COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fat Cat Lager is handcrafted in the time-honored Bavarian tradition and is a classic Vienna lager. The amber-colored brew has a subtle aroma and crisp, mildly bitter taste. Fat Cat Lager is made with Brewer’s two-row malt, carapils malt, caramel malt and domestic hops. Fat Cat Lager has a malty, toasty aroma with just a hint of noble hops in a drying finish.

Can: Honey nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy head. Dark honey, tinny. Bitter parsley finish. Hmm, a lager from Minhas. I expected the worst, probably a lifeless, flavorless macroish pale lager. What I got was a lager with a fairly rich malt bill and actual hoppiness. It’s not without its detractors as I didn’t care for the metallic qualities, but this was more than respectable.

Barreras (948) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a true amber color that appears to glow in the class. Aroma is of smelly sweetness almost if the beer was left out to spoil. Taste is a bit off, I can taste a tinge of caramel mixed with malt. The mixture of this beer is off that gives it a bready flavor.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
In the can thanks to a nice trading partner. Pours a rust orange appearance with a big khaki head. Slight butter, toffee, caramel, and herbal / grassy aroma. Twangy fruity, chewy, slightly metallic, very sweet flavor. A lot of sugar in the aftertaste. Scroll past this weak shit.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Slightly hazy amber with a pillowy off white cap. Nose is sweet and caramel/biscuity with a touch of cracker. Nice calm sweet flavor of toasted and sweet english muffin, a kiss of earthy caramel, and wheat-like tones. Not shabby, and really kinda enjoyable.

Can. Apple, cider, acetaldehyde. Maltiness is appropriate. Seems clean. Is what it is.

12oz can pours a clear caramel amber with some thin, white head. Nose of corn, biscuit, malt, honey cough drops. Flavor is the same, very much like a honey cough drop, malt, slightly floral. Sweet finish. Too one note.

pours a orange brown with a hard hit punch with malts and slight spices. the hops are slight and it gives a rich creamy head.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Orange can. Pours slightly unlcear amber orange with large light beige head. Smell is big caramel with lots of light fruitiness. Taste is very fruity with a milky/buttery carmel. There was a sourish, metal thing going on in the finish. Very sweet. Was quite surprised of how much flavor was in this brew, though. Honestly expected this to be pretty pour. Kind of a cool can too.

12oz can. Another run of the mill lager. Very bland and blah. Aroma and flavor are pretty none existent.

Cybercat (3225) - Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Comes out of the can a pretty clear amber with a thick, cream-colored head. Robust aroma is mainly fruity - apple, pear, and a whisper of banana - with a malty underpinning. Fruity, malty flavor has notes of apple, cherry, pear and banana and a hint of - varnish? Body is typical but has good fizz. Better than most lagers I have tried.
