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.

Nice deep copper coloured body with a very thin, half a centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of light malt, cereal, caster sugar and a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Chewy, malty flavour with some pungent cardboard, some funky yeast and some deep caramel malt tucked in. Aftertaste shows a slight amount of hops, some alcohol, some grass and herbal notes, but mostly a deep malt flavour that isn’t great nor bad - but I guess that’s good for the style!?! Overall, not a horrible beer, but decen tto sample with the can and all. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Village Market in San Francisco (Ferry Building), California on 15-January-2012 for US$1.49 sampled at home on the opposite coast in Washington on 16-February-2012.

This actually pours a hazy darker amber color with a thick tan head. Aroma smells like hay or straw...like the stuff you throw in a hamster or rabbit cage as bedding. Flavor is malty and follow suit with the aroma. Mouthfeel is light and a bit watery...finish is malty and sweet with a earthy/caramel note.

The cat is where its at nice surprise...not your average American Lager....nice color to it. Taste somewhere between a decent Octoberfest and Anchor Steam. Has a little bite to the taste. Would seek this one out again/

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Can. Wow - is this really a pale lager? Very impressive if the style bucket its in is reasonably accurate. Orange pour with a soapy white head. Sweet nose with a hint of caramel, yeast, and bread. Medium mouthfeel, but pretty darn smooth. Mild dark fruit, sweetness, and .... wow, I just can’t believe this is in the same style category as Bud Light.

(12oz can thanks to Cavie) clear rich gold-orange with big frothy tan head. Nose of sugar, celery, rye and wort. Taste of caramel, bread, brown sugar, unfermented beer, lots of residual sugar and malt here.

This seems okay with a pretty flavorful initial taste. Enjoy the sweetness, but I wish there was more bite.
