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.

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 (5111) - 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.

12oz can, that has probably been sitting around for a while. Pours very dark for a pale lager, looks more like a vienna. Mostly clear amber / orange / brown color. Has an impressive big light tan head with good retention. Bits of lace. Nice toasty aroma, hint of chocolate, even. Sweet taste. Smooth, crisp carbonation. Medium body. Pretty tasty and easy to drink.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
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/

Can. Pours a hazy orange color with a small head. Grassy notes with a hint of malt. Dry taste with some grassy malt notes. Pretty decent for a can. I really liked this.

Date: December 10, 2011 Mode: Can Source: BVery Description: Orangish brown pour with minimal head and no lacing, hoppy and malty aroma and taste. Not too bad surprisingly.

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.
