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 Brewerís 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.

Love the old school graphics on the can as itís a real eye catcher. Pours an orange gold color with a modest white creamy head that sticks around. Aroma has a light apply juiciness too it with some light corny notes and some hints of noble hops. Flavor is very sweet with light apples, some floweriness, light toasted caramel malt notes, very light metallic hint late in the tasting. Body is modest but surprisingly modest as I was expecting something super light. Slightly an oily and sugary texture to it with some very fine low carbonation. Overall the flavor is waaaay better than I was expecting and much better than the nose was hinting. Wish the alcohol content was listed on the can cause this could be a pretty good session/cheap beer if I found it around these parts as its sweetness comes more from the light touch of adjuncts instead of a hefty right ear of corn. Thanks to JMerritt for setting one of these aside for me.

5/9/11. 12oz can. Clear brown pour with a small tan head - rather dark for a pale lager. Smells and tastes a bit dark, almost like a dunkel as opposed to a pale lager. Still nothing special, though.

The aroma is malty and almost citrus like with more than a little caramel. The appearance is amber with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with grain like maltiness. The palate is not thick and not thin. Overall a very well crafted beer that defies what you expect from a lager.

Purchased for me by my galpal Nancy from "Jungle Jimís" - Okee-dokee, this one pours a bronze hued brew with a fast fading white head, Tastewise, itís pretty much an American BMC typr brew, but the better palate anf malty body sets this one ahead.

This beer is exactly as advertised, i.e., just a good beer for a cheap price. An improved option over domestic crap any day...enjoy!

12 oz orange can. 5.99 a 12 pack. It pours a clear orange with a frothy eggshell colored head. The head is fizzy but has some decent retention. It smells like hoppy dough. That doesnít really mean it is hoppy, just it smell like if you rolled around some hop leaves in some sweet dough. The flavor is a bit heartier than your typical adjunct lager, but it is much lighter than a malt liquor, it is like a bastard melding of the two. I wouldnít go so far as to say it is a vienna lager, maybe it is brewed with vienna malt but i canít really taste it. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 12-15-2010 04:48:32

Sweet caramel and molasses. Sticky and thin mouthfeel with punchy carbonation. Memorable packaging, forgettable beer.

Lucent gold, thin white head, medium body, high carbonation.

Aroma: fruity esters, sweet pale malt, hints of vanilla and wood.

Taste: lots of pale malt sweetness, fruity esters, herbal hop bitterness, and some grainy funk.

Can sample. Poured clear orange amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy malt aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. My expectations where not met with a below average can beer.

Iím not going to get too detailed on this one. Itís a cheap lager with a slightly above average taste. I would take this over Bud or Miller any day. You just canít beat the price and the can screams class, nuff said.
