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.

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.

Tmoney99 (10408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
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.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours a orangeish brown with a large white head. Aroma is malt, corn, touch of hops, metal. Flavor is water, aluminum, corn, touch of hops, slight hint of caramel. Easy to drink, not a lot of flavor but it is what it is, another pale lager that fails to distinguish itself, but is very easy to drink. Meh, at least the orange can and smoking cat look cool.

Infected tasting, some corn but mostly lacto. Wet grains. Not good, better than most bmc but really not worth the time.
