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] shared by KAF. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is corn syrup, malt, and just a little hops. Flavor is slight. Corn syrup, no bitterness, and lots of sweetness with a medium mouthfeel. Short to no finish.

Actually not as bad as I thought it would be. I got a lot of caramel notes in the finish with an overall decent malt character. Still not very good but way better than I thought it would be.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Picked up a single orange 12-oz can at Warehouse Liquors in Duluth, MN. Pours a clear golden pale amber brew with a thick, creamy off-white head that has some spotty lacing and decent white ring. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some grassy hops, a touch of corn grits, and some fruity character. taste is light to medium bodied, quite smooth, with flavors of multi-grain malt and flowery hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a thin malty grain aftertaste. Actually this is much smoother than most macro-brewed beverages I’ve tried.

So now I have to travel to Iowa to find "new" Wisconsin brews. A fine looking can of brew this is. Obtained from Coralville Liquors on a weekend when all the co-eds are back on campus and I find it hard to pay attention to anything but every other pedestrian. That brings me back to this brew. Amber color liquid with a full head of light beige bubbles. This actually looks like a really nice english pale. Slight haze, tall and lasting head... Huh, pale lager, that is what they said they brewed. Reality kicks in with the first big sniff. Old orange juice, stale malt and drying/rotting weeds. Flavor is devoid of many thing, most of all much flavor. Dry, somewhat woody malt, with a touch of dry herbal hops. Still searching for more and not finding anything more to grasp onto. Dry and blah.

For the price, a surprisingly rich brew typical of most Huber products. REminiscent of the first Augsburger I had in 1977.

my buddy nate the viking brought back a can of this from a road trip and i was really surprised by this one. great can. big fluffy white head. beautiful amber color with visible carbonation. toasty amber malt aroma.flavor is toasted malt and a bit of hops. the body is a bit light and fizzy and the finish is a bit weak but for the price it is probably the best beer i have had. and again what a great label.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 31, 2006
In the can from HyVee Council Bluffs. Pours a light amber with a large white head. The head is rich and creamy in texture. Has a faint malty aroma. The body is thin. This is a fairly weak and watery beer. The finish has a slight sweetness of malt and just a kiss of the hops, but overall there’s not much here.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2006
A dark golden to orange appearance. A slight malty and bready aroma. The flavor is somewhat dry with a hint of caramel and sugar. Tastes like a poorly made oktoberfest style beer. Not really all that bad at all for what it is.

Man, what a beer. It was a really good time during that short period of time that I could get it. I drank a twelver of it and then couldn’t get it anymore.
