A classic mid-brown coloured strong bitter, with a markedly bitter finish from the generous use of Styrian hops. Flavoursome English pale malt adds balance and a smooth finish, which lasts and lasts. Full-bodied, yet with an ease of drinking which belies its strength.

FatPhil (11490) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2015
Cask (Fat Cat, Norwich)
Sweet muesli and rabbit food malt/hop aroma combo. Taste basically the same, grainy and very branny. A perfectly sound branny bitter, don’t let anyone call it twiggy, it’s not, it’s branny.

sound67 (570) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
[Waterloo Beer Festival, Liverpool, 2014] - Fat Cat Brewery Marmalade, 5.5%, hell kupferfarben, kaum Schaum. Milde florales Aroma mit etwas Zitrus. Recht voll im Mundgefühl, kaum wässrig. Dichte Textur. Im Antrunk kräftig floral und recht bitter, sehr hopfenbetont. Malz schiebt nach. zur Mitte und in den Abgang hinein zunehmend bitter, wie vor keine erkennbare Fruchtigkeit. Nachhall weniger bitter, dafür sehr floral, anhaltend. Kräftiges, hopfenbestimmtes Bier auch für den kontinentalen Geschmack.

Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic). A clear amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of sugary orange like fanta/tango, some caramel, peach and slightly nutty. Taste of fruity malt, orange, some peach, biscuit, toffee and spicy hops. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A slightly dry, orange marmalade taste in the finish. Quite complex and tasty, took me a while to get into it though.
