Not all that exciting. Good beer for a buck at Trader Joe's but that's about the extent of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fat Weasel Ale has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, semi-sweet bread crust, vegetable oil, and some hop resin. Taste is of sweet, white bread crust, moss, malt, and nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and somewhat slick, and Fat Weasel Ale finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and delicious. Only a bit of the alcohol shines through. RJT

Bottle, pours a golden color, foamy white head. Malty aroma with yeast. Weak flavor, not one of the better beers we tasted that night.

This batch was contract brewed at River Trent Brewing co., Ukiah, CA via Trader Joes. Bland and uninteresting amber ale. Malt is primary feature here, metallic finish.

tmoreau (2422) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet showing a hazed, amber color, with a quickly diminishing layer of off white head foam, but decent persistence to the doily-like lacing. The nose was sweet grain & caramel, with some metallic scent. The hop bitterness in the taste was lingering, earthy, rind-like, and somewhat over done. Medicinal hints followed, with some malty sweetness, and noticeable alcohol. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, but a finishing aftertaste that was a continuation of the bitterness, rind-like astringency, with a little sweetness & booziness, and not all that favorable.
