3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Anyone who is not turned of by the packaging on this bottle is insane. That being said, this is a decent beer. It is a style I like that many don’t which is a rather mildly hopped blond or pale ale that is clearly American in origin but not matching the APA or IPA style at all. It is clear orange yellow in color w/ a long lasting head of very fine and even sized bubbles. Nose is a touch of grassy hops and some fresh malt character, sort of very vaguely reminding me of a German helles only with a fruity ale yeast background. Taste is simple w/ a touch of malt sweetness blanced by a touch of bitterness. Honestly, if this was four percent alcohol I be jumping for joy but this is over seven percent and in no way justifies that extra alcohol content w/ extra flavor. I am all for seeing more mild styles from craft brewers who these days seem obsessed w/ hops and sours and big stouts but I’d like for those beers to be low and alcohol and drinkable as well.

Not all that exciting. Good beer for a buck at Trader Joe's but that's about the extent of it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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
