Fat Weasel Ale is a lively golden ale topped with a soft, creamy, white head. It leaves thick sheets of foam on the glass. It has a light aroma of citrus and wood. It has a smooth, medium body with a chalky finish. It has a sweet and sour malt flavor. It’s tangy and the bitterness is ample and wooden. I guess this is a Scotch ale.

Slightly hazy honey colored. Aroma and taste slightly indistinct and tannic with some sweetness. Not sure what to think of this. $2

This is a decent beer, its flavor is mostly bitter but not much hop aftertaste, it does have some hop aroma though, and its a little sweet, and there’s a tiny bit of hot alcohol taste. It’s an average tasting IPA-Amber.

Golden orange pour with a white head. Lemon, grass, and sweet grain on the aroma. Some hints of yeast, metallic notes, and some damp straw. Tastes of bread, grain, lemon peel, and grass. Lightly metallic on the palate, some weak floral hop notes, and very light bitterness on the finish.

The aroma is weak, caramel, noble hops. The appearance is a clear amber, fluffy white head. The flavor is weak also, caramel, light fruit. The finish is noble hops, also weak. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. The aroma, flavor and finish are low in intensity. But overall, not objectionable, and not terrible.

Bottle from Trader Joes. Light color for amber ale. Aroma is malty/bready with some toast highlights. No hops or esters. Alcohol is quite evident for a 7.1%abv beer. Flavor is lightly toasty with no hop flavor. Finish is dry from alcohol. Cleanly fermented. Medium body and carbonation. Alcohol is far to dominating as a flavor characteristic. Bittering just keeps it from being sweet.
