2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Trader Joe’s contract from Trent Brewing. Lightly colored for an amber. The main thing I noticed is an undercurrent of some kind of fruit in the sweetness that was out of place. Strength is somewhat hidden. Not really that wonderful. Serving: Bottle

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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
