COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
100% Wisconsin malt of six different varieties impart the natural toasted color to the bottle conditioned unfiltered ale. Clean hazelnut notes result from these carefully chosen barley malts. Hops from Slovenia, Bavaria and the Pacific Northwest give Fat Squirrel its backbone.

The appearance fuses a hazy brown color with a large off-white head, and the aroma blends toasted and nutty malts and a hint of earthy hops. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, fairly abrupt but nutty finish, medium body, and a slick and thin texture.

RRistow12 (242) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with tan head. Pretty nice complex aroma with notes of caramel, nuts, biscuits, brown sugar, toffee, maple syrup. Taste is moderate sweetness with a faint bitterness at the end. Pretty thin overall with light to medium body. Flavors of caramel, nuts and biscuits. Above average for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle that Brendo brought back from moving his mom. Pours a deep brown with slight white head. Aroma is malty and light roasted pistachios. Taste is very thin and watery brown ale. Nothing special here.

A solid brown ale by New Glarus. Not much going on here. Subtle hops, subtle malt. Roasted, slightly burnt aftertaste.

A bit of an off putting after taste, but still a respectable brown ale that has some good roasted elements.

This is a nice solid brown ale. This will remind you of your first bottle of Newcastle when you were a kid, but without the awful skunked smell/taste.

An excellent bottled brown that tasted fresh as any bottled beer can hope. Toasty, biscuity aspect to the nose with caramel notes. Malt on palate, yet finishes fairly dry with some hop flavor playing a supporting role. Really decent bottled product. Would love to have it locally on tap!
