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.

Caramel color with a malty aroma. Great malty flavor, almost creamy feeling with a nutty finish on the back of your tongue. Great gateway beer into the nuttier sort.

Sweet malty caramel smell. Light brown in color with a white head. Lots of malt flavor. I like nuttyness too. Similar to Fat Tire, but much better. At $7 a six pack, this is great!

Hazy Brown with a touch of crimson, filmy head, mild carbonation and good lacing. Very roasty nose with chocolate, hazelnets, roasted barley and some mild hoppiness. Flavor is fairly roasty and chocolate forward with some nutty notes, roasted barley & malts and some mild floral hoppiness. Body is fairly light with some pretty strong carbonation. Very tasty brown ale!

Poured into a snifter tasting glass from a bottle. The beer has a amber color. There was a good mix of aromas: nut, caramel, vanilla, and fruit (peach). The beer had a clean, smooth, crisp sweet finish.

Nice brown ale. Pleasant nutty and toasted aroma. Lightly sweet, with a nutty flavor. Toasted malt dominates. Medium body very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of slight toasted hazelnut and dark bread. Dark brown color with light minimal head. Flavor is light and toasted. A weak body and light carbonation. Not as much flavor as I was hoping but a decent nut brown

A: Brownish/Amber Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head, Some Lacing S: English Malts, Biscuits, Mild Toffee T: Sweet English Malts, Bready, Mild Cocoa, Mild Coffee M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Malty Overall, definitely an english brown ale but a milder version of one. Good to drink if you like the style but nothing really worth chasing down.
