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.

Pours a medium chestnut color with a quickly fading 1/4 inch head. Smell is of peanuts and malt with a citrisy undertone. An understated nutty flavor with a hint of brown-sugar that finishes with orange peel. A nice, easy-drinking beer that calls out for another.

Thanks to GV for the bottle! Appears a glowing brown with a 1 finger off white head that fades quickly. Tiny scatters of lace. Smell is of roasty nuts, light hops, & slightly sour malt. Taste is of the same aromas. Mouthfeel is creamy sweet and sour with an odd sour note that seems to linger at the end.

bottle-pours mahogony amber with a small off-white head. quite a bit of hops for a brown in the aroma with lots of peanut and almond notes. lightly phenolic fro some reason. lots of nuts on the flavors wtih a touch of spicy hops. fairly bitter for a brown ale. carbonation is proper and the body isnít as thin as most of this genre. I would say one of the better brown ales out there.

Bright copper pour with a small skim of light tan head that mostly fades away. Clean, lightly toasty carmel aroma, earthy mild hops, just a hint of butterscotch; simple, but rather nice. Nice nutty carmal flavors. Not overly sweet, though there is a bit of sweetness in the finish. Clean palate. Apart from their mind-blowing fruit beers, one of my favorites from New Glarus, and the nicest American-made brown Iíve tasted. Understated, but full flavored and well balanced. Iím wishing I picked up a six of this, instead of just a single. Ah well. Next time I get to WI.

Unusually huge head for the style. Hazelnut undertones...a nice change. Generally a pretty good brown...but that might be damning with faint praise!

I have tried a number of nutty beers but this one tops them all! If this is on tap at a bar or restaruant, I always ask for it! I love it served real cold (which I typically donít like) and in a tall glass! Give me more please!

From the bottle this pours a light & clear nutty brown with a short white head. Itís got a roasted barley smell with some nuts and some earthy hopping. Medium-to-light bodied, it has a sweet caramel flavor with some roasted malt, nuts, and a light hop bitterness. Not earth-shaking, but a decent enough drink.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 On tap at the Hotel Trempleau. Brown with a white head. Strong toasted nut aroma and flavor. Rich, sweet, and strong. Color is the darkest edge of amber to brown. UPDATE 11/29/10: In the bottle. color seems more of a reddish amber than I last remember. Strong nuttiness continues. A finishing mild bittering palate. Lots more sweetness to this. Almost a lactose sweetness. Big hazelnut at warming. Not a thick beer, but the huge sweetness deters you from wanting more than one.
