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.

hopdog (9990) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Poured a medium and see through brownish/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes of toffee, caramel, nuts and toasted malts. Had a light citric quality to it as well. Lively body.

A sampling from the choice of the three at a cost of $3.50. Again, wish it could have been more than a few ounces so one could discover the life of the beer instead of just the beginning.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Tap at Angelic Brew Pub Maison, Wi. Malty aroma of nuts. Amber body with deacent head and good lacing. Body was a full mix of malts and hops. Not too sweet not too spicey which i’ve found in most winter beers since actualy rating these. Decent brew.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle. Clear deep amber pour with a good 1/2" of off-white head. Probably the least brown brown ale I’ve tried. Wonderful deep roasty and nutty aroma with some caramel, and toffee. Nice medium malty backbone, and smooth across the palate... with some bitter citric notes on the finish. Nutty flavor with just enough sweet caramel was balanced very well with both floral hops and a slight citric twist. Very well done, once again!

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, nuts and faint floral hops. Taste of citrus fruits, grassy hops, mint leaf, light smoke, caramel malts, some diactyl (not bad though), and more nuts. Thanks weeare138!

eslight (2) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2005 does not count
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.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2005
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.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2005
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 isn’t as thin as most of this genre. I would say one of the better brown ales out there.
