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.

Dark redish brown with a light tan head. Simple aromas of buttery-nut malt. Roasted nut flavor with some chocolate and then pine in the finish, good flavor. Medium body, somewhat watery palate.

Tried this in Wisconsin Dells. Got me into brown ales. The flavor was average, and could use a little more alcohol. Not a bad beer, but there is definitely better out there.

Brown ales arenít really my favorite style but this is one of my favorite breweres. There is much more malt aroma and malt taste to this brown ale. It has a roasty charachter to it that makes it more enjoyable than most Iíve had.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 About as good as a brown ale can get. Unspectacular malt aroma. Brown with sediment. Flavor is surprisingly complex for the style. Dark roasted malt, similar to an oatmeal stout. Sweet and nutty.

Superior Brown Ale!!! Donít exactly have the largest sampling record on this category but this could possibly be my favorite. Nice nutty flavor, little bitter, smooth and very drinkable. Another great Wisconsin beer courtesy of JPDIPSO. Canít miss on New Glarus!!!

Bottle NIce malty aroma, with some hint of hazelnut, as the bottle suggests. Dark copper, with a thin head that doesnít last long. Nice malty flavor, a bit roasty with some chocolate and nutty tones. A little thin on the palate, however. I enjoyed this.

I donít really like brown ales. This one is pretty good though. Thin, yet a bit roasty for a brown.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Deep red coppery body, thin/medium light cream head. Toasty, nutty aroma with a touch of chocolate and earthy hops. Pretty thin-bodied but with a nice flavor profile, quite toasty and earthy with brown sugar and a slight nuttiness. Perfect for session drinking; this does everything right despite being light in body. Iím finding that New Glarus excels in subtlety.
