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.

Poured like a brown, decent head with minimal lacing on the glass. Taste was sweet but had a good bite to it. Would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy to drink brown ale.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2003
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Not particularly brown, not particularly nutty. Good toasty porter-like flavors and a creamy medium body. wonderfully drinkable, but mostly forgettable.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Good roasted malt flavor, fairly smooth nut brown. Nice amount of hop flavor sneaks through toward the end along with a subtle sweetness. Overall slightly watered down tasting.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2003
ruby/hazlenut body, little carbonation. toasty and lightly nutty. some citrus fruits in the nose as well. nuttiness developes well throughout. astringent and dry, strong hop presence and noticeable alcohol presence. full in the mouth, decent complexity, but lacks a bit in body.

Light brown color. Pour creates minimal head. Aroma is overwhelmingly malty (true characteristic of the style). Flavor is a bit nutty, initially sweet with just the right amount of bitterness. A very good Brown Ale.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2003
Nutty, caramel aroma, copper, with a small custard head. Huge nutty, bitter flavour. Full bodied, a very nice example. Thanks David.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Not very dark for a brown ale, more of an amber/light copper color with a big pillowy white head. Lightly roasted, nutty caramel malt aroma. Light, soft cashew flavor with subtle malty undertones. Body is a little thin, but the finish is a dry, sweet, and satisfying one. This is a good smooth and drinkable session brown ale.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Mmm...nice roasty scent. A reddish-brown color and a thick long-lasting head make this an appealing beer to look at. But how does it taste? Hmm. Malty. Slight coffee taste. Kind of clings to your mouth, like cough syrup does. Nice enough, but nothing too special.
