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.

Brown and hazy. Small beige head. Aroma is muted...malty, nutty and some light notes of chocolate. Flavor is really good, surprising after a pretty mundane aroma. Malty, chocolate, frutiy, nutty and sweet. Smooth and easy drinking. I would drink this any time!

Bottle. Chocolate and nut malt aroma. Dark amber with large off-white head. Sweet nutty chocolate malt and mildly bitter fresh hay hops flavor. Very nice - another NG winner.

hopscotch (10657) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Sparkling clear, copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head... which diminishes to a small, creamy, lasting head. The aroma is all about milk chocolate, pecans and caramel... a turtle, basically. The flavor is well-balanced, chocolatey and nutty. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey, dry finish.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is caramel and hazelnuts. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and light roasted malt with nice bitter finish. Easy to drink, a good brown ale from New Glarus.

"poured light for a brown ale. mahogony. smelled of pleasant sweet malt and nuts. nice malt profile in the nose and flavor. clean hazelnut flavor. not as "stand up and take notice" as say, a Rogue Hazelnut brown, but above average with a smooth finish."

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Thanks to buckybeer for this one. Pours deep brown with 1-finger khaki head. Aroma of rich roasty malt, huge nuts (walnut, hazelnut, almond), brown sugar, peaty malt. Dense, complex, nutty palate, with flavors of roast malt, the aforementioned nuts, brown sugar, and cacao. This is a world class nut brown ale, and I cannot believe they didn’t add real nuts to this. If you don’t like this, then you are a real nutsack.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 11, 2011
355mL. Pour is exquisite for what I was expecting to be a pretty dull, boring beer. A clear, deep amber brown body is topped with a thick, fluffy, coffee tan head with excellent retention and big time lace. Pretty much the best you can ask for in a brown ale. Aroma at first is metallic but moves thankfully to black cherries and husky caramel malt and cinnamon. Taste is rich, creamy, lots of coffee cake, full bodied without a sugar presence. Slight bitterness adds balance and sharpness. Even a bit of spicy alcohol and coconut peeks through to make this feel richer than 5.5% would suggest. Mouthfeel is perfection. For session brown ale, this is a gold medalist.
