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 brown with eggshell white head, aroma is light molasses, oat, roasted malt, and a touch of hops. Taste is some light floral hops, leading into molasses, roast, and a slightly dry bitter finish. Very nice, tasty, and very sessionable.

Big thanks to jarlbartar for bonusing me this brew. Pours deep golden brown with distinguished half inch white head. The nose is full of roasty maltiness, nuttiness and mild yeast spiciness. The initial moment of flavor seems to start out like a typical brown with a charge of malt astringency. But here it is faint and very brief. The taste quickly becomes rich, smooth, malty and nutty. The roastiness starts first then nuttiness enters along with faint caramel candy. Nice mild nutty after taste. Very nice.

Ughsmash (7281) - 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!

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2009
courtesy of abents. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is malty with light hazelnut nose, light hops with some esters. Taste toasted malts, nutty mouthfeel. Overall finish has good notes of the hazelnuts but also some hints of chocoltae and caramel. Possible ester palate with some faint fruity notes of dark fruits/pear in the after taste. At 5.5% this is an amazing brew, very drinkable.

marcus (7230) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2010
From bottle at Davis Beerfest 2010. Pours brown with a green tinge and a thick off-white head. The aroma is nutty, and so is the flavor, with a dry bitter finish.

phaleslu (7224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear amber-brown color with virtually no head. Aroma of nuts, brown sugar, caramel malts, barley, and toast. Flavor of nuts, brown sugar, caramel malts, barley malts, toast, bread, and mineral notes. Light-bodied, with minimal carbonation and a really light mouthfeel. This is pretty weak for a brown ale. It isn’t bad for a beer you’d drink a ton of in one night, but for a brown ale, it doesn’t do much.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.
