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.

The different malts in this give the beer a great taste of Caramel and nuts. Full bodied. Great finish. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Along with Spotted Cow (which isnít that great), this is the classic NG beer that everyone in WI claims to love. Very nutty flavor but not overpowering, with an excellent texture and mouthfeel. This beer is a great session beer, just very smooth and very tasty. There is a good reason this is one of the best Brown Ales on ratebeer. Outstanding.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Pours orange, similar in appearance to New Glarusí Staghorn. Sweet molasses and hazelnut really take the center stage in the flavor department. I enjoy these in the fall while camping. Pretty decent.

Pours a golden amber with a 3/4" beige head. Aroma of roasted nuts and sweet malt. The nuttiness was more in the nose than taste. Creamy texture with a slight sour aftertaste. This was much heavier than I would have expected, but very much enjoyed!

Smells like burnt wood, coffee, and leather, looks dark amber and red. Opens with burn oak then along with a slightly heavy caramel sweetness comes a surprisingly appropriate sourness. Fades into a subtle, smokey wood and coffee finish. Medium to lite mouth feel. Would go great with barbecue or simple starchy foods.

It poured a brown with about a finger of head that left some good lacing. The aroma was of mild caramel with a hint of vanilla and nuts. The taste was that of caramel with a hit of nuttiness. The hops provided, for me, a crisp finish. I found a nice medium body. An all around good brown ale, which I would drink again.

Pours with little head, but an ubiquitous brown coloring makes this beer inviting. Little or no aroma detected. However, taste leaves something to be desired, as carbonation and nutty zing hits head on and can be overbearing. But then again, I am not the biggest fan of Brown Ales.

nuts, creambrown, hazy, frothy, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, abrupt finish, lightly bitter, I appreciated this nutty style, creamy head beer from the local masters that goes well with sweets like chocolate cake or apple pie. It is subdued in flavor, almost passive.

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.
