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.

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.

once again another great new glarus product. Very smooth and overall very good!

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.

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.

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.

tap. one word: caramel. A little burnt, and heavy like a Wisconsin, northwoods brown ale should be. I can understand why they drink it year round up there. Some taste of nuts, possibly chesnuts as the description indicates, and quite good on its own. I had two, one with my beef pastie and another by itself, and both were good. Widely available in WI, but I have trouble finding it elsewhere. If you live where itís cold half of the year, I donít know many brown ales that will be as affordable and that pair up as well as they stand alone.

This is a nut brown that can please even the non-nut brwon drinker. Hazelnut and chocolate with a bit of bread-crustiness in the malt.

gets better everytime. i had it on tap a while back. seemed bitter and flavor wasnít that great. then i went to my dads all he had was spotted cow and this(not that i enjoy turning down spotted cow). so i gave it another whirl. much better this time. it didnít seem to have a bad after taste like the first time i had it. maybe it was a bad batch or something of the sort. iíve had it on the tap since then and it has been good to me.
