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.

Bottle. Pour is copper brown with a small off white head. Slight nutty aroma with caramel present, too. Sweet fruit flavor with some caramel and nuts. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel. I remember this one being much better than this.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2011
12oz bottle poured into snifter. Light brown color but not dark enough to be called a brown ale in my eyes. Aroma has slight hints of roasted malts with hints of cherrios. Flavor is slightly sweet with hints of toasted oats. Not bad but not all I was hoping for.

ICEatALAMO (928) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2012
bottle. Pours a nice brown color. The aroma is very nutty and roasty, very warm smelling. The flavor is full and the hops come through only slightly with more of the malt and roast flavor coming through. A very drinkable brown ale.

Pint at Anduzzi's sports club in green bay. Nice nut brown ale but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryecatcher (778) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium-deep chestnut color with an off-white head, superior retention and lacing. Nose is caramel, nuttiness, hops, toasted bread. Mouth is medium bodied, those same caramel malts, dates, mild sweetness that fades quickly, not much of a finish body. I find brown ales to be a feast or famine style and this one isnít really all that Iíd hoped it would be... a bit weak to be honest. Plenty of squirrels up here in the Dells but I havenít seen any actual fat ones... but it is the end of a very long winter, so thatís not surprising.

Nuts, caramel, and toffee dominate the aroma on this brown ale. All follow onto the palate. Finishes with an interesting earthy nutty flavor.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with 1FastSTi. Clear copper pour, thin white head fleeting in duration. Aroma is of mild maltiness with an odd apple? smell. Pretty boring flavor, though nicely balanced. Palate is thin and lacking in depth. Overall a somewhat boring beer in a very boring style category. I will say that there was some oxidation in the finish, so possibly not the freshest sample?

Slight nutty smell. Niether good or bad; better than newcastle but thatís not saying much. I was hoping for something punchier form this brewery, but again the h20 dominates. If you want something from New Glarus for the winter season I suggest getting their Uff-da Bock which is way better and bolder.
