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.

Amber liquid with an off-white head that leaves little lacing. Carmel malt with much less sweet nuttiness than Iíd prefer in a brown ale. A bit bitter, a bit sweet, but not enough in between. The beer isnít terribly complex and could have a somewhat cleaner grain flavor. A tad thin. I found this beer a bit disappointing but far from bad.

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.

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.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle. Clear, deep amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Muted aroma of roast, toasted grain, nuts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Taste reveals roasted malts with a hint of tart cherry. Thin flavor to go along with the thin aroma. Lacking richness from the malts. Almost like this was made so as not to offend anyone. So it doesnít wow anyone either. A disappointment considering the brewer.

ICEatALAMO (998) - 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.

ryecatcher (825) - 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.
