COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 3.8% pale amber summer beer proudly supports the Marine Conservation Society. Fat Sprat is brewed with Pale Ale malted barley, Munich, Cara and Black malt, with Columbus, English Goldings, Cascade and Chinook hops. It has a lovely citrus, grapefruit aroma with some spicy notes. On the palate, the citrus character of the hops shines through, balanced with a light biscuit flavour and a crisp, dry finish.

Davros IX (129) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017
Mini keg at a springtime party in Brightlingsea. A typical session bitter with a good flavour of malt and bitter hops. This was the first time I tried a 5l keg and it was nice with a low carbonation. Very easy drinking and a perfect session bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (6407) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2017
On cask at the Kenilworth. Appearance - golden amber with a nice lacy head. Nose - red and orange fruit. Light herbs. Taste - orange fruit again. Some redcurrants. Burnt nutty toffee. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture. The finish is dry and crunchy. Overall - good.

jjsint (2834) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Handpull cask at the Castle, Cambridge. Light, thin, brownish red, clear. Tiny bit of white head. Light aroma of redcurrant, strawberry and spruce. Tastes pretty good as well: a sludgy malt sweetness lifted by a bright bittering hop. Finish is kind of acrid, and the body is oily with no perceptible carbonation. A mixed bag, and not Adnams best offering.

Cask-conditioned at the Rummer, Cardiff, 17/9/2015. Amber in colour, with a frothy, white, head. Aroma of oranges and caramel, with some leafy hops. Flavour was malty, with some red berry fruit and a decent, bitter, finish. Enjoyable.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2015
Cask (Castle, Cambridge)
More brown than amber. Fruity aroma, some "red" sweetness. Sweet palate. A bit watery, almost flat. Pleasantly sweet body though. Very low bitterness. Very simple, and sessionable, but boring.
