Fat Cat Lager is handcrafted in the time-honored Bavarian tradition and is a classic Vienna lager. The amber-colored brew has a subtle aroma and crisp, mildly bitter taste. Fat Cat Lager is made with Brewers two-row malt, carapils malt, caramel malt and domestic hops. Fat Cat Lager has a malty, toasty aroma with just a hint of noble hops in a drying finish.

Im not going to get too detailed on this one. Its a cheap lager with a slightly above average taste. I would take this over Bud or Miller any day. You just cant beat the price and the can screams class, nuff said.

Pours a orangeish brown with a large white head. Aroma is malt, corn, touch of hops, metal. Flavor is water, aluminum, corn, touch of hops, slight hint of caramel. Easy to drink, not a lot of flavor but it is what it is, another pale lager that fails to distinguish itself, but is very easy to drink. Meh, at least the orange can and smoking cat look cool.

Infected tasting, some corn but mostly lacto. Wet grains. Not good, better than most bmc but really not worth the time.

Copper orange color, thick white head that diminishes about as fast as the beer goes down. Sweet, carmel malt smell with a similar taste. Finish leaves you wondering. Overall for the price (8 dollars per 12 cans) this beer is pretty solid, not to mention the unique can. "This cat is fat!"

pours orange with a large white head because my bro dropped our case. Sweet caramel aroma. Flavor is really sweet. Maybe corn and sugar with a strange finish. Strangly enjoyable.

12 ounce can from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, rated 4/29/10. Pours a clear golden color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel and grainy notes. The taste is grassy hops, toasted grain and a slightly metallic note. Thin-medium bodied.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Caramel-orange color with an off-white head that falls to a film after a few minutes. Largely bland toasted grain and light toffee nose. Light-to-moderately sweet flavor with some mild yeasty sourness. Toasted bread, light caramel, sourdough yeast and sour, wet & icky grains. Appearance is only redeeming quality. Retro can with the cigar smoking cat is pretty cool.

Can pours golden-orange with a creamy off-white head. Aroma shows caramel, stale cereal, and slight herbal note. Flavor shows the same. Starts sweet and finishes dry on some very muted hops. Nothing exciting but I would still drink this over plenty of macro-brews.

Pours amber with nice white head. Aroma of nail polish remover. Carmel malt-grainy flavor. Paid $8.50 for 12pk @ Woodmans in Kenosha. Not the worst offering by Minhas by far (i.e. Clear Creek Ice).

This is under rated. Not sure about those of you that said it poured a "clear gold". Mine poured a thick golden copper color with an off-white cream head. Very lovely. Aroma of overly sweet caramel and overly ripe fruit. Abundant presence of hops, light presence of malt. Decent bitter after-taste. I remember seeing this while on a tour of the Minnesota Brewing Company in Saint Paul about 10 years ago. Not sure how it ended up with Minhas. Anyone know the alcohol content? I paid $7.49 for a 12 pack. Worth every cent!
