COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fat Angel, rest his soul, had a complex palate that balances the rich pleasures of malt with the crisp refreshing flavor of hops with a finish that is fresh and clean. Eminently drinkable, Fat Angel brought divergent tastes together to create a satisfyingly smooth harmony.

I'm just not impressed. It was too fruity tasting for me. I won't visit it again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no date listed. RB calls it retired so I wonder how old this bottle is? But it looks nice. The pour is a mahogany amber color with a lingering cream colored head and good clarity. The aroma brings out the anticipated English-style toasted breaded malt characters and caramel sweetness with a clean but grassy hop note. Light body. The taste is a slight letdown compared to the aroma because there is this soapy type character in the flavor along with the sweet malts and mild hop finish.

Bottle trade with SJ. Not much going on here. Some hop, caramel malt. Thin body. It was ok.

This is a really solid pale ale, with a slight aroma of vanilla, and a nice hop flavor with just a hint of malt.

This was the best and easiest to drink pale ale Ive ever had the pleasure of drinking. Never again will you taste a better pale ale.

johnnnniee (3892) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Ive walked past this brew countless times at the store and for whatever reason I picked some up today (3-14-2008). Pours a hazy copper/amber with a thin white head that doesnt last to long. Minimal lacing on the way down. Aroma hits me with some vanilla, some spicy hops, and a bit of caramel in the background. Taste is a watery mix of citrus hops and very minimal malt. Medium to thin body. Overall decent brew, I could see myself drinking a few on a hot summer day, but not great enough to buy on a regular basis.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2010
A: snifter. Nice light mahogany color with a slightly off-white head. Decent head retention, and a fair amount of lacing. S: aroma is of sweet malts and honey. A strong sense of honey. It almost has the aroma of sweet iced tea. Also has a strong aroma of caramel. T: very solid malt backbone, good caramel malts. Some iced tea characteristics. The hops are way in the back, with some solid earthy tones with a hint of citrus. M: good palate, but a little watery. Carbonation level is a little low. Boy is a little thicker than expected. D: I could drink this forever, but it does wear a little thin. A good staple.

Had this back in twenty-aught-six: Hazy, golden orange color. Slight head but with a nice lace. Cloudy and hazy. Little carbonation. Strong, sweet malt smell but with a slight hop background. Malt dominates. Very minor apricot smell. Strong yeast flavor, but with a malty base. Has a hit of hops that offsets the malt. Very bitter hop accent, but still dominated by hops. Three-headed monster: yeast, then malt, then hops. (And with that hint of apricot.) Medium-body, almost a dry feel. Has a strange, ashy feel, like an ashtray. Flatter-than-normal, but an ale. A decent, somewhat fruity brew. Fruity, sweet malt with a tiny bitter jab.

Bottle. 12 oz. Pours hay blonde with a moderate, slightly fizzy white head. Aroma of hops, wheat, sweet malts, and odd little hints of funk and bubblegum. Medium to thin bodied with a crisp, refreshing, semi-tart finish. Decent brew.

A smooth and medium bodied pale ale with a light, malty flavor. Nothing special.
