This is the first draft beer from our new kegerator at our house. Pretty stoked about that.

A: Murky, deep brown. Fluffy, off-white head. Still dialing in the CO2 pressure, so maybe a little fluffier than usual?

S: Clean. Malty, some subtle hops in there. Kind of smells like clean soil, walnuts. Earthy smelling. Nice.

T: More of the walnut thing, slightly bitter. Some hoppy flavor which balances everything out nicely. Very little alcohol obviously, so no flavors from that or affiliated esthers.

M: Still clean. Not cloying like some examples of this style have been in my opinion. Just there and then finishes dry.

D: This was initially a session ale for EEBC, so it's obviously one of the more drinkable beers around. Low alcohol, dry, sessionable in a big way.

Comes out of the tap a rich warm brown, barely translucent, with a fairly thick pale tan head. Aroma is rich and malty with hints of cinnamon, smoke and caramel. Flavor is mainly malty and has nutty, smoky and spicy tones - one can really taste how the malt is roasted. Texture is smooth and very pleasing.

A: Nice amber color. Pours with a cream colored head. Some lacing.

S: A bit of vanilla and a touch of smoke.

T: I didn't expect much from this beer, however the rich toasted malt was strong and delicious! Lots of caramel and sweet smoky malt.

M: The mouth-feel is a bit thinner than I would like in this style. Rolls off the tongue a little too clean for a brown ale.

D: This a very drinkable beer. It is a very nice balance to the IPA craze going on. Pick up a growler of Big Hop along with it and you are sure to please your friends.

Thanks Uncle Buck for getting one of these for me tonight! Really enjoyed it. Great smooth taste....really only 3.6% ABV? Have a tough time believing. Still nice and tasty. Would like to get more of this in Beaver County. Always happy to support the local brew. Nice malt flavor and a near perfect mouthfeel.

Pours a very nice deep brown with very good head and very nice lacing. It has a wonderful deep scent, dark and heavy, with great malt tones, without being unbalanced. Great taste, very deep, too, with a great nutty flavor and a nice dark malt flavor, without being too sweet. It goes down extremely well.

This one grew on me. At first there is nothing special, but that's really the point. It's not overpowering and is just right. Not too much of anything.

An overall good beer that isn't in the sterotype of small craft brews. Very drinkable and tasty.

Pours a deep amber to brown in color, with a light tan head. In the aroma, sweet malt, small nuttiness, and a small roast. In the taste, sweet roasted malt and a small dry nuttiness. A small hop bite, and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry nuttiness in the aftertaste. A nice representation of a UK style brown.

Fat Gary has a dark brown body with about two fingers of thick, creamy looking head. Only a few bits of lacing are left, but the retention is pretty good.

The aroma has toffee and a bit of bitter chocolate from the malts. A hint of nuttiness in the background.

The flavor follows the aroma. Malty and just a touch rich. Toffee and bitter chocolate and a general sweetness from the malts. A bit of hops in the background that add a hint of spiciness and fruitiness. The finish has a big, nutty flavor that is the highlight of the beer. As far brown ales go, this is how I like them: nutty, malty and easy drinking.

The mouthfeel is pretty full, even a bit creamy with moderate to low carbonation.

I really like this beer. I have to admit that I don't love brown ales, and as a result I've never picked up a growler of this beer. As far as brown ales go, however, Fat Gary is a very good one. I hate drinking a brown ale with a huge hop profile and 7%ABV. Give me something creamy, malty, nutty, and very easy drinking.
