Fat Weasel Ale is a lively golden ale topped with a soft, creamy, white head. It leaves thick sheets of foam on the glass. It has a light aroma of citrus and wood. It has a smooth, medium body with a chalky finish. It has a sweet and sour malt flavor. It's tangy and the bitterness is ample and wooden. I guess this is a Scotch ale.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours smooth with a frothy, yet thin, head that dissipates quickly. A bit of lacing. Cloudy, golden amber. Refreshing and light. Has a nice wheatiness balanced with the lingering bitterness of the hops. Almost has a tea-like aftertaste. Unremarkable but easy to drink.

Pours with a soapy, sudsy head and a slightly hazy light copper color, same color as a pale ale. Nose has a sharp bitterness to it; boozy, some bready malts, has the familiar smell of malt liquor, that sugar adjunct smell. Taste is a bit better than the nose but definitely reminds me of a malt liquor. Does not have the toasted, malty or caramelly goodness that comes with an all-grain brew, so adjuncts are definitely a big factor in this brew. Tastes like table sugar and not rice or maize. I'm very disappointed by this because I bought it on a whim from Trader Joe's and was excited to try it. Should have gone with the Session Lager for the same price, instead of this inferior brew.
