I drank this from a 12oz bottle into a Rochefort chalice.

The beer pours a very light clear brown with a light white head, not much retention or lacing.

The aroma is light sweet, roasted matls, typical brown ale, a little skunk.

The taste is a brown ale mixed with skunk and at the end a little malt. This is not good by any means. The feel is very light, not drinkable.

A - Nice, clear, brownish-red with decent head that pretty quickly fades

S - Eh, not much to say. Some caramel in there.

T - A bit on the too bitter side for me, malt's not making a proper presence. The malt is really too overpowered by the bitterness to be well distinguished.

M - A little thin.

D - Not bad, but a little too bitter if you're in the mood for a brown ale.

Overall - I liked this a lot better the first time I had it. It actually prompted me to pick up Ale Asylum's Madtown Nut Brown Ale, which now ironically makes Fat Squirrel seem worse...
