Fat Squirrel Ale

12 oz single, thanks to Kevin for the chance to try this one. Always delighted to try a New Glarus beer, and this is no exception.
Pour provides a body that is quite clear and has a reddish-copper pour with a somewhat small head. Not much retention or lace.
Good malty nose, but unfortunately the nose does not really translate into much depth in the taste. Quite honestly, it tastes really quite weak. This is disappointing to me because if this were a really good example of an English Brown Ale it would have a lot more malty depth, and this does not. Even a little watery.
A tiny nut element and perhaps a modicum of smoke as well – shocking.
I dunno, I just expect more of NG, in a style that I thought that they might pull off, but it ended in a disappointing manner for me. Shame, an opportunity missed for me.
