Beer Here Fat Cat
Brewery: Beer Here
Style: Amber Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
When the Fat Cat was brewed I was looking for a distinctive hop that might play against the caramel-like malt profile. Nelson Sauvin was one of the only types of hops at the time that was available fresh from the 2008 harvest. The choice was not difficult as in 2006 at the Helsinki Beer Festival I tasted a beer made only with this hop. The malt used is a mixture of British Maris Otter and German münchenermalt along with caramel malt, husked chocolate malt and raw barley from rich New Zealand soil.
