I haven't yet brewed this, but found it online:

I think it looks good. Any other Fat Squirrel lovers want to see if they think it's close?

Ok I couldn't wait any longer. My keg of Kolsch kicked today, so I cleaned the lines and tapped the Fat Squirrel clone. and I popped my last bottle of the real thing so I could compare:

Beers side by side with a flash- they look alike

Without a flash- mine looks darker

I have to admit I was so impatient that I couldn't even wait for mine to chill- it's still pretty warm. Both beers start out with a nice nutty flavor, and then the subtle roastiness comes through, followed by the hops. I think mine has a little more hop bite than the original, but all in all I think it's pretty darned close.

I call this "mine", but it's really Yooper's recipe, and based on this first tasting, It's awesome! I have ten gallons of this stuff, and it's gonna go fast!
