You're not my beer, Fat Tire, but I'll drink you anyway. Appearance is a solid amber. Smell is interestingly of cereal and hops, citrus hops at that. Let's give her a taste. I get a hoppy and malty beer with a creamy finish. Nicely done overall. I'd drink it again, but I have an embargo against all NB beers for personal reasons. I'd say drink up if it's your cup of brew hah hah.

3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Serving: On tap, shaker pint
Served: 11 April 2014
Appearance: Brownish red with a cream colored white head. Head seemed pretty intense, but the bartender poured it off the beer when he was pouring it. Left some lacing.
Smell: Soft assertion of chewy caramel.
Taste: Some caramel maltiness with a slightly bitter finish. No hop presence other than the hint of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light with lively carbonation. A very refreshing brew.
Overall: An unimposing beer than is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Tastes like a toned-back Maerzen, which is itself not an imposing style. I would have liked to see a fuller assertion of the malts, with slightly more caramel/molasses notes. Not a bad beer, but probably not one I would buy for personal consumption at home.
Serving type: on-tap
