Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium Brewing Company glass. I must say that the company had me with their exceptional beers, however the free glasses they sent me for commenting on a Facebook post really had me in love with them. (What can I say... I'm a sucker for free stuff)
Anyway the beer...
A: A very, very light brown color. When held near light it appears as a nice, light mahogany glow. A fluffy, thick head dissipates to a flat foam on top. Bubbles constantly circulate the glass though.
S: The slightest hint of apples is present. The hops are the standout scent. All of the fragrances are wrapped in a caramelized aroma.
T: This tastes very much like the scent. A grainy/biscuit taste is present. There is not an overpowering characteristic to this beer. Everything is balanced.
M: Light mouthfeel. Creamy aftertaste. Little bite.
Overall: This is a very fine beer. Yes it is not a beer for a budget but this is something people should try at least once. New Belgium offers beers that are much better than this in my opinion. As far as American Ambers go, Fat tire is above average.
