3.9/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Standard amber hue, perfectly expected for the style. Decent head sticks around for a spell, then gives way to a generous ring of lacing.
Smell: Malt and hops duking it out, but at a distance.
Taste: Toasty and quite malty, though I'm tasting the hops in this beer more than I ever have before. In the end, balance is the key characteristic.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with decent carbonation.
Drinkability: Easily sessioned, as I have done many a time.
Notes: Fat Tire was a gateway into the craft beer world for me. As such, it will always have a warm spot in my heart. Upon revisiting it after a long absence, I find it once again to be more than a decent brew. I'd say the draft version is superior to bottle, although you can't go wrong either way.
Serving type: on-tap
