The beer that made New Belgium famous! Fat Tire pours a most clear amber color with a modest off-white head. The aroma is sweet with malts with a touch of caramel. The taste is a delicious toasted malt and spice blend. Though it’s list as an amber ale, it has more spice taste then some companies Oktoberfest offering. It finishes with a slight chalky after taste. I’ve had this in my cooler for about 6 months and I think it drinks a little nicer now that it did when it’s fresh off the truck. A highly drinkable and highly enjoyable amber brew.

I first had this from the bottle and though it was a decent beer, it was nothing to recommend to a friend. Then I went to my local Irish Pub, with the intent of having a couple Guinness with lunch, and found they had this on tap. I ordered one.
The head was minimal, but the appearance was a nice amber. The taste had a bit of hop but finished sweet. I'd describe the flavor as hoppy bubblegum. Surprisingly, I liked it. It was much better on-tap than from the bottle. I liked it so much I had another and never got to my Guinness (Sorry Grandpa McBride).
Serving type: on-tap
