New Belgium Fat Tire is thick, creamy, and bready.
It poured amber (duh) with a significant head. It left a good amount of lace on the glass. The smell and flavor were muted and non-distinct. The feel is where this ale shined, with an incredibly pleasant thick creamy and bready feel. I try not to replicate phrases used on labels, but the feel of this ale truly was biscuity. The flavor won't bring me back, but the feel will.
Knowing how in demand Fat Tire is, my initial thought while having it for the first time, was "overrated" because there was very little flavor. I was pleasantly surprised to see it has an overall "B" on this site, because that's right where it belongs.
