Faded amber brown in color & boasting great clarity. 1/2 inch head drops to a collage of wispy foam & bubbles. A good amount of sticky lace remains.
Well balanced aromas of caramel, floral hops, toasted bread & dry biscuit.
Tastes livelier than the simplicity of the nose suggested. Though not awash in bitterness per se, the hop profile is well crafted & very flavorful with a penchant for floral overtones & juiciness. Caramel & toasted malts meet a supportive role.
Medium body with prickly carbonation sufficient to make the most of the IBUs contained herein. Mostly clean finish; some residuals linger briefly.
I have no complaints as far as drinkability. Fat Tire is quite the easy drinker. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it tastes pretty darn good. Now I see what all the fuss has been about.
