3.6/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear orange-copper body with 1/4 inch, loose, white head. There's usually a little more head as I remember; let's blame this glass on the pour. Head dies pretty quickly to a creamy halo, but leaves a trail of lacing in it's wake. Decent lacing all the way down.

Smell: Toasted biscuit, caramel, and sweet citric hops. Citrus and hops seem more pronounced in this version than others. Overall, very sweet, malty, toasty, and nicely balanced by the citric hops.

Taste: Lots of caramel, citrus, and sweetness lays on top of a toasty, biscuity, backdrop. Very malty. Lots of sweetness with clean hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, well-carbonated, pretty sugary, and clean. Quite smooth.

Drinkability: I've had Fat Tire many times from many different sources. It's always tasted the same to me. This bottle, however, had something else going on (either that, or my palate is out of whack). Much sweeter than normal, and a bit hoppier to boot. This is a decent amber, but nothing special IMO.
