Fat Tire pours a clear amber color with a small, frothy white head on top. The foam dissolves quickly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.
The aroma is malty with caramel with a touch of pale malt and a touch of rye. Some light fruit (apple) and a touch of grassy hops.
Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is creamy with light carbonation. The flavor is malty with a touch of spice. Caramel malt and bread dominate, possibly rye. A little fruityness in the middle with a moderate grass and pine hoppy bitter finish. Once gone the bread and grass bitterness lingers on the palate.
This is a tasty, easy drinking beer. A bit more malty than I expected. Have to thank a friend for giving me a can from a recent trip to the mid west.
Serving type: can
