Served in the 12 oz. bottle into a dimple pint. The color is more golden but slightly amber, with a wispy, ringy white head. The smell is caramel sweetness with a touch of noble hopping. The taste is dominated by caramel, with a sweet honey flavor as well, but well-balanced by a Tettnang/Hallertau hop that provides a presence without being overpowering. Mouthfeel is average. As for drinkability, some could say this is a bit cloying, but I think it's balanced just correctly, and as such this is such a nice session beer that I could easily drink this all day
Thanks to BlueMooner for this bottle. I imagine that people in the western part of the US, with Fat Tire's ubiquity, would be absolutely surprised that Fat Tire is so sought after by people east of the Mississipi where we don't see a drop of it. It's a shame that we don't see it out this way, but I could see myself drinking this one on a hot summer day....a terrific sessioner, and I see just why it's such a hit...one I'd enjoy having again.
