Why this is so popular I don't know. This is like the trendy beer of the month. I'm guessing it serves as the crossover beer for those lesser individuals who drink Coors and Bud all the time. Makes 'em feel fancy to drink a "microbrew."

"Whoa, this is strong, so many flavors," they say.

Sure, compared to the swill (am I saying this correctly, I am saying that only a swine would drink this beer) they usually drink, Fat Tire is amazing.

And so:
Light orange fizz. Perfumey. Bubbly. Biscuity.

Serving type: bottle
