Pours a cloudy copper with a big tan frumpy head that lasts. Gives off a pear aroma, yeasty, kinda skunky and reminiscent of the dump or the recycling center (though I suppose "biscuity" is the more generous term). The strongest points of this beer are its appearance and enchanting tingly feel. Tastes of apples and earthy, doughy malts. In many bars this one is as good as it gets and I know that I'll have many Fat Tires to come, though I probably never buy it in a store.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.
A: A clear ruby with moderate head and retention.
S: Malty and sweet smelling.
T: Same as the smell but more complexity. A tiny bit of fruit.
M: Surprisingly rich and smooth. Below average carbonation.
O: A decent brew but not the best of the style. Solid.

Looks fantastic. It is a perfect coppery-reddish amber I look for in an amber ale. Soft white foamy head dissipates soon after. Smells like a great amber as well, somewhat modest with a sweeter scent. Not too much of a punch in the flavor however I find the mellow quality desirable. THere is a bit of an alcholic taste at first then dies down to a numbing sensation. Mouthfeel is incredible. Full thickness of the amber brew lingers in my mouth.
Had this beer had a better flavor, I would raise the overall score. As is, this beer rates a 4.25-4.5...Since it was room temp when I reviewed I will give it a 4.5.
Impressive ale here that I will enjoy again and again.
