New Belgium Fat Tire Ale: I was at a charity event and my choices were Fat Tire, Corona, Coors Light and Bud. It did make me realize the Fat Tire is served everywhere, and therefore is no craft brew. Well, congratulations to New Belgium! You have made it big. I think the clever name is a key part of the success of this beer, now let's try the goods! The body is a deep amber with a good off white head and big malty aroma. It looks like a craft brew for sure. The flavor is mostly malt up front, and carries a lot of spice - I get nutmeg and cinnamon, throughout. Here comes the "flavorings" debate. OK, I do add lemon to my wheat beers, a big no-no for most of you. But here I am on the other side of the fence, the spicy flavors are not my cup of tea. To finish, the ubiquitous Fat Tire is a good beer, and probably begins the craft brew journey for many...
