The only other Fat Tire I've had before this one, was one "bootlegged" to Illinois. I will agree with some of the other reviewers in that this is a good beer when fresh. The nose is appealing with an exagerated malt aroma and a bit of toasted marshmallow; which gets me thinking of this as a great campfire beer. As very carbonated beer, I give my second pour of the bomber a good pour to release the bubbles, creating a very smooth mouthfeel and lasting head bright white foam. A medium bodied beer, Fat Tire is amber ale that accents its malt flavors more than the hops. This is definitely a beer for "malt heads" but not so much as to put off the newbie micro drinker. Definitely a good "beginners" craft beer with enough tasty toasted and caramelly maltiness to make this experience satisfactory, but a little too malty-sweet for me to enjoy more than a couple.
