I was on vacation down in North Carolina so I wanted to try the local beers I can't get back in PA. I've had the 1554 from the brewery before and liked it so I decided to try the very popular Fat Tire. I found it weird that a beer from Colorado was sold in North Carolina and not up in Pennsylvania. I had this beer yesterday 9/7/13.

A - I poured the bottle into a regular pint glass. There was a hint of amber red. As for most beers, this was not very opaque.

S - Not usually one for the smell of the beer but this beer smelt like fresh flowers on a warm spring day.

T - It tasted really good, but I noticed a weird aftertaste as the beer got warmer. Not sure what that was about.

M - Pretty standard in the mouth category. I’m not going to get fat tire flavored Listerine either, although beer flavored Listerine would be crazy cool.

Overall I am amused by it, but I'm not going to rush out of state to get it. If I saw it on draft somewhere I might try it, but I’m not going to pay more than domestics for it.
