look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

Drank it straight out of the bottle.

This beer smells like someone stale beer in a plastic cup from the party the night before.

Tastes like someone dropped a greasy wrench in the water then brewed the beer. I dread belching and having to taste it again.

Mouthfeel low carbonation, very little aftertaste; flat finish.

Drinkability: I can barely finish one. Even though it is 3 months before the exp. date, it seems flat and on the verge of getting skunky.

I bought the variety pack to try the various Fat Tire Ales and I am very disappointed with the amber ale.

1.18/5  rDev -67.1%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

Pours a orange copper color with a thick yellow white head and very little lacing. Smells of malt, a little hops, and a little vanilla and citrus in there. Tastes mostly of sweet malts, rotten eggs, or something that has spoiled. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Drinkability is poor.

Serving type: on-tap

I've tried to like this beer on many occasions, but I just can't. It was actually hard for me to finish my last one, and I'm not one to like the idea of struggling to finish ANY beer. It's just way too malty and soapy for my tastes. A shame, too, because I happen to like a lot of other New Belgium styles.
