12 oz brown bottle

New Belgium Fat Tire poured a slightly hazy amber color producing a thin off-white head that fades quickly and left very thin lacing. The aroma is of light malt, bready and soft citrus, The taste is dominated by malt, is bready and has soft bitterness in the finish. Mouth feel is medium-light with an almost fizzy carbonation.

This is my second beer from New Belgium. I was impressed with their Trippel so I had high expectations for Fat Tire. Well, I am sorry to say I was a little disappointed with Fat Tire - still worth a try if you are a fan of the style.
