look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with a 1 1/2-2’ off white head that dissipates steadily leaving some lacing. Opaque amber color. Decent amount of carbonation.

Aroma: sweet grains and malt. A very bready, tasty smelling beer.

Mouthfeel: a pleasant, refreshing, watery body. Nearly as crisp as a lager or cream ale. Good hot weather beer. Semi-dry finish.

Flavor: Flavor is pleasant -- caramel sweet malt is the dominant flavor but there is some fruity hop characteristic that helps to balance it.

Overall: I really enjoy Fat Tire. It is a very good session ale that pairs well with food.

This is one of my favorite beers. Dark beer with good head. Has a definitive malt flavor. A plain and simple yet satisfying beer. The aroma can be deceiving as it gives off a bit of unpleasent aroma. The taste can be described as a nutty toasted bread flavor with a hint of apricot.
