This beer is your typical amber ale, softer on the palate and not too bitter in taste. An average brown beer, Fat Tire will give you a gentle kick but leave your palate crisp, just like a good ale should. Goes great with a casual meal, and doesn't leave you screwed over the next day. Definitely a daily pint, this amber ale makes one experience the flavors of the beer without a wicked hangover, and it won't dehydrate like a super-hoppy brew. If you find this around, and enjoy a good American brew at lunch, I would surely recommend it!

I love fat tire. It is my go to beer and always will be. It was the first real beer I ever drank. It goes well with pizza and even cheese. You can drink it all day. It tastes much better poured than out of the bottle or can. I cannot get enough of this beer.

smooth and refreshing mildly fruit flavor, lite and crisp, could be an everyday drinker for me, hint of sweetness, very good overall
