First thing I noticed, right when I opened the bottle, was the smell. Very toasty and bready. A very aggressive smell. I even smell it on my hand. And I like it, right now Im not even drinking but just smelling the air around the glass. Sort of a yeasty toast but very pleasurable.
A nice pour. Im slow on the pour with my ales cause they give me pleasure when they fill the glass so i didnt get much of a head. Actually I was so entranced with the smell I wasnt paying much attention to pouring a head. There is bitterness in this brew, but more to the after taste then the taste. The toasty bitterness is both dry and satisfying. This brew doesnt "refresh" it "satisfys".
A lovely gold to swirl in the light, with a little bit of cloud and just enough carbonation. Now im getting a dry toasty after taste that probably shouldnt pleasure yet it does. I like it, I like it a lot.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Says best before 10/20/13
A: Poured an orange-amber color, with a white head that went away quickly.
S: I can smell carmel and toffee, as well as some bread notes.
T: Taste nutty and like biscuit. Toasted carmel flavors as well.
M: very carbonated. This is an easy drinking beer, but I would have preferred it to have a bit more body.
O: I enjoy Fat Tire, its not my favorite offering by New Belgium but it is very good, especially now that the weathers getting colder.
