Poured an off red to orangish coloring that seemed a bit diluted. Tons of carbonation the head was light and fleeting.

The scent was a sweet, malty tone with a bit of a bready, cereal texture. Not very strong in the nose.

The taste is of light malts with some roasted flavor. Light cereal, bread or biscuit notes. Very smooth very light on the tongue it's easy to drink.

I've been drinking Fat Tire for 20 years and its simply my opinion that its being watered down as a cost saver. It's a shame, as this was once a robust and rich amber.

Beautiful and very drinkable brew. Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Holds a small head throughout. Clear gold color. Pleasant bread smell. Faint hop taste -- not for the hop nuts. Great feel in the mouth -- might consider it as a mouthwash. I love this beer.
