Have had this plenty of times. Just getting around to reviewing it now
A- I used to think this was a dark beer, pours an average copper color with a light tan head that falls back quickly
S- Some malts and roasty notes. I don't know how to describe it, there is a specific "fat tire" scent here that I haven't experienced in any other beer
T- Nice amber malts but not much else. Rather 1 dimensional, but not awful
M- Pretty smooth which i like alot
O- Solid beer. Nothing crazy but can't go wrong here

12oz bottle served in a little hotel glass. ideal on that count but you have to do what you have to do sometimes. review from notes of 04/18/10.
pours a clear amber/orange tone with a frothy off-white head. a bit of patchy lacing is evident; middling retention. malt-forward nose with a bready, biscuit-y character to it and a touch of floral hops in the background. decent aroma, nothing extraordinary.
flavor mostly follows the nose. again, biscuity, bready malt with a few subtle, secondary hoppy notes... it does have a certain uniqueness to it. reasonably enjoyable; a solid B range beer. medium-light bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.
overall this is a solid if unspectacular offering. hits the spot when you're in vegas and low on options.
