look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a...well...amber. Off-white head sticks around for a while.

S: Not too much here, some woodchips and caramel. No hops apparent in the nose.

T: Mild woody flavours. Some dark fruits and maybe a bit of mild apple tang? Overall everything is extremely muted and weak.

D: Good drinkability, but not complex enough to choose this over another beer.

Overall: Fat Tire is just...boring. It doesn't offend; it doesn't really do anything. It just delivers an unoffensive and weak-flavoured version of a style that isn't all that exciting (unless its all hopped to hell) to begin with.
