I have been buying this brew since the late 90's. This was one of my first gateway craft beers, as it were. I have turned to Fat Tire when needing a sessionable yet flavorful beer. It's a great Amber Ale. Bitterness is balanced quite well with the sweetness. New Belgium knows what they are doing with this beer. It's a common, accepted beer staple in much of the Western States. It's a good balance and easy drinker, way above average adjunct lagers and other mass produced cereal beers. IMO, this brew has it's rightful place. A good quality brew for the craft beer beginner, or one looking for a quality easy drinker without having to sacrifice quality and taste. My first choice when camping in the Rockies around Monarch Pass in Colorado. A twelve pack of bottles amongst a warm camp fire soothes my soul.
