Sometimes I forgot I was drinking a Fat Tire and thought I was drinking a Coors Light. The only thing for me that stood out was the lacing which was pretty heavy. When I took a sniff I got flat decarbonated smells to go with a taste that matches coors. It felt flat and it didn't have much flavor. This is a very popular beer but I'm glad other people like it. Not something I'd buy again.
