Appearance: Fat tire pours a copper color and is topped with ½” of white head that leaves the beer rather quickly.
Smell: The aroma of this beer is all malt with a little yeast in the background to add a little something.
Taste: The taste of fat tire is a lot like the aroma except that I don’t get any yeast or bread taste like there was in the aroma.
Mouthfeel: This beer is a medium bodied amber that is easy to drink and a great representation of what this style should be.

Fat Tire is a beer from New Belgium Brewery:

Pours an amber red, and produces a good sized head of foam. The smell is that of toffee, biscuits, and caramel. The taste is malty, bready, and reminds me a lot of a simply drinking a biscuit. The finish is semi-dry.

Drinkability: This is a solid beer which would pair well with a variety of foods. New Belgium made their name with Fat Tire, and it is certainly worthy of being a flag ship. I could drink more than one of these beers in a sitting.
