Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. ENJOY BY: 15FEB15.

Look: Pours a light copper with a soft white head and bright carbonation.

Smell: Aroma of light bready malts with a touch of grassy Euro hop aroma.

Taste: Nutty brown ale flavor. Caramel malts and grassy hop taste.

Feel: Light and refreshing, not strong or overpowering.

Overall: A light, easy drinker. Not a standout, but pleasant. Fat Tire is a not as hoppy as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or ubiquitous as Sam Adams Boston Lager, but a gateway into craft beer for many nonetheless.
