look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: light amber red color with a 1 inch head. Some bubbles but not too much carbonation
Aroma: bready malts with hints of toffee or caramel. Nice hops
Taste: pretty strong mart flavor- definitely tastes like bread malts- dry finish
Overall: The malts are a little too strong for me, but it is definitely very solid

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with a 1 1/2-2’ off white head that dissipates steadily leaving some lacing. Opaque amber color. Decent amount of carbonation.

Aroma: sweet grains and malt. A very bready, tasty smelling beer.

Mouthfeel: a pleasant, refreshing, watery body. Nearly as crisp as a lager or cream ale. Good hot weather beer. Semi-dry finish.

Flavor: Flavor is pleasant -- caramel sweet malt is the dominant flavor but there is some fruity hop characteristic that helps to balance it.

Overall: I really enjoy Fat Tire. It is a very good session ale that pairs well with food.
