Overall Fat Tire brews a good amber ale. There isn't anything exceptional about this beer, but there isn't anything you can really complain about either. The flavor has the depth that you expect with a craft beer without anything extra. Almost like a good burger, it features the classic taste that you expect without anything extra that may set it apart.

On draft at Newsroom, Minneapolis.

Pale amber-tan with cratered white head.
Caramel spread on wheat toast with faint citrus.
Peanuts, wheat thins, a twist of lemon and fading toastiness to end.
Faint C-hop orange rind finish and clean tingly linger.
Light, crisp, slightest cling.

OK, it’s watery, there’s really no hops and it’s Crystal 20 at a push. There’s still just enough flavor to shock a BMC drinker. I wouldn’t stick with it myself, but I see where it makes sense.
