Pours a nice golden, slightly red color. Decent head and nice lacing. Smell is light with some malt and little hops. Taste is malt forward and light hops. Too much carbonation, almost burns going down. Not a great ale !!

A little toffee, a little cereal, a lot of nothing. Just a bad fat tire clone.

Pours a dark copper red body one-finger head and minor lace on top of a roasted, grainy malt aroma that doesn't profile much hops. The taste is the same as the beer is light, smooth, there are both grainy, dry malts along with touches of sweet malts (caramel) but the hops are subdued and barely noticeable in this beer. The lack of hops isn't a bad thing but just makes this beer one dimensional and it finishes light and bitterly bland.
