3.38/5  rDev +2.7%

Clear amber color, head dissipates quickly; faint malt aroma; Medium to light body, slightly sparkly. A pleasant mild malty flavor. Drinkable, but nothing special. I'd call this beer alright.

The label on my bottle looks exactly like the one pictured here on BA as Fat Tire Amber Ale, except that it says "Belgian Style Ale" instead of "Amber Ale." I found Belgian Style Ale only by going to New Belgium Brewing and looking at their list. Is this new? or did they change the name? Are Fat Tire Amber Ale, Fat Tire Belgian Style Ale, and Belgian Style Ale all one and the same?

Tastes like a *slightly* concentrated Budweiser. Maybe if a bud had 15% less water.

Pretty good beer for some mass produced American companies version of a Belgian ale.. Not as much flavor as I would like for the style but it has all the right flavors, just weak..

Would drink again if I'm buying gas station beers or mix your Sixers.
