Fat Tire is new in these parts so I was anxious to give it a try; I found it a bit underwhelming. Nose is mostly malt as is the flavor profile. There's a touch of hoppiness to keep it honest, but it's not very prevalent, overtones of caramel - at least it's not overly sweet. It kind of reminded me of what a cross between Yuengling and SA Boston Lager might taste like. It's a well made beer, but I just find it kind of boring.
