I love this beer, they nailed it on taste/color/smell (in my opinion)
I've even brewed the knock-off/clone recipe of this, it comes close but still not it (I'm working to perfect that though)
the first time I ever had it was when I was visiting a friend in Fort Collins and I've been sold on it since
Great stuff (gave it a 4.5 because it doesn't beat the fresh taste as it was in F.C.CO)

This has been my staple for 5+ years now. I was introduced to Fat Tire by a family member when I moved to N.C. I was a Budweiser only drinker. Now I will try a lot of different beers, but I always come back to this one. Can't wait until the new brewery is built in Asheville so I can take a tour!
