12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Says best before 10/20/13

A: Poured an orange-amber color, with a white head that went away quickly.

S: I can smell carmel and toffee, as well as some bread notes.

T: Taste nutty and like biscuit. Toasted carmel flavors as well.

M: very carbonated. This is an easy drinking beer, but I would have preferred it to have a bit more body.

O: I enjoy Fat Tire, its not my favorite offering by New Belgium but it is very good, especially now that the weathers getting colder.

Pours clear amber with two fingers of white head. Some lacings. Aroma is like bread dough. Taste is yeasty sweet malts with enough earthy hops to balance the flavors. Mouthfeel is fine though a bit over carbonated. It has a slight bitter dry finish. I made the effort to find a fairly fresh example and was rewarded for my effort. I have had less stellar examples of this beer and can usually trace it to poorly stored or just plain old product. Not the best American Amber I've had but one of the most unique. Very sessionable if you enjoy the taste.
