Bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- A really nice clear amber-to-copper color, with a 2-finger creamy off-white head. Great lacing on the glass.

Aroma- Grains, slightly sweet malts, a little toast. I don't get much hops at all, but I poured it at 40F. Grape nuts.

Flavor- More grains, some "mineraliness." Biscuit.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, medium carbonation.

As unique as I think that this beer is, I think that New Belgium has some much better offerings.

Slightly cloudy appearance with a uniquely sweet aroma. Smooth taste with a fruity finish.

Very easy to drink and has no negative aspects. Particularly enjoyed drinking the Fat Tire slowly and with a non-spicy meal such as fries.

Overall a solid daytime draft beer.

It smells like light malts, and some noble hops it seems. Sort of lemon-lime in character. I also get a very nostalgic raw/ being brewed smell of grains and hops. Something you only really smell when you are making beer. Also some nice caramelized malts. Not strong, but above average for its complexity.

A sweet malt flavor, very faint hop flavor coming through with a mild but satisfying hop bitterness. a slight cocoa taste at the very end. Reminds me of some of the nice Euro Lagers.

Definitely not something I am clambering for, but I can sure see why people like it so much. Solid.
