Amber colored with white head. Aroma is that of yeast. Grainy smell. Watery mouth with no discernable flavor. Tastes like yeast. Really bland. I used to like Fat Tire when I couldn’t get it. Has it changed?

Light amber with a decent size white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt. Toasty malt more noticeable in the taste. Crisp hoppiness? Not a bad beer, but why all the fuss?

Chicago inaugural bottle. Pour amber with a little head. The aroma is malty and unappealing. Not much in the way of flavor either. Kinda blah.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 Rating #100. Decent amber ale. Pours a hazy orangish amber, with average head. Little on the nose other than malts...maybe some vegetables? Taste is malt, caramel and some hops, but not as much as I’d like.

A decent brew that can be purchased at most crappy bars. A malty flavor with a hand full of hops. Pretty standard drink in place of many other crappy micros.

Doesn’t suck but very one dimensional and watery. Mild malt and hints of caramel. Better than a Bud anyway. At least this is pretty drinkable tho very unimpressive.

A very tasty bitter beer, I have had better, way better but it’s pretty tasty none the less.

bottle-What flavor it had were full of malts. Didnt really taste like anything, thought it would be less malty and more hoppy, but I was wrong. Had a 6-pack to myself got done and wondered where it went. Average.

Boo hiss. This beer isn’t worthy of the hype, but for the few of you that mingle with girls, you know why this stuff exists. This stuff will make your gal nice and soupy but probably won’t render her unconscious like a night of kamikazes would. Kudos to the New Belgium Marketing Machine because this will make them enough cabbage to pump out some real gems like La Folie.
