Just an average beer. I miss all the hype? Flavor is so so and it leaves you looking for a finish. Overrated beer!

Excellent beer! Nice finish, color, and great flavor. One of my new favorites. I wish I could get it in my local pub

Draft. Thick foamy head, leaves a lasting skiff and nice lacing. Nice hops for an amber. Medium gold coour. Malt sweetness is balanced well with the hops. Excellent with dinner.

Rated Boulder Colorado July 31, 2003. Pleasing medium orange amber clear colour. Medium body. Malty tending to quality Brit pub style bitter flavours and aromas. Some unusual kinda Scotch Ale character . Finish and aftertaste also had a phenolic-rubbery feel to it.

Very light aroma, doughy. Creamy white head with excellent lacing. Clear amber color. Very light flavors: sweet/sour/bitter. Very dry and light-medium bodied. I guess this beer would be considered very "drinkable", but it is not my style.

Fat Tire is very good but had a woodsy aftertaste I wasn't expecting. Very good beer otherwise

Had this beer a hundred times, it's time to rate it. Floral hops come through in the aroma. Initial taste is bursting with hops, smoky, malty flavors. The beer looses some of its flavor after each taste. Aftertaste is lightly bitter, somewhat watery. Good entry level beer. It's always nice to see a Bud light 12-pack in somebodys hand, then a Fat Tire 6-pack in another. It's a start.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2004 Reddish copper color. Decent head. Hoppy aroma. Pretty decent. Easy to drink, can't understand why everyone loves this beer but doesn't love other hoppy beers, but I guess that's just me.
