A so-so experience. Everybody was saying how Fat Tire was all the rage, so I went into the taste test with high expectations. Smooth and balanced, mild malt and toned-down hops. It’s not a bad beer, it’s just not an exceptional one.

(draft) Very well-balanced ale, probably meant to be a copy of Newcastle Brown Ale, and it is a very good copy indeed. A little more malt than the Newcastle. Very drinkable.

Bottled. Pours amber with a small white head. Nose is malty and sweet with light toasted notes. Smells like faint Cinnamon Toast Crunch after it’s been sitting in milk. Taste is malty and somewhat rich. More light toasted notes and some sugary parts as well. Body is medium and smooth. Finishes with more toasty malt and light hops. Not too bad.

Pours clear amber with almost no head. Light sugary malt flavor. Nothing much to say about this... Average at best.

"Toasty malt flavors (sorta like biscuits just pulled from the oven coasting in equilibrium with crisp hoppiness. "
Try "ROTTED CROTCH". 12 oz. of this horrid sweaty wood was too much for 5 people. This is a complex beer in the way that smelling your clothes after a game of football can be. Blech!

Amber, small white head. Malty nose, bready flavor, fairly sweet, nutty, only a touch of bitterness. Overall lightly flavored, decent lawnmower brew.

One of my favorite beers. Complex and quite tasty. Beautiful beer to look at and the head is always abundant. It is crisp, yet smooth. A perfect beer to have with a meal or with a fine cigar.

Very light amber color, sugary cookie aroma, over the top sweetness, not much in way of hops, probaly a nice session beer, sweetness stays right to the end
