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.

A great amber. This beer has great balance and flavor. It is very drinkable and is a delight on the palate.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper hue with a small head and some lacing. Sweet bread, caramel, floral, slighty fruity aroma. Sweet but a touch of hoppy bitterness kept it within balance, however the taste is sort of bland. Something appears to be missing from the way this beer used to taste. Once very enjoyable, now very average. Dry finish. Thin to medium-bodied.

A decent beer on tap. Decent head, mild flavors of malt, not as much hops as I think fit the style.

Bottled. Nice solid beer. I tend to find amber kind of boring. This one had a nice malty flavor too it.
