Not a bad amber but not a remarkably good one either. Definitely a good fall back but I donít know if Iíd ever crave a Fat Tire. I dig the bike on the picture though. Good touch.

the first few times I had this beer, I really loved it but now I seem to be dissapointed with it. It just doesnít deliver like other amberís out there do. Very light palater, although I do agree with everyone else that it is very buttery.

Good draft beer. Nice malty flavor with a fine finish. Too bad we can not get it on the east side of the Mississippi.

Rather overrated. Not a bad beer. But not a good beer either.

Great toasty, candy maltiness with enough hop bite to keep it interesting. Caramel nose and flavor.

A bit light for an Amber. I prefer 90 Schilling, but when you can get this stuff fresh, there are few much better.

One of the butteryest beers Iíve ever had. Almost oily on the palate, but definately butter. Slight spice and apple. Failrly light and highly drinkable.

This beer has become a standard Amber in relative fashion. This beer has nothing wrong with it, there is just nothing spactuacular about it either. A very fine amber that will go with just about any food and is always a nice fall back when you need something everyone will like.
On draught I found this much more tailored to your typical bargoerís palate: always served cold, very carbonated and watery as all hell. Fat Tire is already the standard for beginner beer drinkers, but the draught seems to exist somewhere beyond this - the maltiness takes backseat to the water. And on a final note, I realize a tavern envioronment is neither the best place to drink a beer nor rate it, but this has even less aroma than Iím used to finding in my bar beers.
