COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named in honor of our founder Jeff’s bike trip through Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer’s home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Jeff found the Belgian approach freeing. Upon his return, Jeff created Fat Tire and Abbey Belgian Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his big gun). He and his wife, Kim traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire’s appeal quickly became evident. People liked everything about it. Except the name. Fat Tire won fans is in its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness.

Aroma is super sweet, with caramel and bread notes up front. The taste is creamy and soft, and you get those amber ale notes that I’m not that fond of. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Lovely design on the can. Regardless, it is a very balanced beer, and if you like amber ale’s, go for it!

Bottle: A reddish gold with a small white head that leaves a light amount of lace. The malty aroma is balanced with a little bit of a bread taste but with a slight bitter finish.

Light golden color. Very light for an amber. More like a pale ale. Not very malty aroma. Metallic earthy slightly flowery aroma. Smooth pallate with that same earthy flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

atatum1234 (14) - Rogers, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Pours classic amber with a thin white head. Nose is hoppy. There is not much diversity in the nose. Possible pine in there too. Taste is hops and malt.. .bread and dough mostly. A tangy finish. Not really much of a beer to break apart. It does drink very easy and has more body than most daily drinking beers.

Burk från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med tjockt skum. Doftar lätt av citrus och kaka. Neutral beska med en lätt karamellsmak. Välbalanserad på gränsen till tråkig. Helt klart en neutral törstsläckare.
