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.

Decent craft ale. I’d buy it again as one I could enjoy when there is a limited selection.

Pours light brown, with fluffy whit head, aroma is sweet, caramel, grass. The flavor is earthy, caramel, and grassy. Taste like eroupen hops. Overall nothing great that stands out run of the mill.

bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother! Clear dark gold with a white head. Fruity aroma with some candy, toast, then old hops and ripe fruit like pear. Mild bitterness, mildly hoppy taste. Medium body, soft fizz, long and toasty finish.

Aromas of biscuit,honey, and caramel. Taste is biscuit, light caramel, and floral hops in the finish. I am also noticing a mineral water flavor throughout which I find distracting.

Och här faller ännu ett offer för medelklassfällan. Bra arom övergår i medelmåttig smak och får ett genomsnittligt betyg. Nu går vi vidare, öppnar en ny öl och sätter ett...medelbetyg.

Jokestereo (155) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2015
Pours dark clear amber with a thin line of white head. Aroma; Orange peels, vanilla, citrus and a touch of alcohol. It doesn’t smell that much to be honest or it might be I have a cold. Flavours; A little watery, vanilla, citrus and orange peels.
