bottle. Amber with small head. Light malt biscuit and caramel body with mild hops. There’s nothing wrong with this, but I don’t know why this would be anyone’s go-to beer.

I seriously can’t believe this is New Belgium’s flagship beer. Bitter, stale, basenent odor. Easily their worst brew.

Rating #1007 - February 26, 2014 - I know I’ve had this before (for sure in the Denver airport once upon a long ago) but here goes the review. $13.99 CAD for a 6 pack at Coop in one of the dumbest promotions to date (margin giveaway on a destination item, failing common sense 101). 5.2%. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong earthy, roasty aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch that is understated and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

Nästan Golden i färg. Lätt kolsyrad med ett skum som dog fort. Lite sur karamellig skumbanan.

22 ounce bottle, enjoy by date of March 30, 2014. It’s been quite a few years since I last had Fat Tire, so now that New Belgium distributes to Ohio I figured I’d pick up a bomber. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear orange/copper color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like toasted, caramel and bready malt, apples, and a bit of herbalness. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some peppery spice and nuts noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s well carbonated and easy to drink. I think it’s a good amber ale, I’d pick it up again if I was in the mood for this style of beer. $2.99 a bomber.

Mildly bready, not amber by any definition of the word, faint hops, light body, smooth and easy to drink but unremarkable

Solid good tasting amber ale. A hidden fridge filled with fat tire saved me from drinking bud on a wedding.
