UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Rather low on flavor but with some bready malts and a little bit of sweet fruit. Smooth and easy drinking.

From bottle. Drinkable. Nice aroma and good clear coloring. Not bad at all.

Ok beer no aroma what so ever. Mild front with a caramel malt finish. Definitely had more flavor years ago when fat tire was not over produced.

Transfer from BA review on 10-21-12-
Poured from bottle in to pint glass
Appearance – Pours a nice amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent level of lacing on the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of caramel and some light roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these are subtle hop aromas of citrus and a light herbal smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some of the bready and caramel flavors. These are quickly meet by a lighter fruit flavors of a sweeter citrus hop as well as some very light roasted notes. As the taste advances to the end a light herbal flavor come to the tongue and leave a sweet, light hop, and light roast flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the average side with a carbonation level that is slightly lighter than the average. Perhaps a bit more carbonation would have made it a bit more crisp and good for the fruit and herbal hops, but yet the not as good for the roasted flavors. It’s hard to say which would be better.
Overall – A good easy dining brew with some nice flavors. Quite tasty.

Fat tire. Ah. It is a pretty lame beer. I have never understood the appeal or popularity. It’s like craft beer for dummies. New Belgium makes many beers that are better.

Pours golden in color with a white head. Well balanced. Biscuity flavors and aromas.

The glass they gave away was better than the beer. The beer is an inoffensive Belgian amber. Nothing really wrong with it, but not one I would seek out.
