3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The sniff has a floral aroma, not strong. Slight smell of wet leaves and very faint alcohol scent. Very nice coating on glass, with milky head sticking around glass and floating completely over the liquid. The taste is mostly malty. Fresh biscuits with crisp finish. Very little hop flavor, maybe corn added. Taste is sweet and not bitter or sour. Smooth mouthfeel, very little carbonation as expected from this type of ale. Not a bad beer that is becoming more mainstream especially price wise for a case at Costco.

Bottle. Golden amber pour with a pillowy beige head. Caramel and a bit of fruit notes. Kind of watery. Not a bad flavour, but I was expecting more.

Bottle pour. Clear light copper with decent head. Toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Sweet slightly toasted malt taste with a light sweet aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing special.

I remember enjoying fat tire, but had one recently and was not to impressed. Kind of basic tasting with a syrupy malt presence.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good brew but kinda basic.
Appearance: filtered, see through, brown colour. Finger and a half of smooth off white head. Moderate carbonation.
Smell: Huge biscuit malt scent, strong caramel backbone, and well blended hops.
Taste: Identical to the aroma. Biscuit malt, caramel, and a bitter hop after taste.
Mouthfeel: Lacklustre. Carbonation bite on the tip of the tongue, medium to light body, with a somewhat dry finish... but not really.
Overall: Pretty standard beer. Not for those with adventure in their hearts, but more for those who want something simple to chill around the house with.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange brown with a creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and hops. Bitter hops and sour citrus to taste. I do not find this a sweet beer at all. Refreshing on a sunny patio but, sort of falls flat.

Fat Tire used to be impossible to get in Florida, but now it’s everywhere. I enjoyed it best on tap, but this is now a standby for everyday type drinking. It is a very balanced amber and has enough hoppyness to make it unique.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from tap to glass. Amber hue with off white head. Aroma is honey, caramel, Belgian esters, grain. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with estery following and a nice CO2 crispness in the finish. Overall this is a great mainstay beer.
