On tap at underground... Pours a clear amber with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel, toast, sweet pale malts and light floral hops. Taste is caramel, toast, biscuit and grassy hops. Overall an easy drinking amber but has a bit thin of a finish.

Bottle. Pours clear, brownish amber with very little head. Faint, musty aroma. Full, effervescent feel in the mouth. Fresh, grassy flavor, slight malty sweetness; finishes with a bit of astringency which gives it a nice balance.

Having lived in Boulder, CO--about thirty minutes from where the beer is brewed in Fort Collins--fat tire is one of the first craft brews that graced my palate.
After the initial first gulp the flavor that seems to overwhelm me I could only describe as "blood orange"--those bright red oranges you often find in the fancier grocery stores. Not excessively fruity, but a nice, flat, beer-like blood orange.
I also find myself thinking this tastes akin to Samuel Adams, which is a heavier lager, but this amber ale has a palate that resembles an ice cold sammy.
The nose is a faint version of the flavor, as with many brews.
All around good beer. Think I prefer a Samuel Adams though.

Had it once. Had it with a Philly cheese steak and I regret nothing. 7/10 would drink again.

Aroma is malty but kind of weak with a slight spice from hops. Pour is amber, of course, with a white cap. Some beatiful lacing. Medium body. Average carbonation. Flavor is quite rich with malt. Drinkability is high. This would be a great beer for a beer connoisseur or a light beer guy and everyone in between. Smooth and flavorful.

Love the flavor. Not too bitter, but just a touch. Smooth on the palate and slight brown nut on the nose

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Chilis, Houston Intl Airport, Terminal A. Amber color with little head. Head dissipates into a white film. Aroma is light, with some caramel malts present on the nose. Taste is spices, a little caramel malts with some toast present. Palate is thin, slightly carbonated. Overall, an underwhelming beer, but a solid session beer that is readily available. Will do in a pinch.

A decent amber ale. I could drink this regularly, though it isn’t extraordinary by any means. Quite tasty though.
