3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Not really much of a scent, only thing there is a slight yeast smell that I canít quite put my finger on. Itís the textbook definition of the color amber (being an "amber ale" and all). Very light caramel malt, very light hop scent, not very flavorful but not in a bad way. Thereís a slight fruitiness at the end that I canít quite figure out but itís very, VERY mild, much like the rest of the beer. A solid beer but nothing extraordinary.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Bready malt aromas with hints of fresh dough.
Appearance: Clear light amber with light tan head.
Taste: Light sweetness with hints of bitterness at the edges.
Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, odd finish.
Overall: Itís good, but has a slightly funky aftertaste. Very drinkable, but a bit off putting in the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 On draft. Copper color. A biscuity taste with a very small aftertaste. The beer had almost no head. A good beer to sip on with friends, but not something I would consistently drink.

Draft. Not for me. Nothing to it. A tiny bit of malt is all I get. Iíve had good things from them but this is weak.

What a complete dissapointment for a beer Iíve heard novices talk about for years. Itís nothing but some odd amalgamation of caramel and Belgian yeast. I would rather be drinking a Yuengling amber, probably made with very similar ingredients. As Fat Tireís flagship beer, Iím not impressed; luckily, I know they have better offerings.

Draft pour amber. Nose mostly caramel malt. Some vague fruity sweetness. Taste sweet malt, grape like fruit sweet, then all malt. Not as good as I remember it from the past. Fruit flavors seem more pronounced in draft than in the bottle

Sweet honey aroma. Taste of caramel, bread, and orange fruit zest. Odd composition/balance of flavors, the sweet transforming into a quite bitter finish.

On tap at Dan's. The pour is a reddish gold color, with a white ring of head and minimal lace. There isn't much going on in the nose. A little caramel, some light malt, and a smidge of hops. The flavor is very much the same. I remember having this beer in the past, but I also remember it having a little more going on. This is just somewhat bland, and uninteresting. The mouth feel is a little thin, and there is just a slight lingering of aftertaste.
