22oz bottle to pint. Pours a crystal clear amber with about a finger of white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is caramel candy and some faint hops. Taste is sweet caramel malts and some crisp pils/euro-style hops at the end. Smooth, refreshing, and sessionable; this would make an ideal beginner beer, which I guess is why it’s the Wal-Mart craft beer. Would be an easy go-to everyday beer if it was just a little cheaper.

Can. Pours a deep golden body with a small offwhite head.
Aroma is light malty with hints of metal, grapefruit and resin. Taste is fairly balanced. Light bitter, with some soapy thing going. Fair enough, but won’t buy it again. Medium to light body, avg co2.

Clear notes of hops and freshness in the nose. Taste is with a hint of citrus and the hit of hops tickeling your tounge.

Named in honor of our founder Jeff’s bike trip through Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer’s home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Jeff found the Belgian approach freeing. Upon his return, Jeff created Fat Tire and Abbey Belgian Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his big gun). He and his wife, Kim traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire’s appeal quickly became evident. People liked everything about it. Except the name. Fat Tire won fans is in its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness.
