3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear light copper with an average (1-2 finger) foamy white head that diminished in a few minutes and had OK lacing.
The aroma was of a biscuit malt, a mild herbal hop and a doughy yeast with mild hint of citrus, caramel and was a little nutty.
The taste was lightly malty with a hint of caramel in the beginning and took on a very light bitter and crisp flavor with a small citrus note at the end. The flavor faded rather quickly after the swallow leaving almost nothing behind.
Mouthfeel was just a bit above light in body and creamy yet watery in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a decent tasting brew, nothing overly special but quite drinkable none the less. Would make a great session beer.

Nose initially hoppy. Flavour is predominantly malty,with good fruitiness and a hint of cinnamon like spice. Light and crisp, a bit like a ale/lager. Pale amber body. Easy drinking

Bubbly head. Fresh smell. Refreshing flavor with a solid malty body. A bit like a 50/50 lager/ale product with a bready finish.

Draught at ACBE. Surprising cinnamon cereals and strawberry flavors dominate, quite unusual, sweet finish. A bit of a disappointment, not what I’d expect from such a popular brewery.

33 cl systembolaget. En helt ok burköl men inte mer. Men denna kommer säkert att förekomma i någon bastu i sälen nästa vinter.

Tap at CBB. Finally rating this after all these years. Deep gold-amber, clear, low head. Malty nose, biscuits, caramel, a bit of grass. Sweet and malty, a bit of hops. Ok.

Artonhundratalets kanske största och mest tongivande poet, Charles Baudelaire, skrev en nidskrift vid namn "Arma Belgien". Kanske hade han fått ett något bättre intryck av kungariket om New Belgium Fat Tire serverades på ölsjappen (troligtvis inte eftersom han föredrog absint, den gamle fyllbulten). Allt det här var en skenmanöver för att slippa formulera ett eget omdöme. Om man ska smita undan från åligganden kan man åtminstone göra det på ett kreativt sätt.

A 12 fl oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 19th July 2015 and poured into a pint glass. It poured an extremely clear deep copper colour with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly. Slightly weak aromas, but there’s biscuit and bread like notes, slight caramel and also a touch of apple. Taste is quite similar to the aroma. I get biscuit malts, caramel and some apple juice. I’m not really getting that much hops. Medium bodied and medium to high carbonation. Overall this was decent and easy to drink but not amazing. I wouldn’t actively seek it, but if I could find a fresher bottle, I’d try it.

Fresh and hoppy, I've always loved this beer. It's great in a bottle or on draught, but don't let it get warm, or it gets bitter. Between this and Fraziskaner, I choose this every time; the flavor is fuller and well-rounded.l
