COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

This is the closest commercial version of a Fat Tire clone I’ve ever tasted. Probably not a bad brew to clone for Two Bros. since it is a huge seller for New Belgian but not my favorite. I was hoping this was going to be closer to a Saison style by the marketing/description on the bottle but it’s way off. The aroma is has some barnyard characteristics but not right for the style. Flavor is malty with a tart end to the balance rather than hops as the label suggests. Don’t get me wrong...I like this better than Fat Tire but way to close for my taste.

pours copper/amber color with a large off-white head, aromas of fruit, caramel, but mostly malt, the taste is sweet and malty and caramel-like, not bad.

Ordered for the first time in Chicago as part of a sampler featuring Two Brothers products. Very wierd beer -- and I mean that in a bad way. Nice appearance, but the flavor was just odd. Someone else at my table thought that the after-taste had a cheese flavor to it. Not recommended.

Pour is a dark red with a tan head. Aroma is deffinatly carmel malts. Flavor is carmel and molasses with a nice hop touch to it. Very nice and complex.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Translucent and shiny brass in color with a few wisps for a head. Aroma is accentuated by grass, caramel, pine, melon and sweet sourdough. Hops are fairly discernable as well. Grass and cedar elements are first to the flavor forefront. Distant flavoring, but not watery, pulling out characteristics from caramel honey bread and corn fritters. Medium-bodied, bright and palatable. Could use more sprits and carbonation, not to mention an amplified countryside malt profile. Passive bitterness in the finish. One of the better beers from this brewery.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Color is standard: clear and golden. Very light and crisp; flavor fades fast. Seems like a good "sippable" beer or for the non-beer drinker.

Zeswaft (1627) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Pretty weird tasting brew. Smells kind of like a stout. The taste is funky. Like apples, stout, and wine mixed together.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Pours golden amber with ring of film. Big musty, woody, farmhouse aroma. Which is usually good just something is off here. Flavor very euro-lager/skunk. Just doesn’t cut it for me.

AmEricanbrew (6659) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 20, 2005
Nice clear dark amber with a light tan head. Mild smell of caramel and light roasted grains. Medium bodied . Decent taste of honey wheat bread. Finishes crisp and clean. Not bad.

Pours a clear amber color, similar to applejuice. small white head around the rim. Aroma is musty, apples caramel. Flavor is bitter dry start, moves into a sweet fruity body, caramel and toasted malt flavors. Very nice!
