COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is hands down my absolute favorite beer. The taste, bottle, smell, everything is amazing. Unfortunately I live in michigan so I don’t have access to this. My brother lives in oregon so when he comes home he brings it by the case, my whole family loves it. Wish I could drink this everyday.

One of my favorite beers. Solid taste, goes down smooth. Great for relaxing after a long day. Good in a bottle, better on tap.

22oz bottle poured a clear amber color with a nice head. The aroma was really toasty along with fresh biscuit and some light hopping. Taste was more of the same with too much toasted malt for the style. Overall a drinkable beer, but not close to the best.

ehh... its drinkable. light amber, yeasty smell but not too much yeast on the taste. Malt is prevalent at first, finishes a little bitter. Its not bad, but not that good either.

For some reason I thought this was going to be a belgian amber Pours light amber with medium carbonation and a medium off white head. Taste is toasted malt, some hops but not much. neutral yeast profile.

Seems to be a pretty popular, or at least common, beer out west. Not all that great though, but seems like a better option than the other stuff brewed in the rockies.

Seems quite light compared to the beers I have enjoyed. I like getting the big bottle I think it is 22oz. A pretty good choice overall.

Man, are y’all watching this Georgia-Colorado game? Anyway, this beer hits the spot...maybe a little underrated. Lots of malty goodness, and a touch of spice (or is that butter?). It’s a great beer, way above the league of most micro/macros.

beedman (60) - Wonju, SOUTH KOREA - SEP 20, 2006
12oz, best before 03NOV06. Pours with white foam head and light amber coloured body with light toasted biscuit and slight cheesy-like yeast aroma. Taste has prevalent biscutiness which is very unique and plesant. Overall, well balanced with a light hoppy finish, low bitterness. Nice beer to be enjoyed by itself.

12 oz. pours a nice amber body with a off white head.starts off malty sweet and finshes with a hoppy clean taste.
