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.

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.

Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2006
12 oz bottle. Copper-coloured body. Some caramel in aroma. Quite ordinary Belgium type amber without the typical brown sugar element. Harmonic and well balanced, easy drinkable everyday beer. The number-one beer in the San Francisco area these days, almost felt that this where easier to find at bars/restaurants than Budweiser. A positive trend.

wrxkaboom (17) - juneau, Alaska, USA - SEP 18, 2006
A decent offereing from New Beligum. A middle of the road amber color with a rather weak aroma. A very drinkable beer, but nothing to write home about

draft - Pours amber with a thin head. The aroma is mainly just malt. The flavor goes along with that, but has a decent hops balance going for it and the finish is pleasant enough. This is a decent session beer.

4.6
BRASTA (8) - USA - SEP 14, 2006 does not count
Lord a mercy. Pours like it is from the hand of Zeus. So good it makes me want to slap my caddy.
