Named in honor of our founder Jeffs bike trip through Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineers 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 Tires 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.

Draft Pint in March 2015 - Amber in colour. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Fruity; slight fruitiness. Hoppy; very little hops. Sweet malty and slightly fruity throughout. A pleasant enough easy drinking amber ale. (2015-03)

Maris (1481) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 29/12/2015. Pours a deep golden with a small head. The nose is sweet with toffee and butterscotch featuring. The flavour is malty, with more toffee and caramel, butterscotch, and some biscuit and nuts, followed by a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A slight but enjoyable brew.

circinus (299) - SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2016
Can 33 cl from Systembolaget. Clear amber/orange with a offwhite thin head. Fudge, butterscotch, vanilla, hints of orange. Creamy, mild sweetness. Light/medium body, low/medium carbonation, creamy finish. Interesting, and nice with these aromas without the overly sweet taste that other similar beers can have.

Franzen (569) - SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2016
Bit nutty (macademia) and creamy aroma with some butterscotch. Not as sweet as expected from aroma, it has a nice breadiness and background bitterness. Bit creamy texture. It is kind of mild in aroma and taste which can be nice sometimes. In the finish I get some taste of malt grains

DeanF (2418) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2016
Good offwhite head and brownish body, bit of fog. I like fog. Makes me feel funky. Speaking of funk, there is a lot of it on the nose along with hazelnut malts and some weird grass hops combination that I aint really jivin with. Flavour is a bit of malt on a weak palate. Needs more kick to make it interesting. Right now its just a boring new world beer.

jjsint (2889) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Can from some shop or other in Seminole. Light brown/amber, clear, a bit of off-white head. Resinous notes with light stone fruit. Sweet and malty but very muted noncommittal taste. Short finish. Oily body with fairly low carbonation. Bit if resin and earthy hop in the aftertaste. I want more, more, more. This just isnt doing it for me.
