COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (2834) - 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.

Clear copper color white head. Enjoyable beer with a bit of hops. The background had some sour type of notes in the bitterness, not sure if its normal or a bad can, still a nice beer.

Habanero (4515) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2016
Tap. Clear amber body with an average off-white head. Aroma of fruity notes, nutty notes and a caramel trace. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry with a hint of bitterness. Light to medium bodied, watery texture. An OK but quite boring Amber. 🌟🌟🌟

TedE (1213) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2016
355ml bottle into shaker. Toffee fruit caramel nose. Bronze beer, steady fine carbonation, clingy frothy white head. Flat mouthfeel, oily texture. Taste is lightly burnt caramel. Finish has notes of doughnuts and dark caramel toffee. Really delicious.
