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.

One of my favorite session beers. Amber pour with a thin white head, smooth palate and a balanced profile. Malts are sweet caramel and bready; hops are crisp and not too bitter.

Ordentliche Perlung, stabiler Schaum, in der Nase Malz. Im Trunk süß, Malz, etwas schwach. Hat für meinen Geschmack etwas zu wenig Charakter.

Boks 33cl på Solid. Aroma røsted malt, karamell, nøtter. Utseende klar gylden mot brun med offwhite skum. Smak karamell, vanilje, røsted malt. En mild og lettdrikkelig øl. ---

Sampled this for the first time, I was a bit disappointed with this one. It has a nice Amber color, malty scent, light carbonation. The taste is mostly rich roasty malt with a little bit of hop presence but not much. It has a very abrupt bitter finish that lacks much excitement. I would compare this to a Samuel Adams Boston lager but much less flavor and a lot more bitter. It wasn’t terrible, just hoping for more with reviews I’ve read on it.

Pours a copper color with a fair white head which lingers......aroma of bread, touch of caramel.....taste is biscuit, disappears quickly, fades to a rough bittering and quick finish.

Rich caramel color and very smooth taste. One of my favorite beers. I think one of the better ambers on the market. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing special, a typical beer that is similar to most typical amber ale's. -Box ��
