A - Pours a clear, filtered golden amber. Forms one finger of head which dissipates down to a film. Very minimal whispy lacing. S - Lightly sweet caramel, mild hops and an earthy garden aroma to it as well. T - Little sweetness, little pilsner, little hops and little bitter, very light and mild, well balanced, easy drinking. O - A nice sessionable drinking beer. V - Medium.

I always build up Fat Tire a bit much in my own mind, then am slightly disappointed with the actual result. Nice balanced rich flavor, but not at the level of some other Belgian Ales.

No surprise that this is so popular. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Not too anything - just great beer.

Always a good go-to beer. I enjoy smooth ambers. This beer has a little bitterness to it, however it is not overwhelming.

I've tried this a few times just to see if I would swing to the majority who apparently love it. Not a bad amber, and I certainly appreciate New Belgium's proclivity for incorporating varieties of hops in their brews; but for me, the hops doesn't balance out. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of hoppy brews (think of New Belgium's Ranger IPA for a hops-intensive experience). I am also a big fan of New Belgium in general, but I just don't see what all the fuss is about with Fat Tire - beyond nostalgia. Good brewery, but this selection is over-hyped in my view.

Love the way this brewery started out. Husband and wife starting it in there basement. Talk about "started from the bottom now we here". Great amber lightly hopped lots of body to this malt bomb. Pairs well with steak.

Slightly bitter, highly carbonated and very floral. I expected more, it's drinkable but not particularly good. Hop heads may enjoy it more, but I find it somewhat one dimensional and merely tolerable.
