Old Review

This is my beer of choice when I visit friends in Texas because I have not been able to find it in Alabama.

Appearance is a light amber, almost orange presentation with good head retention.

Smell is a sweet bread with a hint of hops and malt.

Taste is a bit hoppy, but I am a fan of hops so it doesn't bother me.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Carbonation isn't bad and overall a good feel.

Drinkability is great. I usually go to Dallas during the summer months and this a good all around, refreshing beer. Doesn't get old and is not too heavy. Big fan.

Seems like you either love Fat Tire...or you don't. Pours a crystal clear amber color with some light brown hues through out. A good soft white head with great retention and lacing through the entire tasting.

To me, the nose is super nutty. The malt comes out with noticeable victory and biscuit aromas. Combined with a more herbal and earthy hop aroma and a light yeasty note, I get an almost almond type of thing going on.

The taste, yep nutty. The malt comes out a bit more with a graininess but the victory and biscuit notes really come out. Some buttery notes on the back end as well. But really, to me this is a nutty-esk beer. The hops are more assertive than what the nose indicates. Some noticeable willamette in the finish. A good balance between malt and hops.

The body is light. Easy enough to drink but the taste is off setting to me. To each his own.
