in the West, Fat Tire is known to everyone. New Belgium is slowly moving its way east, and this beer is leading the way. It is a classic amber with biscuit notes and a soft warming alcohol touch in the aroma and flavor. The hops aren't your typical citrus hops, but they are still refreshing and crisp. Perhaps what's best about this beer is that it has universal appeal to any and all beer drinkers. Even those who prefer incredibly complex Belgian ales are still more than happy to drink a Fat Tire.
