In this beer blog, we are going to get into a classic amber ale. I am talking about Fat Tire Amber Ale from New Belgium Brewery. If you have read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know New Belgium Brewery. Let us get into this Amber Ale.
It has a clear amber to red color to a constant white head. The aroma has a biscuits to caramel notes. The taste has a sweet malty, caramel, and biscuit notes with a dry malty aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:

Ending, I have slowly becoming a big fan of New Belgium Brewery. I love the story of Fat Tire Amber Ale. Co-founder using a fat tire bike to travel around Europe. I am not a huge fan of their Lips of Faith series but I will try them here and there. When comes to their everyday beers, I just find that they are really good. I am not a huge fan of amber and red ales. I love to try them and revisit them. This is a great amber ale. I am not a huge fan but I go back to now and then. I have told people if you have not had Fat Tire, go retry them. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
