New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire Amber Ale

New Belgium Fat Tire Amber

Named in honor of our co-founder's bike trip through Europe, 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. Together with co-founder Kim Jordan, they traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness. Fat Tire: Pairs well with people.
Fat Tire pours a clear amber with white lacing. The aroma is sweet biscuity and caramel malts, subtle notes of fresh fennel and green apple. Fat Tire tastes of toasty malt, gentle sweetness, flash of fresh hop bitterness. The malt and hops are perfectly balanced.
