One of the first beers to achieve a cult-like status in the American craft-beer scene, Fat Tire is a well-made and well-balanced brew, without doubt, offering a rich malt core that's accented by notes of toasted biscuit, peanut skin and underripe apricot. It's medium bodied and easygoing in nature, with a subtle hop astringency that lends a light texture to the palate and a kiss of drying bitterness to the otherwise clean close.
