River Brew Review: New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale

Location: Fly Tying Bench
Beer: New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale

This weekend we are heading out for a big weekend of bull trouting and we needed flies. Lots and lots of flies. That means that we had to spend some time at the fly tying bench.

Mirco mayflies, midges, pheasant tails, gigantic ridiculous streamers, we tied them all. And to put in that huge tying sesh we needed a bit of refreshment. Nothing goes with a long night behind the vise like New Belgium’s Fat Tire Amber Ale.

The beer is incredibly drinkable and just the thing that you need to keep you satiated while creating the biggest baddest streamers anyone has ever seen.

We tied we drank, we tied we drank. Fat Tire is just the thing, drinkable and delicious, if you want a beer that you can relax and enjoy over and over again give it a try!

Appearance: A very light amber color. Crystal clear with very little head

Smell: Slightly sweet with a fruity floral scent, a bit hoppy. Not overly powerful and very clear smelling

Taste/Mouthfeel: Very bubbly on the tongue. Much like the smell, slightly sweet with a tinge of bitterness. Very drinkable.

Overall: This is a pretty standard amber. Really easy drinking and delicious. A good beer just about any time.
