An easy drinking, not too sweet, not too bitter amber ale, this beer has long been known as a “gateway beer” into the craft brewing world. With the classic bready notes, this American amber is not too hoppy, not too bitter, and just right.
After biking through Europe, New Belgium's co-founder created this brew to have all of the balance that an American Amber needed: Bready malt goodness perfectly balanced with American hops. And thus, the Fat Tire Amber Ale was born!

Style Profile Amber Ale is a term used to describe pale ale beers that are brewed using amber and crystal malts, which give them their characteristic amber color they are known for. They typically have a smooth finish and a less dominant hop profile (although there are exceptions). They're a great every-day beer that can be enjoyed at anytime and any season.
