Default Fat Tire Clone My @SS

I recently brewed up Flat Tire from Midwest Supplies, which was supposed to taste like Fat Tire, but unfortunately it tasted like crap!! I used the extract recipe but since then have moved onto all-grain. Are there any good all grain clones of Fat Tire that someone can direct me to?

Not to highjack the thread, but...

I was in Ft. Collins and did the brewery tour/tasting. It sucked there, too. But, I did buy a shirt because the logo is cool.

I made an extract clone of Fat Tire from Beer Captured; Yooper's recipe matches that one. I thought it was much better than the commercial Fat Tire *or* the Northern Brewer clone (which were pretty close to each other). Ours came out maltier and sweeter; it may not have been the same beer, but I'd make it again.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...

Sorry for the hyjack.......but

+1 on the Fat Tire flaming.

There was a bar in college that served FT in 6 liter steins. (Yes, 6 L is not a typo). Me an 4 buddies drained 3 of them just so we could go on the wall.
I didn't like it before that and needless to say......now the taste makes me ill.
