Good beer. If I remember right, it's been a prize winner for New Belguim Brewery. My very first brew was a Fat Tire from a kit. I now have a Fat Tire Clone in the primary ready to rack to secondary (my 8th brew.)

good amber ale. I've made a Fat Tire clone from Austin homebrew (www.austinhomebrew.com) that was very good

I like it as well. Very smooth beer, with a great taste. Very worthy of cloning.

Fat tire's my personal favorite beer, I've got my first clone in primary right now. I would definitely give it a try.

I also like Fat Tire. Very good taste. I made a clone but messed it up. Didn't taste anything like the original. May try it again.

I like it too. I have to give full credit to Fat Tire as being the beer that started turning my tastes toward craft beer instead of BMC.

I haven't had one in years, but I drank it back in the late 90's when it was all over Omaha.

I'm glad I found the clone recipe for it, even if it isn't right on it brings back pretty good taste memories. :rockin:

yeah, my roommate just brewed his fat tire brown ale clone yesterday. i also have never tasted it, but it smelled dang good. it seems like quite the popular beer to brew though, i'll try to look for it next time. :mug:

It recently became available in my area, so I grabbed one. It's good, it has a nutty flavor that I have never tasted in beer before. So, I'm brewing what I hope is a good clone of it Monday. :)

If you decide to brew a clone, I'd stay away from the recipes that feature Belgian yeasts. According to my local beer guru, New Belgium uses fairly traditional American Ale yeasts.

I'm drinking one now that was brewed with Belgian yeast...it tastes just like Fat Tire. Personally I don't think the yeast makes a great deal of difference with Fat Tire, because the bisquit malt flavor is so dominant.
