How did this compare to Fat Tire?

Hello. I brewed up a partial mash version of this recipe a couple months ago. It turned out quite well and has gotten pretty smooth after about 5-6 weeks in the bottle. The munich adds a little bit of sweetness and the biscuit comes through at the finish. It's been years since I've had a fat tire, so I can't really say how close of a clone this is, but this receipe turned out to be quite tasty and kind of reminds me of chimay blue. Here's my 5 gal. partial mash variation:

Munich 800g (1.75lb)
Pale 2-row 800g (1.75lb)
Crystal (80L) 150g (1/3lb)
Victory 100g (~1/4lb)
Biscuit 75g (~3oz.)
Light DME 1500g (3.3lb) Late addition

Northern brewer 1oz (60min)

Nottingham ale yeast 1 pkg. (rehydrated)

Original gravity: 1.053
Final gravity: 1.012

Mashed grains for 60min. at 72C (162F)

Thanks for posting the recipe! I'd like to hear more opinions on how this recipe turned out.

This could be a stupid question but I was just wondering why this recipe calls for a 2 hour mash. Is it b/c the amount of munich in the grist? Just asking cuz im pressed for time today while making this one.
