Fat Tire Amber Ale and Mistaken Identity

Meterman: So how did the Shire real life meet go?
Flavius: I have never met a bigger group of dysfunctional, whining pukes in my entire life.
M: I can't believe that.
F: All they did was whine about how they lost their jobs, homes, families and lives. They all kept saying their names even though they were wearing nametags. They also got really offended when I asked where the bar was.
M: You idiot, show some empathy and read the sign on the door. You walked into an AA meeting!
F: That explains why they never talked about cars or vacation packages.
M: That's AAA you dipshit. Triple A.

Fat Tire Amber Ale - New Belgium Brewing

Ratebeer 3.07 49th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

A very peculiar nose of green apples and vomit acidity. One can also pick up sweet malts, floral and yeast. This is a very drinkable pint; you can taste a nice bread/malt at the start. Soon after it is balanced with a slight hoppiness and bing cherries.

Aftertaste +1

It quickly fades away with a dry finish; similar to apple cider.

Alcohol 0 5.2%

Value +1

This is nice beer; I pick up a six-pack whenever I see it. I always order a pint if it is on tap.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Thanks to Shifty at the shire for pointing out my enhancement omission on original post. Obviously I spend the night alone in a darkened room without playing L4D this night.

Overall 5/10

This is above average beer, not superb. It has reached cult status in many areas of the world. Check out the company's website. They are doing great things with sustainability and the environment. I prefer their Mothership Belgian Wit.
