New Belgium's Fat Tire Amber Ale is a highly regarded example of the American amber ale style. This recipe is based on a clone recipe published in BYO magazine. New Belgium replaced this beer with Fat Tire Ale in 2023.

The recipe says the color should be 14 SRM, but the calculations come out lighter. It might be necessary to add about 0.5 to 1% roasted malt, chocolate malt, or carafa III would add enough color to reach 14 SRM.
