COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name of this beer style comes from the German word “alt” meaning “old”. This refers to the aging that alts undergo since they ferment more slowly and at colder temperatures than most ales. Slow fermentation helps condition the flavors in Alaskan Amber, contributing to its overall balance and smoothness.

SDalkoholic (2314) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Small tiny head that goes flat quick. Brown and red hue that isn’t easily seen through. Very faint nose but has a soft floral aroma. Flavor is mostly caramel and honey. Well balance of malt and hops. Not as good as i thought it would be.

BeerRunner (144) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Bottled. A fine, reddish coloured bier with a lovely balance and delicious, toasty dark candy flavour. Tastes of spices, toffee,caramel and other such candies. Very good. Very well recommended indeed.

hayduke (4437) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Bottle. Nice amber color. Good white head. Complex odors and flavors, with fruits, malts, and hops in good balance. Very nice taste. A far better than average offering.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours a dark red color with small white head. Aroma is feint, of fruit and malt. Flavor is cherries, malt and hops. Palate is happy, beer is a decent one! Thanks to Indiana Red for this tasty brew!

Copper colored with a thin white head. Sweet; toffee and malt aroma. Lightly sweet malts, light fruitiness. Crisp hops balance out the finish.

Soutie (10) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Nice! I normally go for dark brews, so this one was quite a suprise. Spiced right and nicely balanced- colour was a golden-brown with a lasting fizz. Mouthfeel was a little thin. Easy to drink and nice all-round.

badgerben (4767) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 Burnt Beer Night: Amber color (I should hope so) with a thin head. Fruity aroma. Taste was fairly grainy along with some regular malt tastes. A little dry on the backside, but quite a tasty brew. Update: This time I found more maple in the aroma. The taste is still predominantly grainy, but has a hit of rye or pumpernickel.

Burnt Beer Night: Amber Coloring. Small Head. Sweet. Some Malt, But Tasted More Hops. A Little Dry... Good Average Brew
