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.

Very nice flavor. Not heavy, just the right richness with a nice long aromatic aftertaste. Definitely Alt Style beer. Camping beer for sure. Good stuff.

On tap: Mahogany liquid, with a lasting rich creamy head. Nose of berries, reminds me of a Anchor product. Caramel malts, berries and some earth tones. Lighter mouth feel, slightly oily. Very enjoyable.

My favorite session beer. Perfectly balanced sweetness, bitterness, and maltiness. Too bad I have to fly 2000 miles to get it.

I’ve had an Alaskan amber shirt for almost 2 years now and I finally just now got to actually drink it. Obviously amber in color, moderately malty in aroma in taste, quite refreshing after a hard day fishing in Idaho.

Bottle pours a light amber with a small fizzy head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is a bit sweet and distinctly apple. The slightly fruity sweet flavor is ther as well. Lively carbonation and a dry hoppy finish. Pretty good and light enough to be quite refreshing.

a nice looking amber pour, it’s slightly sweet in nose and flavor. For a flagship, mass appeal beer, it’s pretty darn good. had it on draft at the brewery.

ElGaucho (2299) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Roasted malt aroma with faint hops notes. Hazy reddish amber in color with particalia. Small, off-white ehad. Caramel malt flavor with solid alcohol presence. Highly carbonated. Some hops come through at mid bottle. Not ad. Not overly special, but no flaws and interesting.

Overall a great _easy_ drinking brew on a hot day (when Ice cold). Nothing here to challange the Pallete or expand the tasting abilities of the drinker, but nothing offensive either. A great alternative to the Buds and Coors of the world.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2004 Deep amber beer with a malty aroma. Flavor is heavy in caramel and toasted malt. Although on the sweet side, bitterness balances it out pretty well.

Good smooth beer. Low carbonation, lending itself to great drinkability. Nice red copper appearance and sweet malt taste. Great hops in the finish, but I could have used a little more in the body of the beer. Great texture. Excellent beer overall.
