The name of this beer style comes from the German word ďaltĒ meaning ďoldĒ. 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.

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.

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.

not a bad amber for an alt style, Iíd recomend Widmerís Alt but you can only get it at there public house. decent taste but not as flavorful as I was expecting, kinda fuit with a consentrated malt body, this beer needs some hops, pronto.

Pours amber, no way! with a small white head. Very fruity taste and aroma, with a malty kick at the start, i really like the german alt malt style of this. Medium mouthfeel, with a lightly hopped finish. Decent amber.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Iíve been hearing about Alaskan Amber for ages. It seems to be the "Fat Tire" of the Northwest. Lets see if the rumors are true. Deep Red. Very pleasant mulched apple aroma covering grapes, toasted grain and sweet malts. This is a very good Alt. The fruitiness comes abound first. Itís all over the palate and oh so pleasant. Caramel and sweet malts next. The finish makes you know itís an Alt beer. Itís crisp, clean, dry and nutty. The hops are minimal but balance this beer well. Iím very surprised with this offering. Nice stuff.

Had this at my brothers house. Goes down easy. Not too carbonated. Good taste.

Delicious beer that might take some getting used to, as the alt style isnít for everyone. A bit dry with some hoppy essence, but also a bit wheaty and with a hint of roasted corn. Almost no head on tap, but worth trying for sure. A standard summer beer for me; excellent with a BBQ.

Another gift from the mother-in-law after an Alaskan cruise. The beer is a dark brownish but clear color with a medium and creamy beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is nicely malted and toasty. Medium-bodied and smooth, with malt, caramel and nut flavors in varying degrees. Light hop finish. Overall not the best Alt available but I was impressed enough that I would get it again.
