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.

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.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 11, 2004
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 (2328) - 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.

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2004
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.

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2004
This is nice and malty up front, it has a bit of hop flavor in the middle that adds a nice component to this beer. The hop flavor could be a bin more hearty though. The hops really assert themselves in the finish; it is spicy yet mild, and has a hint of minty character to it. The malt flavors are sweet, with notes of caramel and an accompanying lightly toasted note.

Deep amber. Poured with virtually no head. Smells like pretty typical amber brews. Smooth going down, but has a quite average/plain taste. Seems like they could have done a lot more with this one (especially since I’ve heard so many good things about the Alaskan brews).

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Bottle. Deep amber, tan head. Quite malty, a little earthy and caramelly, a bit of some earthy hops balanced it out nicely. Lighter to medium body, quite smooth and easy drinking. I’d probably drink again.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber with lasting head. Light caramel and hops aroma. Nice mouthfeel. Light caramel flavour with hop finish. Nice pub pint. Works everywhere that the Pale did not.
