COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.

A real beauty. Has a great coloring, and a pretty good head. Goes down smooth, and is pretty sweet.

Excellent beer really liked it the first time I had it. It has a sweetness to it that is really pleasing.

Sits great on the palate. Looks nice and has a good boquet. A very decent all-around beer with no real outstanding qualities, but no really terrible qualities either. Pretty linear in character and a bit sweet but not bad.

Light carbonation with a quickly receding head. Nice crispness from the alt yeast, and pretty clean tasting, but I get some pear and sour apple as well. Solid, but hop presence is average, as is the beer as a whole.

Excellent pre-dinner beer, if on tap because the bottled version is nothing like the draft. Wonderful aftertaste that I cannot describe. Usually ask at a restaurant if they have it on tap, if not, we usually don’t return. (it’s that much of a great pre-dinner beer for me). I have found different batches taste different. Alaskan needs to pay attention to their consistency (or maybe that is their plan ?) If you find it on tap before dinner, Enjoy!

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2002
A well-balanced quality amber with established malting, though it has a tendency to be flat. Otherwise a smooth, lightly flavored beer.

This beer transcends all Ambers I have had. Being a lager fan at heart this amber has turned the tides for me.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 ReRate:bottle-Well, this brew was not like i remembered it to be. This was one of my first ratings, so it was not very strict. aroma full of malt, rasins, and more malt. Flavor was more of the same, but with pears and bananas. Old world barleywine mini? Apple cider finish-quite complex. No hops to speak of other than in the long part of the finish. Schell schmaltz alt is IMO better. This sample had a bad metallic mid section to it. Thanks to Buck_Dich for this one.

I found that I really enjoyed this beer with it’s smooth taste and mild hoppy taste.
