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.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Aroma is nice and malty with very little hops. Very little hops flavor as well, mostly just sweet. The body is thin which keeps it less filling. A decent beer for non beer drinking company.

Malt emphasis on the nose is almost raw like popping the can on a beer kit, while I find the sweetness on the palate a little too syrupy. I really donít get the hop bitterness from the description more of a dry grainy toasiness that you get from a Marzen. Drinkable but too sweet for my taste. Would probably work well with Alaskan food.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2003 A nice floral and carmelly aroma with a hint of brown sugar. The flavor compliments the smell. Sugary sweetness with a slightly numbing hop flavor. Not much of a finish that leaves your taste-buds quite quickly. The coloration is a beautiful amber color and a nice foamy head with little to nothing to complain about.

I really want to like this beer, but is just too sweet for me. Good amber color in the glass with a nice head on it. The flavor is well balanced, it just finishes too sweet for me.

argo0 (12298) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2002
Slightly hazy deep amber with minimal head. Sweet caramelly aroma, supplemented by sugar cane. The flavor has what the aroma suggests, plus a bit of spiciness so itís not unbearably sweet. Minimal bitterness, but quite full bodied. Evokes Fullerís.

The brewer seems to have a house character that I donít get along with that well...weíre kind of like fake friendly towards eachother. Sweet malting and not much more than that one-dimensionality is what I find. Oh, itís not bad, and in fact, I think itís pretty good...I just donít like it all that much.
