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.

Rather sweet. I find it goes well with Seafood. I had a pint for breakfast while waiting for an early flight in Portland OR. Was nice. Pleasant sweetness on the tongue.

The white head lasted for a long time atop the copper body. That head allowed the aromas of light chocolate and a hint of floral hops to seep out. the flavor was munich malt first and foremost followed by slight chocolate notes, some esters and good balancing bitterness. the medium-light body went down smooth and made me sit back and enjoyed the harmonious balance of this beer.

Nice malty alt. Wonderful dark amber color. Sweet toffee malt kept lively by the somewhat prickly carbonation. I thought it was going to veer into overly sweet territory, but a nice dry hoppyness kept it in check and provided only enought balance - I wouldn't want this any hoppier for the style. (thanks jsquire)

The beer I'm always asked about. I finally had a pint out in CA. I have to agree with the majority of the people I've talked to...it is very good. A nice malty sweet nose, good rich mouthfeel. I am very impressed. Reminds me of a Full Sail Amber

Significant disappointment. It was very light in the nose and the finish. It's look was better than it's bite (or lack thereof). Very light hops, very light finish, sweet and uneventful. Probably the last six-pack of the stuff I buy.

Certainly enjoyable, but rather plain. For being billed as a mega-malty beer, this didn't meet expectations. It certainly went well with Thai food, although I don't think I'd seek it out. One thing I noticed is that each time, after tasting it and swallowing it, it developed this crescendo of, for lack of better words, an acidic burn that was somewhat citric in nature. Weird.

Amber color with reddish tones and pretty much no head on this beer. Aroma was very low, just a little malt aroma. The flavor has malty sweetness and a slight alcohol flavor. The palate is mile yet the aftertaste is satisfying. Medium bodied beer that is a staple for West Coasters.

Malt over hops as it should be, malt aroma is to mild as is the flavor. The body is about right. Overall a boring beer but a good one
