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.

This tastes just like the golden pale, but with a bit more of a smoked finish. The aftertaste of this one as well as the pale, was horrible. I was expecting much more. I will have to try the stout before I put this brewery out of my sights.

Light copper color. Nicely balanced aroma of malt and fruity hops. Nicely hopped, bitterness carries into the palate. Just a touch of malty sweetness. Nice brew.

Probably my favorite beer. Definately the one I missed when I was outside of the great northwest. Wonderfully malty, comlex. Get flavors, of caramel, toffee, roasted malts, nuts, rich, nice sweetness, with just a hint of hops to finish off. Outstanding beer.

A little too sweet for my liking, though not an awful beer. Nice big head, good color just not a flavor I love, too sweet.

HH (165) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2002
Has everything going for it ’cept MY taste buds. I thought it finished way too sweet. Was barely able to choke down the whole bottle. IMO the Pale is a far better brew.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2002
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.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2002
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.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 30, 2002
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!
