COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Clear orange-amber color, really small quickly gone head. Light malt nose. Flavor starts sweet and buttery and finishes sweet, almost too sweet. Needs a touch of hop IMHO.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Pours a deep dark clear orange color. Sweet malty aroma, rich taste that ends slightly sweet. Much better than your average amber ale.

mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - MAY 15, 2003
(15May2003--12oz.bottle) Hmm, pretty disappointing. Thin, spongy head, mostly receding, uneven lace, limp carbonation. Deep copper color. Aromas of grape, yeast, and a pleasant, airy floral aroma. Limp body, not helped by the almost total lack of carbonation. Tangy hops, of the cheap macro-swill ilk. Starts with the nice malt profile + bubblegum of the Alaskan Winter Ale, but finishes bland. Pretty clean finish, at least.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Nice bronze body, with a light, off-white head, a pleasantly mild malt aroma, a good balance between the malt and hops, crisp and refreshing, and very smooth front to back. Pretty good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Pours a glowing copper with a light eggshell head. Soft pale malty aroma. Flavor is light, semi-sweet, and earthy. This is a good altbier that is well-balanced.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2003
Mahogany in color. Little head, malty nose. Light hops and slightly tart. Mild esters in the finish. Smooth, nothing spectacular.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Fairly sweet malt flavor with a fitting medium body. Very smooth. Copper color is pleasant.
