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.

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled into a handled mug. Leans on dry. White and a hint of sweet orange in the nose. Light citrus and pleasant malts in the taste. Medium body. Smooth. A drinkable go-to beer. I didn’t have this under idea circumstances, however, so I’d love to come back and try it again sometime.

12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma of caramel, bread, yeast. Amber brown color with three fingers of off-white head. Taste of bready caramel malt upfront, slightly fruity. Little or no hop influence. Light mouth feel, low carbonation on the tongue. Very smooth. A wonderful IPA alternative.

Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, deep, pinky red. Film of off white head. Fruity, toffee, light orange hop aroma. Drinks sweet, fruity, and smooth. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Finishes toffee sweet, with some spicy dryness. Ok.

BeerInHeaven (248) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2015
pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, biscuity. Tastes very nice. Caramel, sweet breads, malt. Mildly sweet finish. I’ve never been a big amber fan until now. This is now my personal benchmark for the style. Good beer!

Glass. Aroma isn't super strong. Nice Amber color to it. Very crisp and clean taste. Definitely recommend. Especially if you are a fan of amber beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
