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.

hfmejias (1273) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2015
On tap @ The Hickory Lodge (Worthington, MN). Poured amber in color, clear, medium off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of malts and caramel combined with fruits. Taste is sweet and malty, nutty, and grain, some hops for good measure. Very easy to drink, quite enjoyable.

Draft - Nice Amber color. Good malt sweetness but overly so. There is a nice hop bitterness to cut the sweetness almost perfectly. After the brewery tour the BBQ style of fermentation (low and slow) really helps balance out the flavor profile and nudge that alcohol percentage up.

12 ounce bottle from the sampler pack. Pretty nice looking amber beer with good carbonation. High viscosity through the use of caramel malts with low hop bitterness and no hop aroma. I do like the fact that this amber ale is not dry hopped, but if it is supposed to be similar to German Altbier, it is way off the mark. Nonetheless, a quite enjoyable amber ale which I think many people will find quite pleasant.
