August 12th, 2012 - Apparently all my introductory Alaskan Brewery beers are the plain and boring brews that earn the company its money, and consequently, itís experimentation budget. I canít unfairly begrudge a brewery for balancing the books and making sure thereís enough discretionary funding left over to power the laboratories and pay the wages of the mad scientists and brewers who work there, but oftentimes the moneymaker beers are pretty insipid. Alaskanís Amber is less exciting than some of the beers with flair coming out of their brewery, but itís a bit better than your average core amber brew. I didnít have much of an opportunity to take in the nose, but the flavor is rich with apple, cotton candy, and a touch and delicately added bit of clove. The malt character is darker, and slightly richer, than what I was expecting, lending this brew a luxurious flavor layer without being over cloying or oversweetened. This could be a decent opening to a brewery centered tasting - sweet, mild, and whets the appetite for more Alaskan born beers.

Pours a slightly reddish-brown, with a thin, mottled, white head. Nose is malty with a hint of honey. Taste is nicely balanced with sweetness and hoppy bite. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

J_man (695) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 4, 2014
A slight woody, malty aroma from this crystal clear deep copper beer with an off-white head. Lightly sweet caramel with a touch of milk chocolate is the predominate flavor here. Nice herbaceous hop flavor to balance this. Thereís a very light nuttiness to this with some more woody notes. A well made, easy drinking amber and very food-friendly.
