3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated from notes taken on 7 April 2012 -- Pretty good aroma, appearance and mouthfeel. Taste almost seems like a combo of an American Amber and a German Alt. Interesting, drinks well.

Nice amber beer. Good appearance color. Real good overall with a good finish. A little lighter than I prefer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Clear, amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Hoppy aroma, slightly fruity, hints of pine. Taste is hoppy, slightly fruity, piney, cautious caramel malty basis. An unspectacular beer for all-day use.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours half a finger of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is grain, barnyard and old leather, in the best possible way. It has that "alt beer" smell.
The taste has a musty grain flavor, mild lemon bitterness and finishes on a slightly sweet note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It gets the "alt" style, but it’s not my favorite.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild aroma of malt. Dark amber colour, no head. A mild balanced taste I nuts and malt. A creamy feel no real palate.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My favorite from Alaskan, and a pretty solid example of an American Amber. The caramel malt is smooth on this, some toffee present as well. There is a good mouthfeel on this too, you know your drinking a red.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich amber. Aroma is malt and honey. Taste is malt, honey, light fruits. Drinkable but not too memorable.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Though the visual appearance and aroma were average (subtle malty aroma with hints of citrus), the beer was very flat and watery on the palate and the taste was much more of the same.
