COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.

GreatDane1632 (372) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 14, 2014
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.

Idiosynkrasie (3815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
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.

Fatehunter (1219) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2014
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.

Luvystypotables (668) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2014
Mild aroma of malt. Dark amber colour, no head. A mild balanced taste I nuts and malt. A creamy feel no real palate.

TXBadger (1393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
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.

AdiBeer (1090) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Aroma: caramel malts, toffee, iron. Appearance: dark clear amber, medium creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: medium body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, sweet malty taste, short finish. Overall: nice Altbier, quite a nice sweet taste. Bottle from Drinks of the World Bern HB, Switzerland.

Doghair (257) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Mild malt aroma. Well balanced taste with hop flavor in the middle and more malt in the finish. Mildly bitter. Easy drinking. Nice.

tightslice (194) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours a rich amber. Aroma is malt and honey. Taste is malt, honey, light fruits. Drinkable but not too memorable.

ohpooratlas (43) - USA - APR 10, 2014
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.
