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.

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!

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Sweet honey aromas are noted with sweet berries and a light cinnamon, as well as a caramel malt note. It’s a deep oily clear amber with an off white, big puffy foam head that slowly dissipates to a good medium thick fuzzy ring and a dusty surface and an abundant soapy lace. The taste is medium malty sweet and medium light bitter. The beer is oily with a light foam carbonation. The medium body holds grass notes, honey, citrus, and light toffee. It finishes with citrus zest and spice and leaves an aftertaste of light molasses. It’s a bit cloying and astringent with notes of spice and bitter citrus membrane with wax and a touch of pine.
