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.

The name’s a little confusing (beyond a simple colour label) because this is an Alt rather than a classic Irish-style amber ale. However, the beer is a treat. It poured with a thin head but the aroma was light and invitingly fruity. The palate is sweet and oily, with fruity notes and a hint of spice in a smooth finish. Very easy to drink. Even better on tap, I imagine. A gem.

i’ve had this beer on tap and from a bottle. on tap is a bit creamier with less carbonation, but bottled is good too. this beer pours dark reddish-brown with a medium sized fluffy head. taste is mellow fruit with a fair share of maltiness. pretty well balanced with a pleasantly bitter finish and no nasty chemical aftertastes. cheers!

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2005
On tap. I really liked this beer, it has a unique sort of creamy-sweet taste like flowers and fruit. The taste seems to be one thing at first, and then there is a very odd but wonderufl aftertaste that lasts. Not very bitter if you’re into that, and not very thick, but definitely one of the better widely available american beers I’ve had.

Pours deep red with light brown/tan head. Nose is fairly malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Flavor continues with slightly fruity, malty well-balanced character. Finishes with a clean bitterness.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Bottle. Nice looking pour, light malty aroma. A malty, light bodied brew that would be a good session pick, but for me there is a middle taste, sort of metallic, that spoils the experience. Would like to try this one on draft and re-rate.

Nice amber color with nothing special and nothing offensive. A generaly tasty beer.

SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Small tiny head that goes flat quick. Brown and red hue that isn’t easily seen through. Very faint nose but has a soft floral aroma. Flavor is mostly caramel and honey. Well balance of malt and hops. Not as good as i thought it would be.

BeerRunner (144) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Bottled. A fine, reddish coloured bier with a lovely balance and delicious, toasty dark candy flavour. Tastes of spices, toffee,caramel and other such candies. Very good. Very well recommended indeed.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Bottle. Nice amber color. Good white head. Complex odors and flavors, with fruits, malts, and hops in good balance. Very nice taste. A far better than average offering.
