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.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 From a 12-oz. bottle, pours a medium reddish amber with a full head that only gradually subsides. Good lacing. Aroma of malt & some fruitiness. Initial full malt taste with a followup of moderate spicy hops. Exceedingly smooth, rich palate. A definite winner. I had to travel to Anchorage, AK to try this; no local retailers carry it.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a brilliant copper/red with a pillowy two fingers of eggshell head. The nose was sweet, grainy malts with a soft smattering of earthy, grassy hops. The taste began with a blast of malty sweetness with undercurrents of biscut and carmel qualities. In the middle there was a fruitness (berries, peaches, and oranges). The end was similar to the nose, with a mild earthy, grassy bitterness that does manage to balance the beer nicely. There isn’t anything special about this beer but not every beer needs to be “mind blowing.” Sometimes simple and tasty is all a beer needs to be. I’ll keep em’ on hand.

Great, great taste. Probably the best amber I’ve had. You can drink 5 of them, for better or for worse!

jimhilt (2451) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Pours a three-finger white head which quickly fades and leaves no lace. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nice clear, deep amber color. Nose is malty. Starts mellow and sweet, finishes smooth with a touch of hops. Very good Alt. $2.59 for a 12oz bottle from One Stop Oasis Las Vegas, NV.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Copper-toned with a healthy white head, this is a fairly decent alt. The aroma is a toasty caramel with some earthy hopping - well balanced. Very lively in the mouth, it’s got a rich toasted malt flavor with mild hop bitterness and some peppery spiciness. It’s got a crisp, dry finish. Well done.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2005
To my mind built in a lighter weight scotch ale style. No head retention, looks like cola. Not much happening smell wise. Starts off well in the mouth but falls away in the back half. Cola trait is offputting. (Crap note I know!).

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Dark Reddish orange brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Big malt and caramel aromatics. Caramel and crystal malt flavors, aligned with a slight toastiness. Finish is slightly ester fruity sweet, with a crispness of residual hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, but very clean and wieldy.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draught. Smokey deep, deep amber; could be called red. Nose is sugary malt and syrup. Sickly sweet with traces of biscuit and acetone. Medium bodied, thinner than I expected. Finishes sweet, watery, flabby. Hopless. Overall impression is of cola backwash. Lacks flavor, structure, and balance. They should make people drink this dreck on “fear factor”.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours clear red/abmer with a thin soapy white head. Aroma of light toffee, cookie malts, and some vegetable nuiances. Some chocolate, wood, brown bread crusts. A Smidgen of brown sugar. Toasty dry finish. Thin.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
Clear brown with a fuzzy, beige cover. Faint, fruity aroma with some raisin/currant and a touch of caramel. Raisiny malt flavour with very subtle hops. Alcoholic banana notes. Some low bittering and a little bit of a spicy bite from the malt(?). Medium body and low carbonation. Clean finish. Nothing remarkable.
