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.

Iíve been hearing about Alaskan Amber for ages. It seems to be the "Fat Tire" of the Northwest. Lets see if the rumors are true. Deep Red. Very pleasant mulched apple aroma covering grapes, toasted grain and sweet malts. This is a very good Alt. The fruitiness comes abound first. Itís all over the palate and oh so pleasant. Caramel and sweet malts next. The finish makes you know itís an Alt beer. Itís crisp, clean, dry and nutty. The hops are minimal but balance this beer well. Iím very surprised with this offering. Nice stuff.

Had this at my brothers house. Goes down easy. Not too carbonated. Good taste.

Delicious beer that might take some getting used to, as the alt style isnít for everyone. A bit dry with some hoppy essence, but also a bit wheaty and with a hint of roasted corn. Almost no head on tap, but worth trying for sure. A standard summer beer for me; excellent with a BBQ.

Dogbrick (7954) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Another gift from the mother-in-law after an Alaskan cruise. The beer is a dark brownish but clear color with a medium and creamy beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is nicely malted and toasty. Medium-bodied and smooth, with malt, caramel and nut flavors in varying degrees. Light hop finish. Overall not the best Alt available but I was impressed enough that I would get it again.

OldGrowth (2649) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Draft, from mini keg. Good nose, Malty. Apple/grape/carmel toffee. Nice orange amber color. Fruity bitter flavors. Carmel apples come to mind. Creamy smooth mouth feel. Mild hoppiness shows up on the finish. Good beer. Had this at Sandy Beach In Juneau as part of tour on beer cruise with folks from brewery.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2004
Orange amber body with smallish off white head. Sweet slightly toasty caramel in the aroma. The flavour is likewise, with a sweet maltiness supporting the caramel. Very sweet but not cloyingly so. Light but very smooth mouthfeel. My Mom went to Alaska and all I got was this tasty beer! :)

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Pours a copper color, with minimal head. Smells malty with a hint of hoppiness. Has a sour malty flavor. Has a lingering aftertaste that will not go away. I don't care for this too much.
