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.

I was surprised I never rated this. So I purchased a 6-pack at Ralph’s in Riverside, CA. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin, lingering white head. Nice, sweet malty aroma. Some hoppiness as well. Nice, well-balanced flavor. Citrus notes, as well as some sweet hops. Seems to get stronger as you drink it. A good beer I wish we had back east.

Thanks for the bottle, Dansting. Dark copper body with a quickly dissapting khaki head. The aroma is rich with some chocolate, oranges and good bread. The taste is The taste is sweet with some caramel and iced tea. There is also some light chocolate. There gets to be a stronger cocoa note as you drink this. A nice chane of pace, but a little sweet for me.

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and caramel brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of sweet malty bready . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a palate and a very mild bock aftertaste. Its flavor contained sweet malt mild cherry notes. Strange.

This is a better than average amber ale. I liked it, it is a little heavy.

Drank from the bottle in Anchorage. Dark amber colored, with an extremely small head. Tasted great, particularly on a cold Alaska day.

12 oz bottle. Poured a dark copper, thin off-white head, torrents of rising carbonation. Strong malty nose with perfumy hops in the background. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a lightly bitter finish. Very well balanced. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very drinkable nicely balanced Alt. Good intro beer to those new to the sport.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2006 On tap. Decided to finally give it a try, and I was glad I did. Enjoyed from first sip to the end of my second 25oz mug. Don’t know why I waited so long to give it a try. Very smooth flavor, sweet, but not overly so. More malty than hoppy, but that was a good thing. Great beer.

(bottle) Deep amber color. Head fades immediately. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malt with caramel, some nuttiness. A bit lacking in hops for the finish.
