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.

Clear copper color with a moderate tan head. Sweet malt dominates the aroma. Hints of light fruit and mild hops. Light sweet pale malt dominate the tip of the palate. Light floral hops bitterness sweeps in quickly behind. Toffee take back the court in in the finish and shares it with some berries. A touch sweet for my kind of alt, but a very good brew non the less. Thanks to Faclonseye8 for setting me up with this one.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Nose and flavor of old apples, ashtray and boot. Big sour malts, sticky and overpoweing sour leather, tobacco and burnt maples. Not a good experience.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2004
On tap at the Skidmore Fountain open-air market in Portland, 7 August 2004. Wouldn’t have guessed it was an altbier, but that makes sense. The body was quite malty with layers of caramel and touches of toast, but grassy, spicy (almost peppery) hops provided a nice complement to the malts. Good stuff, even though it was served out of a plastic cup for $5.

Very nice flavor. Not heavy, just the right richness with a nice long aromatic aftertaste. Definitely Alt Style beer. Camping beer for sure. Good stuff.

On tap: Mahogany liquid, with a lasting rich creamy head. Nose of berries, reminds me of a Anchor product. Caramel malts, berries and some earth tones. Lighter mouth feel, slightly oily. Very enjoyable.

My favorite session beer. Perfectly balanced sweetness, bitterness, and maltiness. Too bad I have to fly 2000 miles to get it.

I’ve had an Alaskan amber shirt for almost 2 years now and I finally just now got to actually drink it. Obviously amber in color, moderately malty in aroma in taste, quite refreshing after a hard day fishing in Idaho.

IndianaRed (2382) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle pours a light amber with a small fizzy head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is a bit sweet and distinctly apple. The slightly fruity sweet flavor is ther as well. Lively carbonation and a dry hoppy finish. Pretty good and light enough to be quite refreshing.

a nice looking amber pour, it’s slightly sweet in nose and flavor. For a flagship, mass appeal beer, it’s pretty darn good. had it on draft at the brewery.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Roasted malt aroma with faint hops notes. Hazy reddish amber in color with particalia. Small, off-white ehad. Caramel malt flavor with solid alcohol presence. Highly carbonated. Some hops come through at mid bottle. Not ad. Not overly special, but no flaws and interesting.
