COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle - Pours a nice copper color with little head or carbonation. Aroma is of caramely malt with just a slight hint of hops. Flavor is well balanced for the style and is of mildy roasted malt without the harsh bitterness of deeply roasted malt and, again, enough hops to balance the malt sweetness. A fairly good effort... reminds me of Otter Creek Copper Ale back home.

Reminds me a little of fat tire. Excellent aroma and color (dark copper). Not as malty as FT, but a little sweeter. The flavor lingers. A good beer, but a little pricey.

DYCSoccer17 (3479) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Draft at O’Briens in San Diego. Slightly caramel aroma with metallic hints. Slightly sweet notes in the nose as well. Transparent amber/mahogany color with virtually no head. Mildly sweet, sugary, creamy beer. Roasty and malted. Nice finish. Not extraordinary, but not poor either.

Lots of flavor but not real appealing to me. Fruity and sweet with a touch of heavy sugar. Tastes a bit heavy to me.

Thanks to Jsquire for sharing this at his house. Amber colored with a thin white head and some decent lacing. Sweet sugary fruity aroma with a hint of carmel. Carmels, sweet fruits and a touch of malts. Not too bad, I liked it.

Small amount of quick to disappear head. Beautiful amber coloring. You can taste the caramel. The malts are almost too much. Easy drinking, yet couldn’t have too many and certainly couldn’t drink quickly.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Tap@toad in a hole. Reddish orange body, hazy, off-white head; nice lacing. Lightly musky; malt-laden; caramel, honey, brown sugar, molasses; yeasty--baked bread; toasted grains on aroma. Light bodied with lots of foamy carbonation; fairly dry. Flavor is musky; sour fruits and rising dough; caramel malts, toffee, chocolate; finish is grains and lightly toasty. The body is WAY too light to have such foamy carbonation and while well designed, the beer is pretty plain.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Bottle. Large, white head with light aroma with hints of apple. Clear amber appearance. Decent start, with a light hoopiness with a strong touch of malt. Light bitter finish. Very drinkable and tasty.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 I could session beer this...but it didn’t take me back to Gemany. Not to much head. Decent amounts of malts on the nose. Not to much mouthfeel, I have a smoked porter, and i’m am looking forwrd to tasting that.

Nose has apple, pineapple, cherry, strawberry, dusty almost bocky malt. Flavor is soft fruitiness, strong rich malt, a bit of cola in the finish. I don’t remember liking any other alts this much.
