not a bad amber for an alt style, I’d recomend Widmer’s Alt but you can only get it at there public house. decent taste but not as flavorful as I was expecting, kinda fuit with a consentrated malt body, this beer needs some hops, pronto.

Pours amber, no way! with a small white head. Very fruity taste and aroma, with a malty kick at the start, i really like the german alt malt style of this. Medium mouthfeel, with a lightly hopped finish. Decent amber.

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

Delicious beer that might take some getting used to, as the alt style isn’t 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.

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.
