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.

Thanks to sdbruboy for this unexpected bonus!! A perfect session beer, minus the fact that it is brewed clear up in Alaska and we Midwesterners have no local distributors of it! Caramel and hoppy aroma, matched the taste. Balanced and refreshing. I’m still pissed at my friends for "accidentally" drinking my Alaskan Xmas beer last year!

Nice amber colour with a thin white head. Spicy aroma with some caramel malt with a vegetal and faint berry aroma. Crisp finish and seemed like a great session beer. Was served to me a bit too-cold and I did’t have time to warm it up. Can’t complain though since I got it for free when someone rang the bell in Haines, AK.

This is rich and creamy. Nice malt/hop balance. Roasted malt, carmel, toffee and nutty flavors. This is really good. Has a nice fresh baked bread quality about it. Overall, delicious indeed.

It’s every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. Hoppy, smooth warmer upper that is great. Again Buck Dich is my personal saviour!!! I’m very pleased with this trade.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 on tap: looked just like the picture to the left, however i dont think the head was that nice? served way too cold, killing what little nose and flavor this beer has. slightly hop nose and same slight hop/malt flavors. much like a fat tire. but maybe a notch above. somewhat thin. easy to drink and refreshing. expected a little more from this.

Sampled poolside, Sqway Valley Ski Resort May 2nd, 2004. 75 degrees in the shade. This beer has more flavor than in many ’amber’ beers. No head and non dimemo aftertaste are almost made up by the carmel apple maltiness of this brew.

Alright, what's the difference between and altbier and a bock? Malty and fruity with a slightly sour finish. Good enough that I ordered a second, but more out of lack of selection. Thought this was a bock (similiar but not as good as Dead Man's).

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 13, 2004
Pours a deep amber with a really nice head. Aromas are nutty and sweet with some anise in the background. A good firm body with some nice mild noble hop flavor. Great session beer.

BBB63 (6016) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2004
Deep amber hue with fizzy off-white disappearing head and no lace. The aroma has a large sweet caramel tone along with hazelnut, buttered biscuit, floral hops, and barnyard yeast esters. The taste starts with a plum like fruity tone and those sweet malts detected on the nose. A nice bitterness shines through more towards the midsection. Nutty and sweet final finish. The mouthfeel is moderately full and lively. An above average Amber Ale. If you like caramel malts, you will like this beer. Thanks JSquire for the brew.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 If i moved to alaska it would probably be because of this beer. Very good taste, and it is smooth. First beer i have had from alaskan brewing company and want more.
