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.

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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle.
Pours a clear dark amber color with a large 2" head. Head settles slowly and leaves spotty lacing.
Aroma is sligty caramel, with some light graininess.
Body is light.
Flavor is lightly sweet, caramel, toffee with just a sint of hops to keep the sweeness in check.
Overall an easy drinking sesion beer.

Thanks to Buck Dich for this. Alts tend to be "middle-of-the-road", but this one has pizzazz. Pours deep copper with medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, cognac, slight brown sugar. Tastes malty, with caramel, toffee, slight honey and brown sugar, and some finishing hops. Extremely smooth palate. Fabulous. A top notch altbier.

Nice amber color.... the head is gone fairly fast. This beer is very sweet... light hops. This is a overall good beer. Especially if you like it a bit sweet.
