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.

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).

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 (6045) - 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.

Slightly hazy, deep amber colour with a tan head. Nutty, malt aroma with lots of caramel. Smooth, buttery malt flavor with a bit of spice in the back of the throat. Minimal bitterness, full bodied.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2004
Wonderful malt aroma, clear amber color, smooth malt taste, little bit of a nut finish and a little bitter at the end. This was nice but when I had it in Alaska it was near top rated stuff

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Bottle pours deep amber with a quickly diminishing head and lively carbonation.   Lightly roasted malts greet the nose.   I get a grassy/oat tinge as well.   Immediate hop kick on first sip quickly giving way to a malty aftertaste.   A slight sweet grain flavor on finishing.   Lacks good lacing, fairly full bodied.   Tiz a good Alt.

This beer is some really good stuff. It is nice and smooth with a good aftertaste. I would definitely buy this again if I could get it here.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 This is a decent brew but nothing special to go out of your way for. Not much taste but is still beer

Hazy apperance, caramel flavor but with a weird metallic finish that I didn't care for at all. Very boring.
