4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Who’d have thunk Alaskan Amber is a Northern German Altbier? Very true to style: in fact is part of the AHA calibration for this style. Aroma is nice, malty, and of munich malt. No diacetyl, very little hop character. Perfect appearance for the style: beautiful copper color, nice clarity, and well retained head. Flavor is a little on the sweet side and first, though seems to open up over time. I’d like to see a little more bitterness here. Low diacetyl, and a good, dry finish. Mouthfeel: medium-light body, medium-high carbonation, and a little alcoholic warmth. Overall, really enjoyed the appearance and mouthfeel. A very well done, easy to drink beer.

pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, biscuity. Tastes very nice. Caramel, sweet breads, malt. Mildly sweet finish. I’ve never been a big amber fan until now. This is now my personal benchmark for the style. Good beer!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Sweet honey aromas are noted with sweet berries and a light cinnamon, as well as a caramel malt note. It’s a deep oily clear amber with an off white, big puffy foam head that slowly dissipates to a good medium thick fuzzy ring and a dusty surface and an abundant soapy lace. The taste is medium malty sweet and medium light bitter. The beer is oily with a light foam carbonation. The medium body holds grass notes, honey, citrus, and light toffee. It finishes with citrus zest and spice and leaves an aftertaste of light molasses. It’s a bit cloying and astringent with notes of spice and bitter citrus membrane with wax and a touch of pine.
