COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,33 bottle at a hotel bar in detroit - Powerful malty aroma with slight caramel and breadcrust. The flavor is also quite malt forward with a firm maltyness. Toasted bread. Quite crisp with a balanced finish and slight noble hops.

Eructoblaster (3757) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at The Pub - Monte Carlo (Las Vegas, NV). Limpid amber body with an average, white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with woody hints. Taste is slightly dominated by malty flavors. It carries hoppy, woody, and nutty notes. Ends with a good woody finish. Not bad.

Aroma is rather weak. Notes of malt and caramel in the nose. Taste of caramel and sweet malt. Balanced by hops so it’s not too sweet Good beer
