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.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Much better than anticipated. Moderate malt and grain aroma. Nice dark amber color with sustainable head. Heavy palate. The feel was weighty and almost creamy. Nice carbonation level. This was a cross between an amber and an alt with a good malty and bread backbone. Not much else, especially in the way of hops but it didn’t seem to need it. One of my new favorites among this brewery’s core products.

Bottle says 092614 (best before the 26 this month?) Appearance: Hazy dark ruby brown body that allows shadows through. Slim white head, and spotty lacing. Aroma: Slightly metallic and acrid. Faint caramel. Taste: Sweet caramel flavor that is very nice. A hint of alcohol in there. Palate: Light in body and moderately low carbonation. Clean finish. Overall: Pretty good beer. Nice and refreshing but not much flavor. Not one I would get excited to see on a shelf, but it was worth trying to see what beers are coming out of Alaska.

P00ours amber (duh). With nie amount of white head. Aroma is caramel and barley malts. Light refreshing body with a lot of sweet malty flavor. A pretty decent amber. Little to sweet.

Enjoyed at Sanford had a nice chat with the neighbor. Not my usual style but not bad, a little fruity.

fakebeersnob (151) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
This was not quite what I was expecting. It has a smoothness, malty, breadlike quality. There are very mild hops in it - not bitter, but enough that is present. The head quickly disappears leaving a brown-copper color...like a dirty penny. Thin lacing. There is a sweetness to it too. Not a complex beer, but an easy drinking beer. Unsure if I would buy again, but I think this is one where if I am at a gathering without glasses, I could grab this and drink from the bottle. Sometimes you need beer like this.

teemoney (60) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter. Amber-brown color with fizzy white head that quickly completely disappears. Smell is mostly sweet dark fruits. Taste is more of the same, with some bread mixed in. Kind of thin, and pretty fizzy. Overall, not bad. Good flavor balance. A little too carbonated for me, though.

generallee08 (680) - New York, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: The body has a very beautiful deep amber color with good clarity and lively carbonation flowing up the center of the glass. The quick pour made only a modest one finger tall head. This head was light tan in color and quick fading. This made for no lacing at all. Smell: The aroma is very inviting surprisingly fruity. It brings notes of dark bready maltiness with dark fruit, dark cherries, plums and apple peels. Taste / Palate: First up is a medium body mix of bready sweet maltiness blending with the same dark fruit notes from the the aroma. The finish adds notes of roasted almond and a mild balance of earthy dryness from hops. The palate feels smooth and somewhat slick.

Mibeersnob (46) - Howell, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Nice pouring ale. Rich amber, creamy head - two finger. Good aroma - toasty, grassy. Light taste, easy to drink. Light-medium bitterness, hops just come through. Smooth drinking, alcohol does not come through. Easy to drink a lot of.

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate toffee, lighter caramel, roasted nuts, and a touch of fruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet toffee, caramel, and a hint of brown sugar. The finish has light roasted nuts, toasty notes, and a hint of fruit. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation,
