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.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Nice clear dark amber pour with a somewhat smallish light cream-color head. Malty aroma of caramel and biscuit. Flavor is predominantly malt, but not overly sweet. Mostly bready malt with some caramel sweetness and just a touch of nuttiness. Light mouthfeel and just a slightly dry finish. Not terribly complex, but quite easy drinking.

Malty and biscuity and nutty and nice taste. Light-to-medium body, soft bitterness and soft fizz, nutty and malty finish.

Eructoblaster (3709) - 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.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

DrNosha (1476) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 12, 2016
12oz Flasche. Klare rot-braune Farbe, flacher Schaum. Röstmalu und Karamell Aroma. Etwas süsser als ein deutsches Alt, aber nicht schlecht.

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

hockey9930 (242) - - MAR 21, 2016
Pours a clear dark orangish red with a thin fizzy head. Light malty aroma with hints of hay and honey. Sweet malty taste. Taste and aroma are both fairly weak and bland. Palate is watery. Not bad but boring.
