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.

yngwie (14010) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
On tap. It’s a clear amber colored beer with a dense minimal sized light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is lightly fruity, with caramel and a faint roasted touch. It’s very soft and smooth on the palate, medium to full body. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, mostly towards the end, with caramel and some roasted hints. Long finish where the roasted malts are more evident than the caramel. Quite pleasant this one, and easy drinkable. 130819

Bottled. Amber red color, small white head. Some toffee and malts in the nose. Sweetish with pale malts in the background. Malty, sweetish aftertaste. Boring ...

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Er, candy. This is very candyish, cloying, bubblegum, there is just not a lot of nuance here. Amber colour. Not my thing at all.

argo0 (11635) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2002
Slightly hazy deep amber with minimal head. Sweet caramelly aroma, supplemented by sugar cane. The flavor has what the aroma suggests, plus a bit of spiciness so it’s not unbearably sweet. Minimal bitterness, but quite full bodied. Evokes Fuller’s.
