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.

yngwie (16507) - 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 ...

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Sweet toffee and caramel malt aroma. A touch of bread, sweet grape, and a little bit of red fruit. Maybe a hint of banana. Sweet malt and grape on the palate. Toffee malt, a little bit of toasted bread, and some red fruits. Minimal hoppiness, just a little bit of floral hop character.

Er, candy. This is very candyish, cloying, bubblegum, there is just not a lot of nuance here. Amber colour. Not my thing at all.
