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.

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

bhensonb (12970) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Aroma of malt and a bit of candy. Coppery amber color with virtually no head. Starts with a slightly smoky malt which goes to malt which stays with malt. A bit of hop shows up, keeping it palatable. Good. Not a hophead ale, but good.

argo0 (12515) - 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.

12oz bottle-pours a disappearing off white head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-some light caramel, grain, faint spice-hops. Taste is medium malt-some light caramel, grain, equal flat/spice-hops. Nice for my taste a bit over hopped if I was rating to style. OK carbonation.
