Many thanks to chadzter for bringing this back from AK. Pours a very bubbly amber with copper tones, a medium sized frothy and foamy head, lined lacing. Aroma is yeast (sweat, dough), malt (straw, grain, meal) and grass, flowers, earth. Medium sweet caramel malt and grainy meal flavor, grassy yeast, fizzy and spicy hops, mild bitterness and acidity. Medium bodied and fizzy-spicy palate.

Can sample at Beer & Beyond. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, honey, toast, caramel, some fruitiness. Sweetish flavor, malty, toasty, with caramel and honey, a fruity note and a light bitterish note. Medium-bodied. Could use some more balancing bitterness, but quite alright.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another gift from the mother-in-law after an Alaskan cruise. The beer is a dark brownish but clear color with a medium and creamy beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is nicely malted and toasty. Medium-bodied and smooth, with malt, caramel and nut flavors in varying degrees. Light hop finish. Overall not the best Alt available but I was impressed enough that I would get it again.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not a good rendition of an altbier. It has an annoying bubblegum off-taste. Alaskan needs to bring better beers to WI.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A serviceable amber, passable beer. Enjoyed on tap at The Yard House, Scottsdale. A little sourness, which also gave it an edgy drinkability. A bit amber, a little lace.
