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.

Bottled. A fine, reddish coloured bier with a lovely balance and delicious, toasty dark candy flavour. Tastes of spices, toffee,caramel and other such candies. Very good. Very well recommended indeed.

12 ounce bottle from the sampler pack. Pretty nice looking amber beer with good carbonation. High viscosity through the use of caramel malts with low hop bitterness and no hop aroma. I do like the fact that this amber ale is not dry hopped, but if it is supposed to be similar to German Altbier, it is way off the mark. Nonetheless, a quite enjoyable amber ale which I think many people will find quite pleasant.

Toasty malt with slight caramel aroma. Pleasing autumn leaf color tending to fresh brewed ice tea. Flavor is balanced, smooth with a hint of maybe . . . butterscotch. The palate is both fizzy and a bit thick. This is an "old" standby for folks around here and deservedly so.

The Alaskan Amber has a much redder shade than I first thought. Most of the flavoring comes from the initial malty/hoppy taste but this beer also finishes with a mellow long after-taste

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with minimal white head. No lacing. Flavor is rich, malty with some dark breadiness. Excellent amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 Pours clear & copper, with very uneven and bubbling head, foaming away in the glass, slowly disappearing as I drink. Aroma of fruit compote, & toffee, not unlike many good English ales. First flavor notes are malts & caramel, leading to a moderate, slightly roasts (yum!) Some sips include a slightly papery flavor. Bitterness of medium length. Hops are on the subdued side. Very similar in flavor to Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Good drinking, but no epiphanies.

twelve ounce bottle pours red with white head, very very sweet for an alt beer I would think it needs to be a little dry but no. Nice use of hops and very drinkable at right temp

Not very hoppy in aroma or taste. Medium body with a soft palate. This beer is pretty good but has no great features. Generally, it is mild and easily forgotten.

Good smooth beer. Low carbonation, lending itself to great drinkability. Nice red copper appearance and sweet malt taste. Great hops in the finish, but I could have used a little more in the body of the beer. Great texture. Excellent beer overall.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a good size beige head. Flavor and aroma are much the same: sweet caramel, malts. Very light on both counts. Not bad.
