A great change from the usual stuff. The aroma was light with some hints of toasted malt. The flavor was the best part although it died off pretty fast. It tasted malty with some nut flavoring. Definitley more body and flavor than most ambers I’ve had.

Creamy, malty body and light malt aroma. Nice amber color. A good easy drinker and something out of the ordinary.

Really good beer, perfect for the style of Alt. Rich amber color good malty brew, and finishes dry and slightly bitter from hops.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color, almost coppery, clear with lots of bubbles, and a compact white head that didn’t leave much lacing behind. Aroma is malty and very fruity, and I found it to be extremely pleasant. Flavor is very sweet, a bit of bitterness in the finish, but it doesn’t overpower the sweetness. Good balance between maltiness and the light fruity flavors, not much hoppiness. Mouthfeel is about right, but I thought its carbonation level was too high, I had bubbles crawling through my mouth. Overall, a respectable brew.

On tap enjoyed with friends. Pours out a deep amber with a thick head. Disappearing head left lots of lacing. Roasted maled flavor with a hint of hops. Refreshing and easy to drink.

This beer is brewed up in Alaska, where you can apparently see a glacier from the brewing company. Pretty cool visual. They also use a recipe from 1900 that Marcy (one of the owners) found. She did some digging and they used that (this) recipe in their flagship brew. I wasn’t blown away, but for a simple amber beer, I am impressed. Cheers to Alaskan on a good malty beverage.

Alaskan Amber is probably my favorite amber-style beer. Wonderfull flavor, without being overpowering. Good aroma, and very smooth.
