Drank from the bottle in Anchorage. Dark amber colored, with an extremely small head. Tasted great, particularly on a cold Alaska day.

A little too sweet for my liking, though not an awful beer. Nice big head, good color just not a flavor I love, too sweet.

On tap. Pours a hazy coppery color with a medium tan head that dissipates fairly soon. The aroma is an attractive malt-citrus mix. There is a flavor of caramel with just a hint of roasted barley. The maltiness is not overpowering, and there is a nice balance with the hops, The brew has a nice, soft mouthfeel and smooth finish. Serve with blackened salmon.

First alt beer. Fruity in flavor with nice head. Surprised with how much malt this drink had. Wish I could find this someone on tap, that would be awesome, i’ll be sure to pick this one up again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with nice off-white head w/ good retention. Aroma is toasty and biscuity with a note of bittering hops. Flavor lives up to the aroma, bisquity and not overly sweet, enough hops to clean the palate. One of my favorite session beers.

12 oz. bottle....On sales $5.xx at bevmo. We cna’t get this where I live, so I wanted to try it! My frist impression was that this was a very hoppy amber! And that’s great! typical amber color, but not as sweet as some of the others mentioned. I would definately try this again.

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.
