Excellent beer really liked it the first time I had it. It has a sweetness to it that is really pleasing.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured with a beige, rocky head that dissapated into a thin layer after a minute. Deep reddish-amber color. Noticable spicy-citrusy hop bouquet and flavor with a mellow bitterness (Cascade?). Malty-caramelly nose with a hint of toasted grain; subtle alcohol. Medium bodied with a very slight astringency mid-palate to finish. Flavor starts with a malt sweetness that follows all the way to the finish; esters (fruitiness) emerge mid-palate and finishes with toasty notes and a yeasty-bready aftertaste. A nicely balanced brew; flavorful yet easy drinking and refreshing.

This is a very drinkable and enjoyable beer. The color is a great amber shade and the flavor is light, fruity and crisp. I keep this one available at home all the time.

Drank a few at 36,000 feet courtesy of Alaska Air. Poured well (for the situation). Certainly was a treat compared to other in flight options.

This is what I ask for when I want a "light" beer. Enjoyable, easy drinking, and quality.

Deep amber color, thin head with minimal lacing. Thin palate. Bready/yeasty aroma and slightly sweet flavor; hints of sourdough and caramel. Rich, satisfying, but somewhat heavy. Very good. [BM 12]

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Disclaimer: Bottle was transported across the country by plane, then sat in the back of the fridge for nearly a year.
Nose is thin with just a light malt character. Pours nice reddish copper with good head. Taste is very clean malt with very little hop character. Disappears quickly with a lingering sweetness. Very drinkable basic beer.

I am a fan of Amber beers and this one is a good one. Very similar to the Abita Amber i think. Had quite a few of these on my cruise ship.

Who’d have thunk Alaskan Amber is a Northern German Altbier? Very true to style: in fact is part of the AHA calibration for this style. Aroma is nice, malty, and of munich malt. No diacetyl, very little hop character. Perfect appearance for the style: beautiful copper color, nice clarity, and well retained head. Flavor is a little on the sweet side and first, though seems to open up over time. I’d like to see a little more bitterness here. Low diacetyl, and a good, dry finish. Mouthfeel: medium-light body, medium-high carbonation, and a little alcoholic warmth. Overall, really enjoyed the appearance and mouthfeel. A very well done, easy to drink beer.
