COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.

Decent. Malty sweet smell, slightly sweet taste with lots of malt. Not bad. Sessionable.

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.

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

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.

Pours deep amber with nice clarity. A thin head soon fizzles away. The smell is of caramelish sweet maltiness with a vague hop spiciness. The taste is of caramel sweetness with some spicy, oily, hops that become more apparent as the drink progresses.

bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a light fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet with a strong caramel aroma. The flavor has malty with an earthy hop and caramel on the crisp finish. The finish is a bit bitter but finishes nice.
