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.

light copper pour - aroma of caramel and bread - flavors of sweet malt and light hops with a malty finish

Pours a rich amber. Aroma is malt and honey. Taste is malt, honey, light fruits. Drinkable but not too memorable.

Doghair (243) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Mild malt aroma. Well balanced taste with hop flavor in the middle and more malt in the finish. Mildly bitter. Easy drinking. Nice.

On tap at happy hour. Looks like a standard amber ale; meager head retention.

Mild aroma leads to a malt-forward, boring, bland experience on the palate. How is this different from any other mass-produced disappointment?

MaltOne (184) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours dark copper, brief lacy white head. Mostly a good thirst quencher, with just enough malt to make it interesting. A creamy palate, slightly sweet. A good alternative session beer for those who avoid hops.

My favorite from Alaskan, and a pretty solid example of an American Amber. The caramel malt is smooth on this, some toffee present as well. There is a good mouthfeel on this too, you know your drinking a red.

Very nice look. Good head and great color. Smell doesn't live up to appearance. Not a bad smell, but way too light for an amber. Beer goes down smooth and has a great taste. Not overpowering, but a good mixture making a very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luvystypotables (394) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2014
Mild aroma of malt. Dark amber colour, no head. A mild balanced taste I nuts and malt. A creamy feel no real palate.

Aroma: caramel malts, toffee, iron. Appearance: dark clear amber, medium creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: medium body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, sweet malty taste, short finish. Overall: nice Altbier, quite a nice sweet taste.

Doofgoblin (267) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Not bad... reminds me of total cereal. It’s got that sort of brand mineral taste. The aroma is way off. Other than that it’s pretty non offensive and drinkable.

Though the visual appearance and aroma were average (subtle malty aroma with hints of citrus), the beer was very flat and watery on the palate and the taste was much more of the same.
