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.

pkbites (678) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pour is of darker orange/amber with an off white head that bails quickly. This crackles with the sound of artificial carbonation. Aroma is of sweet caramel corn (emphasis on CORN!). This has a weird "soup bullion" taste to it. Not overall horrible, but there are a zillion and six better ambers out there that I’d choose over this.

nose: cream soda, earth, toffee, palate: soft and sweet but complex. substantial carbonic acid adds a welcome edge and the texture is oily and creamy. tastes slightly smoky, malty, again cream soda but nutty and about half as sweet. superb! finish is all grainy and adds a dimension to finish this quite perfectly if you ask me.

From bottle poured into a pint glass purchased in Denver. I don't know. I guess what you would expect out of a craft amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, Butter Run Saloon, St. Clair Shores, MI. Not bad for a style that can pretty much be anything you want it to be. Easy to drink. Not a bad aftertaste on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (2562) - Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 10/21/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice altbier style. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Taster at Aces and Ales. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma has a mild fuityness. A malty beer with a bit of bright citrus and mild earth.

A great steady beer right from the bottle. Find it anywhere. Always good. Dont know if it’s really from Alaska, but hey did a good job on this malty amber.

Onslow (1151) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear brown brew with tan head. Aroma of caramel and mild hps. Taste is sweet caramel, light toast, low hop profile; a sour grassy taste from mid swallow on. Ends sweet. Average palate. Reminds me of other alts and old ales and it is a style that offers little room for flare. An OK brew.

umich03jm (1934) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Draft at The Oak. Amber-copper pour with a small head that fades to almost nothing. Aroma is pretty faint with just some caramel and a light fruitiness. Tastes rather bland. Sweet malt, some caramel, light flowers and a hint of fruit. Average amber.

ScipioA (287) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Fine yellowish amber appearance, aromas of some sort of sweet and yeasty pastry. In the mouth this is super fruity and sweet, the hops just sort of add an unwelcome bitter aftertaste. Flavors are tutti frutti and honey, all together somewhat cloying.

milewide (1497) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bland and sweet. No hop bitterness in either aroma or taste. Total let down after loving their smoked porter.
