COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name of this beer style comes from the German word “alt” meaning “old”. This refers to the aging that alts undergo since they ferment more slowly and at colder temperatures than most ales. Slow fermentation helps condition the flavors in Alaskan Amber, contributing to its overall balance and smoothness.

Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Beer Fest. Pours a clear gold with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grass note with a hint of light fruit and a grain backbone. Flavor is mild with grass and grain and not much else.

Tayeth (492) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2015
Angenehmer malziger und leicht sirupartiger Geruch. Für ein "Alt style Lager" dann aber zu wenig Hopfenaroma und Bittere. Der Geschmack ist hauptsächlich süß und malzig und etwas kratzig im Nachtrunk.
