Malty with roasted overtones, Alaskan ESB has a crisp finish and floral aroma resulting from premium Northwest hops.

Copper/brown color and minimal head make this sucker appear to be an ESB. Aromas of dirt, grass, herbal tea...mouthwatering. Malt sweetness and in-your-face dry and hoppy (absolutely NW flavor) finish is good. Another Alaskan I wish it had been easier to find.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Pours with a frothy white head the quickly dissipates. Translucent amber. Malty,but lacking the sulfur, it has all the right malt and hops. Good ESB, Thanks Loweredsixth

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2003
A cherry amber with a small off-white head. Initial aroma is citrus(orange/grapefruit) that gives way to a fuggle hop aroma, caramel malts. A caramel taste with a musty hop, dry finish. A very good ESB.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Thin, off-white head that does not linger long. The beer has a deep, clear, ruby red color and a wonderful aroma of piney hops with just a bit of malty sweetness and a hint of caramel. Medium to full body with light carboantion, the mouthfeel is smooth and creamy right through to the finish. The flavor is malty up front with a touch of caramel and the finish is long and slightly bitter from the hops. Well balanced and very drinkable, this is very nice ESB.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Clear copper color,small tight tan head that had a decent staying power.Mild malt aroma with a light citrus hint and decent hop presence.The taste is mildly fruity at first then it changes to a semi-bitter hops taste,lightly spicy,with the after taste being mostly grapefruit and hops.Definately a good brew and very drinkable with just the right amount of everything IMO.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Pretty glowing ruby/brown color with a nice beige head. The aroma was full of hops...citrus and floral tones...with some burnt caramel. The flavor was more sweet...caramel and malt. Crisp, clean feel with a semi-dry finish. Very enjoyable session beer.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2003
I could certainly put a lot of this stuff down. Doughy/piney aroma with apricots. Beautiful appearance, nice finish. A bit of smokiness...this has it all. Could be my new go-to beer?

citrus hop aroma, beautifully amber, watery and grainy with a slight hop bite
