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

~Toasty bready malt aroma with strong floral and earthy hops. Very pleasant and well balanced aroma. ~Pours a clear copper color with small wispy off white head. ~Bready malt with a slight sweetness followed up with a burst of floral earthy hops. ~Medium bodied with medium high CO2, lingering bitterness and a bite that only ale yeast can provide. ~ Really enjoying this one. Have had several at different times of the day and after different meals. Is good any time. Good all around brew to have on hand.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Fairly clear amber color with a thin head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of floral hops, toffee, pale & munich malts and yeasts. Flavors of floral hops, bitter hops, yeasts, munich malts and light toffeeness. Floral Hop and light malty aftertaste. Tastes almost like an English Pale Ale. Light body and mild-moderate carbonation. Tastes great!

dlihcsnatas (297) - Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Amber brew with a sweet aroma with some hints of floral hops. Taste is mostly a toasted bread with slight caramel. The hops don’t really do much to improve upon that. When held on the toungue a bit there is an off metalic taste. Best to just drink it down. Overall a decent brew but not something I would want to call ESB.

kidmartinek (3674) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Deep red-tinted amber color. Over-adequate bubbling holds a tall beige head. This foamy lace. Hoppy English malt aroma with dark toasted biscuit. Flavor starts sweet and rolls into perfectly balanced beer taste with the hops finishing up o.ly slightly bitter. Very good ESB. Other.than the alcohol content is too high at 5% I’m very impressed.

fiulijn (14778) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport)
Dark amber color with compact head. Smell of cleaning products (the glass?) and some nice caramel. Strong caramel flavor with a mild animal component. Strong bitterness. Not really an ESB, more an American thing; not bad.

Dark orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong biscuit malt notes with a bit of grass. The flavor is very similar. I get some biscuit malt, grass and a hint of orange citrus. The bitterness level is fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.
