Hanan (70) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle 6r. Cold mug and bottle. Not terrible but probably the worst of the Alaskans. Not much citrus came through, hops kind of get diluted. Kind of budweiserish with a hop edge. Touch of hops. Could be a decent session beer. I prefer white ale alaskan. Ipa alaskan hits better for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer poors light golden, thin white head, and somewhat hazy with visible particulates. Huge citrus nose with light malt notes and moderate esters. Flavor has medium sweetness, medium bitterness, with slight citrus flavors from hops. Medium full body, lively carbonation, lightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall nice and drinkable. Mouthfeel is fuller than I’d expect, but good balance between hop and malt

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from 99 Bottles (Federal Way, WA). Deep citrus nose, with buttered popcorn. Light orange/amber color, thick tan head, and fine flowing constant carbonation. Mild caramelly initial, with light hopping and a metallic note in mid. A bit of flattening out in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Okay. Flavorful and one-dimensional stuff.

Drinking from the bottle. The nose is floral with a little citrus. The taste is sweet potpourri and rose petals. There is a slight warm taste in the finish that is syrupy. Love it.
