COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oosik Amber Ale is a true German-style altbier, brewed with pale, Munich and crystal malts. Deep amber with copper highlights, Oosik sports a toasted and caramel malt profile, balanced by traditional noble hops. A special yeast strain ferments this ale at cooler lager temperatures, giving it a smooth malt character and a clean finish.

Want to hang—so to speak—for a while? Oosik Amber Ale gives you hang time. Great flavor, big mouthfeel, satisfying finish…all in a session-worthy beer. Compare it to other ambers—Oosik rules. Look for our 20-inch Oosik tap in better beer bars throughout AK.

You can’t just have a little Oosik.

The name references a walrus penis bone, hence the tap handle. That’s Alaskan humour for you. The beer is less of a laughing matter. Cloudy amber, diacetyl and touch of biscuity malts,touch of biscuit and light caramel...thankfully tastes better than it smells.

I had this at Hangar on the wharf, Juneau AK. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was extremely hazy pale orange to red to brown (it kinda reminded me of a glossed over beer milkshake due to the haziness). There’s a slim white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left some light glazed over lacing. The smell had a roasted bready maltiness running through some caramel malts. The taste was heavy on the caramel malts and combining with the breadiness adequately. There was a dry roasty caramel finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent light carbonation running about it. Overall, honestly it was just an okay red ale but I’m trying to figure out why a beer company would name a beer after a whale’s penis.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2011
[Tap] At Humpy’s in mid-September. Pours an average amber color with a quickly receding head. Aroma of caramel malts, hazelnut, mild vanilla and grass. Toasted malts, biscuits, sticky caramel and light brown sugar in the taste. Roasted nutty notes are also evident. The mouthfeel is well above average for the style, which is a pleasant surprise. Good stuff.
