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.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2019 Bottle poured into an altbier glass on 1/18/19. Orangey amber color and a small off white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Initial taste is barley and a little rye. Aftertaste is a little nutty. Lively carbonation. Body is a little thin. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2019 Alaskan Amber in bottle is good but if you try it on tap, it's sooo much better, it's very flavourful and refreshing. One of the best American beers!

Draft shaker at EvenFlow, Geneva. Damn, but this is a fine beer! Draft is a nice bright brown color, with a half-finger spongy head. Smell brings up nice deep malts, caramel with a bit of chocolate, and a light German noble hop nose. The taste shows its "alt" character up front. Roasty but mellowed malts. I'm thinking there's a bit of oats here for smoothness, but I see no evidence otherwise. The maltiness also makes this feel a little higher in alcohol than its "average" abv. No "spice," just caramel again, and a bit of cocoa. Hops are fully in balance, with perhaps a sidecar of Cascades to make it interesting.

riggsfc61 (454) - Franklin, North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2018 Found in bottle from variety pack from binnys in Springfield, Illinois. Nice amber color with mild malt aroma. Didn't enjoy the taste as much. No weird aftertaste but just a bit lacking throughout.

bierwolf78 (467) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2018
Donkergeel bier met een volle kaki schuimkraag. Aroma's van mout, karamel, gedroogd fruit, brooddeeg. Heeft een olieachtige textuur in het glas en is op het eind kruidig, iets bitter en droog.

Grumbo (6866) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2018
29/6/2018. Draft at Yard House at The Linq, Laz Vegas. Pours amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, malt, biscuit and a hint of chocolate and spice. Medium sweetness with moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average to soft carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (5099) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2018
BEST BY: 082918. Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, dark amber-toned body with a diminishing, white head. Smell: A sweet-smelling nose of cold toast, grains and apple candy as well as some supporting, smaller accents of spice, nut shells. Taste: Malty, fruity fare with toasted nuts, breadcrusts and grains rounded by a toffee-brown sugar-like sweetness. Strong apple note. Gently spicy, lightly floral hops with a reserved bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Lightly carbonated. Overall: A sweetish, malty one, though it's not problematically cloying. I haven't crossed paths with this one in many, many years.
