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.

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 for the stupid book. The pour is a darker copper color with a thin ring of cream colored head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is really interesting. There is a maltiness about it and some fruits, with some caramel and a touch of sweet potato. It’s got just a faint bit of metallic on the back end. The flavor is grainy and wet up front. There is a light sweet potato and a bit of light and metallic malt. There’s almost a watered down molasses in there as well. The mouth feel is light and thinly carbonated with a lingeringly sweet and metallic grainy finish. This isn’t that great at all.

Bottle. Pours copper with a frothy head. Aromas of sweet malt. Flavors are candied malt, a bit of toffee and bread. Exceedingly smooth. Muted hop presence. This is mainly a sweet, smooth, malty offering. Not bad, but not exceptional.

OK cool, altbier. Bottle. Darkish pale beer. Sweet malty hardtack candy aroma. Older sweeter near cloying older lager feel. A little thick, sticky with some co2. Medicinal malty thang. Perhaps some peat in there. Malty malt. Seems a lot more than 5.5%. Not impressed. Not nearly as drinkable as Big Boss Beer Fest Beer, Erie Brewing Heritage Alt or Schell Schmaltzs Alt.

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a dark copper with a beige head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma is nutty and malty. Sweet nutty nuances, a lot like a dry english toffee. Almost musty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad, but it’s a bit different from what I’ve noticed in other Altbiers.

Creamy mild malty flavor. Almost reminds me of an Octoberfest. Very consistent smooth head that dissipates after a short time. It’s a little weak overall, but verry well balanced. Great color too

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium head. Aroma is malt forward. Medium mouthfeel with strong maltiness flavor. Finish is dry. A solid Alt style ale I always grab when I’m on the west coast.
