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.

On tap at Seattle airport, USA. Really farewell beer this time, thanks to luttonm for all he did for me! Pours super bright Amber color with a medium tan foam. Nose: ash, butterscotch, amber/caramel. Mouth: littler amber feel, but peppery and crispy overall mouth with a very nice bitter finish! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is rather weak. Notes of malt and caramel in the nose. Taste of caramel and sweet malt. Balanced by hops so its not too sweet Good beer

Pours a clear dark orangish red with a thin fizzy head. Light malty aroma with hints of hay and honey. Sweet malty taste. Taste and aroma are both fairly weak and bland. Palate is watery. Not bad but boring.

Amber red with medium head. Smooth taste with caramel malt flavour. Like this interpretation of German Alt.

rgf001 (323) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2015
I am rating this as an Alt Bier per the bottle and Rate Beer. The aroma has more English caramel notes and less hops than a normal Alt. The hop aroma is not far but not quite the one of an Alt. The bitterness level is lower than an Alt and it has a caramelly sweet mid palate that is not appropriate for an Alt. The finish is not as dry or as hoppy as an Alt. Ok beer but not close to a Dusseldorf Alt.

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2015
pours amber with a thin tan head. Flavor and aroma are heavy malt. slight metallic aftertaste. Drinkable but not something I would get again.
