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.

BeerRenter76 (1061) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 1/20/2009. A nice amber body with ample carbonation, good lace left on my glass. Flavor was caramel malts with a hint of nuts, slightly sweet finish. Crisp carbonation bite, with not much aftertaste. My first alt beer was pretty decent.

agent_persik (804) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 21, 2017
Clean dark amber colour, small white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, grain, toffee, honey. Sweet lightly dry taste, subtle bitterness in finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Very nice.

balloonbuffoon (806) - - APR 18, 2017
Draft, 16floz pint. presented a clear copper-amber, with very little head. Buttery caramel nose transcends to highly malty beverage with just enough hops to balance. An okay drinking beer that is firmly medium in body, although a bit syrupy. Pretty bland, I’ve had better alts/amber ales-lagers.

3.2
hauxe (1063) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 15, 2017
Pours amber from the bottle with an off white head. Aroma is caramel. Taste is sweet, lots of caramel, and light red berry undertones. Body stays rather light. Decent if unexciting.

3.2
lbianchi66 (457) - FRANCE - APR 8, 2017
Robe ambrée et limpide. Arômes caramel. Goût malté et caramel. Légères notes de banane. Texture assez fluide. La carbonatation est fine et moyennement abondante. Le caramel reste en bouche. Bonne mais sans complexité.

3.7
Aggie80 (832) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Dark cola color with an off white head and some lacing. Malty aroma and a rather sweet flavor. Coats the mouth with a malty flavor with just a touch of hop bitterness. I really enjoyed this and could see it being a great one to have on a summer day.

3.5
PugUglyBrewer (889) - - MAR 15, 2017
One of the classic ambers on the market pours a dark reddish brown with a developed head off off-white foam. Lightly sweet notes of caramel grain and biscuit. Some floral/earthy hops to balance out the sweetness.

3.3
Cuso (8960) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle from trade with CH-303, many thanks. Amber color with thick off-white head. Caramel, red fruits, light hops in aroma. Taste of caramel malt, some roastiness, nuts.

3.6
jsmerig (1748) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Pours a clear reddish Amber. Aroma of syrupy malt sweetness and a biscuity note. Taste is malt-forward with a healthy honey sweetness. Offset nicely with an earthy hoppy note that allows it to finish dry. A little sweet for the style but great from a drinkability standpoint.
