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.

Enjoyable, but not much head. Would make a great session beer, kinda lightweight, reminds me of a first homebrew.

beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2006
22 oz Bomber-Trade w/after4ever. Pours a beautiful mahogany/copper color w/a small off white head. Malty, grassy, slightly roasted aroma. Sweet, roasted, floral, malty taste. Just enough hops to balance out the finish. Long grainy hoppy finish. Very smooth, very drinkable, very enjoyable. Would definately be a good sesson beer. I’ve always wanted to try this beer and have finally gotten the chance. Thanks for the trade!!

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2006
From draught. Pours a cherry amber translucent color with a medium layer of creamy off-white head. Aroma of fried plantains, a splash of hazelnut liquore, and a touch of anise as well. A bit of fruity bubblegum notes as well. Light bodied mouthfeel with an exceptionally creamy texture. Flavors are nice and relatively sweet with some nice almond nutty tones and light raspberry fruits composingt the malt-biased palate profile. Final smack of lightly toasted banana bread.

A good semi dark amber. I got hints of chocolate with every drink. Absolutely a beer made to serve Ice Cold. Worth a try.

Usual appearance, good initial head and good lacing, amber colored (not as deep a copper as I like in an alt). Malts were mildly sweet and moderately rich
