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.

Pours a goldern amber with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, hops and malts. Somewhat overly carbonated with a dry aftertaste. Tastes of caramel, malts, and nuts.

Courtesy of fordest. Bottle. Aroma light and sweet caramel. Poured just like the label indicated. Flavor was all malts, sweet and caramel. Palate was good. Overall this was just solid, a nice drinker something you could easily have a few more.

Pours ruddy amber with moderate carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma, just light and sweet. Starts sharp, really the only hop bitter in there - then the malt quickly takes over. Moves on pretty smooth.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle: poured clear amber with a small off white head. Light fruit and hop aroma. Good clean flavor. Light notes of fruit with just a touch of hops and light sweetness. Very easy drinking. Good beer.

Alaskan Airlines- good malt presence that dominates and satisfies. Low hop character was much appreciated.

My most favorite every day drinking beer. This beer is great from the first time you open it. You are greeted with an almost sweet aroma that promises nothing more than it delivers.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle. Clear dark amber body, not much head. You know those worthless orange/black taffy-peanut butter candies they give out on halloween? This smells like those alongside crystal malt. Great malt flavor - clean clear sweet caramel and toasted malt finishing with a hint of minerals and grassy hops. Medium body with a ticklish carbonation.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Draught. Clear copper color with bubbly white head. Subtle caramel nose that takes more than one sniff to detetect. Dry with a malty cereal grain flavor with a spicy flavor. Maybe a bit too carbonated.

I enjoy this one from time to time, but my best experience came when I had it in Alaska with my wife while we were on a cruise. It went INCREDIBLY well with the king salmon chowder that a local micro-brew in Skagway was selling. While the bottle version is slightly different, it is still very good. Complex malt flavour, medium-bodied, and just the right amount of hops to let you know they are there. Copper colored with a nice white head. Nothing else can really be said that hasnt. Always a good buy.
