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.

SpringsLicker (3593) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Clear copper pour with a minimal white head. Some malt in the aroma, some nutty toasty aromas, but overall the aroma is very restrained. Slightly sweet, no real hops here. Some salty metallic flavor in the finish.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber with a minimal head. Nose is clean, malt and caramel. Flavor is smooth, sweetness and malt with just a hop sprinkle to allow the other flavors the opportunity to be heard. Definately a beer to have more than one of, unfortunately I only had one :-(.

JorisPPattyn (9882) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
Fully clear chestnut; nearly no head, yellow tinted rim. Bit leathery nose, malt, leathergrease - though no Brett here. Slightly sweet ale, malty, very little coloured malts notes. Light body, but a clean palate. Nowhere next to a real Alt. Just a good sweet-ish session ale.

Sweet caramel in the aroma mixes with lightl roasted malts and some hops. Brilliantly clear amber with a nice white head and plenty of effervescent bubbles. Caramel malts bounce around in harmony with some toast and bitterness. Some tin in the flavor, but delish otherwise. Thanks Andre!

This is one of my favorite amber ales. Very well balanced and full of flavor. Other Alaskan brews seem a bit watered down by comparison. It makes sense that this is Alaskans most popular beer.

The best beer in my opinion. To think it came from the great chilly north is a testament to the dedication and know how of the folks producing this beer up there. Amber Gold.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Well this is my first altbier so i dont know what others taste like, but i think this beer is close to perfect as a casual drinking beer. It has a thick and malty, cedar colored body.. with a nice and lasting cream colored head. The smell and taste i got was sugar,honey and toffee. Little bitterness, goes down very smooth and light. Sweet oaky aftertaste, and like everybody says its a very drinkable beer. Since its light, sweet and tasty you will have more than one!!!

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Draft - A red amber colored beer with a light tan head. A citrus malty aroma. I thought this had a great amount of malt and hops. Tasted a bit like an IPA.
