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.

Slightly hazy amber beer. Light off white head. Light malt nose. Softish palate. Light malt with subtle smoke. On top is dry and very mild orangey hop. Finishes soft and a little dry. Doesn’t hang together for me.
