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.

Sweet malt and grape on the palate. Toffee malt, a little bit of toasted bread, and some red fruits. Minimal hoppiness, just a little bit of floral hop character.

Aroma of malt and a bit of candy. Coppery amber color with virtually no head. Starts with a slightly smoky malt which goes to malt which stays with malt. A bit of hop shows up, keeping it palatable. Good. Not a hophead ale, but good.

Slightly hazy deep amber with minimal head. Sweet caramelly aroma, supplemented by sugar cane. The flavor has what the aroma suggests, plus a bit of spiciness so its not unbearably sweet. Minimal bitterness, but quite full bodied. Evokes Fullers.
