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.

Draft in Chandler, AZ. Nice amber color with little white head. Very light aroma of malt and spice. Taste is similar with spicy bitter aftertaste. Drinkable beer.

Pours a lovely amber with a solid head that has OK retention and delivers decent mouthfeel. It smells very malty with no hint of the hops. Has a lovely, smooth malty flavor. Little hop flavor.

looks like southern comfort-the hard alchohol (orangish/red/brown). soda-like head which dissipated very quickly. sweet taste, slightly cherry or maybe maple. weak flavour.

12 ounce bottle from the sampler pack. Pretty nice looking amber beer with good carbonation. High viscosity through the use of caramel malts with low hop bitterness and no hop aroma. I do like the fact that this amber ale is not dry hopped, but if it is supposed to be similar to German Altbier, it is way off the mark. Nonetheless, a quite enjoyable amber ale which I think many people will find quite pleasant.

Amber colored. Good sized off white head that fully diminishes. Aroma of caramel. Sweet malty caramel initial flavor balanced out by some hops in the end. Not a bad beer.

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2005
On tap. I really liked this beer, it has a unique sort of creamy-sweet taste like flowers and fruit. The taste seems to be one thing at first, and then there is a very odd but wonderufl aftertaste that lasts. Not very bitter if youre into that, and not very thick, but definitely one of the better widely available american beers Ive had.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
Bottled. Very malty, caramel taste. Rich, creamy finish with almost no aftertaste. Lack of a hoppy finish was disappointing. thought it could have used more depth in the flavor and was a bit sweet.

This is a really good, malty amber beer. It has more flavor than most beers in this category and it is very smooth. A great everyday beer!

a nice amber color with hints of sweetness and a light hoppiness in the aroma. a medium to light bodied amber with a nice light maltiness and a light doughy taste. a light finish with a mild hoppiness good to style
