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.

I thought this was a great beer. I really liked the smooth yet grainy flavor and mouthfeel. A real pleasure to drink.

Pour:amber mahogany color absent of head. nose; smells of malt, grassy, with a hint of floral. taste; complex roasted and caramel malt. Little to no hops at all. body;light to medium finish is subtle. overall; the beer is more an amber style instead of an altbier. There is a lack of hops in the beer. It’s an ok beer

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Light amber color. Sweet caramel aroma, malty balanced with some bitterness. Light, oily body/palate. Light and simple, yet good complexity for the style.

Bottle; Color: Reddish Amber. Aroma: Bread/Malt/ Sweet. Flavor: Bread notes, light toasted/roasted taste with a hint of herbs. Has a mild malt finish that turns into a copper aftertaste. Overall pretty solid.

Medium to full bodied surprise right here. Very interesting, candy like sweetness with a nice clean, dry, yet astringent finish. Nothing complicated, nothing fancy, just a good beer. Extremely easy to drink.

Nothing to see here,this is not an Alt beer.Go to Schlösser Alt for a real Alt beer.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Sampled poolside, Sqway Valley Ski Resort May 2nd, 2004. 75 degrees in the shade. This beer has more flavor than in many ’amber’ beers. No head and non dimemo aftertaste are almost made up by the carmel apple maltiness of this brew.

3.6
horto008 (186) - Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Excellent all the way around. On tap at a Chili’s in Colorado Springs. Beautiful amber color and a moderate, foamy head. Had little alcohol taste and was exceptionally smooth. Slightly sweet and not bitter. To me, it seemed to have a citrus-y quality not unlike a few Hef’s I’ve consumed. Overall, I was simply pleased to have an option of quality beer instead of the normal macro crap.

Hazy apperance, caramel flavor but with a weird metallic finish that I didn't care for at all. Very boring.
