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.

JStax (5748) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a dark copper with a beige head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma is nutty and malty. Sweet nutty nuances, a lot like a dry english toffee. Almost musty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad, but its a bit different from what Ive noticed in other Altbiers.

StoutBeerReviews (76) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Creamy mild malty flavor. Almost reminds me of an Octoberfest. Very consistent smooth head that dissipates after a short time. Its a little weak overall, but verry well balanced. Great color too

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium head. Aroma is malt forward. Medium mouthfeel with strong maltiness flavor. Finish is dry. A solid Alt style ale I always grab when Im on the west coast.

b3shine (8364) - Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Draft to pint. Looks solid; a mostly transparent amberish copper with off-white head. Smells and tastes malty with notes of caramel, yeast, and a touch of toast. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel. Decent, but unmemorable.

JohnGalt1 (1708) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2016
short lasting head and low lacing that stick around... true amber.. very nice color. aroma is very clean.. with caramel and bigger toasted malts.. only the slightest spicy hops make themselves known. palate is again... very very clean.. very drinkable... yummy.. biscuity with low citrus/floral hops. lite to medium body and better than adequate carbonation.

Beautiful deep cooper color with red hues and brown undertones. Head is light and dissipates quick. Good Carmel and toffee sweetness, a touch dark fruits and roasted malts. Hops just to balance out and the finishes crisp. Hops slightly longer just enough to keep it from getting sticky. Very very drinkable. A very good Amber (even though it is an alt). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
