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.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2006
(08.11.06) 12 oz brown bottle from Liquid Solutions. Bottle labeled 8/17/06. Caramel aroma. Poured clear amber with small off-white head. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and caramel/toasted malt flavors. Finished dry with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. Smooth and well-balanced. A very good drinkable ale.

Unde (1116) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Clear amber colour, nice fluffy head on top dissolves rather quickly. Aroma has caramel malts, barley malts, sweet syrup, bread. Taste has barley malts, caramel sweetness and a bit fry after taste. Medium creamy body and high carbonation.

3.2
jbruner (5008) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild fruity esters and clean sweet malts. Taste is more to the malty caramel sweetness, but a nice yeasty backbone with just a touch of earthy hop. The epitome of American amber.

2.7
kwik-lime (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Draft at BeerPark in Vegas. Mid-brown pour, quite malty with some nuts and grain but the finish was a bit cloyingly sweet which put me off a bit.

12 oz bottle (at Caverns Inn). Pour is clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Grain, caramel, bread, butterscotch, nuts, lightly hopped. Smooth, mild malt finish. Like the bottle.

nathanvc (598) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle from Vons, Las Vegas. Pours hazy dark amber with a minimal, off-white head - some particles in it. The aroma contains malt, caramel, bread, fruits, hops, some nuts. It tastes medium sweet and very light bitter without becoming really hoppy. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Agreeable.

3.6
sawbuck (749) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2017
Nice aroma of rich sweet malt, caramel and a hint of molasses. Nice deep orange brown red coloring with a huge tan head. Rich sweetness up front. Roasted malt... on the sweet side. Slightly smokey. Bitterness comes in nicely to balance. Medium mouthfeel, finish is mostly sweet but refreshing. Fresh sample makes the difference.

2.5
tntracey (91) - Hood River, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2017
A good beer to be served on a jet while on my way to Portland, OR. Most airlines serve only crapweiser and the like. That said, I don’t anticipate ever myself buying this beer from a store.

2.8

12 oz. bottle. Poured dark amber with an off white head. Aroma was toasted malts, caramel, bread. Taste was bittersweet, malty, caramel, spice, grain.
