Has everything going for it 'cept MY taste buds. I thought it finished way too sweet. Was barely able to choke down the whole bottle. IMO the Pale is a far better brew.
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. Easy to drink. Tastes good. I would buy again.

Draft at Kasey's Tavern in Chicago. This is a chewy, rich, malty beer. Toasty bread and grain. Dry, crisp, clean finish. Always great to find an American Altbier on draft. berkshirejohn (6827) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018

From a bottle poured into a shaker. Medium bodied fruity and juicy alt. A little light on the maltiness but I think that adds to the drinkability. Solid beer. weitz15 (636) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2017

Can at airplane. The color is clear mahogany with a light beige head. A little careful and malty aroma of bread, wood, grass and some dried fruit and acetone. Sweet and malty flavor with dried fruit, rye bread, leather, heather honey and grass in a dry ending. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. A malty and fine altbier with a nice bitterness. Tide (4652) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2017
