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.

OlJuntan64 (1264) - Perth, - AUG 14, 2006
nice light tawny cola colour with a fizzy tiny short lasting white head - nothing like the photo -might be off. Sweet caramel malt roast with light spice nose. medium light smooth palate consistent with altbier - if there is one in teh first place. Sweet medium intensity soft sweet caramel, low bitterness. Pleasant enough.

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 (6770) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018
12oz bottle from Raven Cafe, Prescott, AZ. A dark amber colour with a tight cream head; sweet malt aroma; taste of fruity malts and caramel; and a lingering malty finish. A mellow and pleasant amber ale.

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 (622) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Dark amber pour, thin white head. Flavor is a rustic malted grain with a finish of carbonation and Carmel malts.

Foffern (2047) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 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.

It has a nose of bread and molasses. It goes down easily with a foretaste of carbonation. A well-balanced made taste and a slight bitterness at the end. It was good not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ccex (1391) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2017
12 oz. bottle pours a clear dark copper color with creamy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of caramel and candy. Taste is sweet, with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a creamy, slightly slick mouthfeel. A good beer for November, but too sweet to be a great one.
