Another of the treasures of the north I found on my recent Alaska trip. Dark copper with a foamy light beige head. Mildly sweet cereal malts, mineral salts (a bit too salty IMO to really enjoy), some bitterness at the end. A bit thin.
Bottle poured Riverside in Fairbanks AK, copper with moderate ecru head. Nose light dank, apple, light earthy. Taste light bitter up front, caramel, earthy, and light grainy malt late. dnstone (3385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2017
