This was poured into a pilsener.
The appearance was a nice hazy dark bronze to caramel brown color. A one finger white foamy head lasted for a good thirty seconds before gently dieing. The lacing formed a glossed over semi - thick coating.
The smell had a rich dark nutty caramel maltiness running in and out of a light toffee. Crisp noble hops play softly upon my nose.
The taste was mainly sweet malty caramel covered nuts. There’s a lingering nutty to caramel aftertaste leading into a watery caramel finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. There’s a nice rich smooth and somewhat sticky caramel maltiness rolling over my tongue.
Overall, for the style this is definitely up to par in fact I think I’d rather have this before a SA Boston Lager. Thank you Silver Gulch for sending another one down here.
Very surprising flavor and drinkability for a small town Alaskan beer. Heavy duty bottling gives the beer an even better appearance and stays true to it's Alaskan rustic lines.
