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.

Now, this beer I really enjoyed a definate step up from the Pilsner I loved the make-up of this beer from the inital taste to the bottom of the glass. A Great beer! aracauna (3589) - Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Clear copper body with a large, fluffy head. Light malty aroma. Full, malty body is toast and a little caramel. Low bitterness. Slightly creamy body. Excellent lager. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Grumbler purchase from Breeze-IN, Juneau AK.
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. Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 22, 2003
I really like this Lager! Darker than most lagers in North America, slightly copper straw. Well balanced with a mild hop presence. Great drinking lager. Happy to see a quality American "North German" style lager. Thanks

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Pours with a dark copper, amber color and a decent head. Taste is very fresh and malty, though with fair bitterness not sweet. It’s one of those lagers that ale drinkers like. furthur (1166) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Draft at williwa, rusty amber beer, cream white head. Aroma is malt and nutty lager. Taste is malt, touch of caramel, hint of coffee, clean finish. Palate is smooth, light but not watery, carbonation moderate. Really good lager! BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Copper/amber hued with a small frothy off-white head and good lacing. The aroma hints of floral and grassy hops, orange zest, lemons, toasted malts and a touch of sweet spice. The taste starts bittersweet with good hops and malt balance. Grassy and twangy undertones. The finish is clean mostly, with an lingering effect of bitters. The mouthfeel is lively and shows good body for the style, crisp. A very well done lager indeed, don't pass this one up for you get the chance. Thanks Jeff for the bottle. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2010
