Doesn't the beer always taste better when you visit the estabishment where it's brewed? While in Juneau, I stopped by and had a few brews. One of the brews was there Amber Ale. The color when poured from the tap was a deep golden amber with a fair amount of foam that dissapated but carried a fair amount of lace on the glass. The smell of roasted malts and fruit with a hint of spice filled the nose with a pleasant aroma. The taste was even better. Roasted malts with a complex of fruit and spices. Like I said, being there has a lot to do with the evaluation of the beer!
Serving type: on-tap

Alaskan Amber pours a reddish color with a nice decent size frothy head. There is a weak malty aroma. The taste is very light, has some nice biscuit flavors near the end, with a noticeable malty flavor. A little flat, and very weak flavors. Overall it has nice flavors, but its just too weak.

3.49/5 rDev -3.9%

A: Burnt orange sienna. Not much of a head due to the non-aggressive pour.
S: Cashews, malt, light popcorn, sweetness.
T: Similar to the nose: Cashews, malt, dough, light popcorn, hint of toasty malt, rye bread, biscuit, and spice.
M: Medium light with a nice touch of carb on the back end. Leaves some coating in your mouth (not in a viscous way, but in a flavorful way).
O: Better than I expected, but not extravagant. This is a pleasant brew for relaxation and sessioning. Not the balls, but good regardless.
