3.9/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: The beer is a deep amber color. Eggshell white head that reduces and clings to the glass nicely.
Smell: Mild hops, pine, citrus, and lightly toasted malts are detectable. Not an overly impressive smell.
Taste: Malt, citrus, pine, and a bit of spiciness and and hops at the end. The spiciness is interesting to me, it gives this beer a different characteristic than other amber beers I've had. It must be the altbier style.
Mouthfeel: It's relatively light bodied, but I like the amount of carbonation it has. It goes down pretty smoothly and has a slightly bitter finish.
Drinkability: Very drinkable and refreshing. A good beer to sit down and watch some football with.
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%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
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.
