Notes/Commercial Description:
Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

Nice copper reddish color with a thin head.
Light, but predominant aroma of red fruits, sweet candy and caramels.
Flavor of caramels, red fruits, spices, plums, and herbal and citrus hops. Lots of currants.
Dry aftertaste with a very mild bitterness.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
I had to keep remember myself this is an Altbier and not an American Amber Ale as indicated by name. Still I found it a bit overly sweet and lacking spices. But it is very fruity and enjoyable.

Another very smooth beer from Alaskan, no overpowering hops, just right on the hoppy side, enjoyable beer with a very slight honey aftertaste. A little high on the carbonation, a little above medium carbonation. I like medium carbonation, would have been a higher rating if the carbonation was lighter.
