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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Alaskan Amber is a solid representation of the style with its malt forward, semi-sweet approach. The beer pours beautifully, with a thick two finger head and a dark copper color. The head does not persist long, but there is good lacing.

The smell is a bit of a disappointment, as there's not a lot exploding at the nose. Instead, you get sweetness and caramel or toffee tones coming in very subtly. As for the taste, the beer comes alive a bit more, as the malts become more pronounced and the hops emerge a bit more to offer a tinge of dryness and bitterness.

This beer is a winner as an everyday beer. Given that six packs are going for $7 in my neck of the woods, you really can't beat the bang for your buck. It's tasty, easy-drinking and smooth. This is an easy choice for showing up at a party with a small, cheap offering.
