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.

Alaskan Amber Alt Style Ale: Appearance: amber; Smell: multi-grain Cheerios; T: wheat Cheerios, very slight bitterness; decent

I was quite surprised by the Cheerios them going on with this one.

Poured into a pint glass.

Chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner "8-ball" pool ball glass (I have the whole set of 15 glasses). Pours a pretty copper/bronze in color with really no head to speak of. Just a bit of lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of just some malt/hops. The taste was actually very pleasant with a slight nutty hint. Very smooth with no bitter aftertaste. Never had this style of brew before and liked it overall.

Thick creamy head was the first thing I noticed. Not a bad beer. Less flavorful than I expected. I would buy again if selection was limited. Overall a slightly better than okay beer. good color. decent aroma. A beer you could have multiples of at one sitting.
