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.

Altbier are hard to come by in Texas (ironic considering the heavy German infulences) so I was thrilled to try what is probably the most well known one in America. Alaskan Amber is a juicy amber colored beer with nice drinkability. Light fruit notes like fig and raisin are present. Lightly carbonated and very mellow. A pretty good flagship session beer. Overall it was a beer I enjoyed.

A - Fairly clear light amber with a thin off white head leaving no lace behind as it settles.

S - Lightly toasted bready malt with caramel and toffee.

T - Grainy malts mixed with multigrain bread, slightly nutty, sweet caramel and light herbal hops.

M - On the light side of medium with low to medium carbonation. I get a lingering sweetness but it is pleasant instead of cloying.

D - A light, tasty, easy drinking alt.
