Alaskan White is much more a rich gold color than white, and there wasn't much white head to speak of either (even with a fairly aggressive pour only a quarter inch of foam emerged and dissapeared as quickly as it came).
Smells slightly grassy, grainy, and "lager-y" but is accented nicely with some subtle banana and what I guess is the coriander. Aroma isn't all that strong, but it is good and fresh.
The taste is a bit of an interesting departure-- tastes much less like a Belgian Wit and more like an American lager. The simple grassy, grainy malt flavors and mild hop flavor are not bad; yet they do feel out of place. There is a mild orange citrus on the finish that is likeable. Comes off as a bit watery especially if your expecting flavors of a Belgian ale.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and yet manages to feel creamy too.
Like most of Alaskan Brewing Co. beers, Alaskan White is built for easy drinking.
