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

Pours amber red with nice khaki foamy crown. Sweat and malty, easy drinking good local amber altbier style. Good times in Alaska on cruise.

6/15/23 Stopped at Hungry Buffalo after hiking at Hocking Hills State Park.

Aroma is very malty and light bready... Stoney.

Starts out very malty and then goes bland after that. Not very interesting and had no depth.

Our first from Alaskan Brewing.

I had this on draft 3/29/23 @ the Hopleaf.

See-through amber appearance.

Small off-white head; decent lace.

Banana & faint caramel notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Banana, mild caramel & faint hop bite flavors. Easy to enjoy.

Clear dark amber color with a respectable tan head but dissipates quickly, bits of lacing.
The aroma is mostly malt - caramel, chocolate, mildly sweet, a bit of herbal hops at the end.
The taste is very similar, nice rich malt flavors with a bit more hops going for a nice balance. The finish is somewhat drier with a lingering herbal note.
The body is medium, moderate carbonation very smooth and drinkable.
Altogether, this is a very tasty and satisfying brew for the malt lolvers, very nice, it's been a while since I had a good altbier, too long.

Nice beer. Perhaps a touch watery tasting at point but for the modest ABV its expected. Won't buy another 6er of this but also won't hesitate to grab one on draft on occasion in the future.

I've always liked this beer, when I see it on a menu, but I never bought it for home. Now that I have, I can see why I like it: it's in the Altbier style, which I love. I think, for an American brew, it's a great take on the German style: it tastes malty, rounded, smooth, without much carbonation, and overall delicious. Makes me want another. Pours an attractive reddish, light brown color.

This is a "sleeper" of a beer. Most will pass it by as it does not look or sound sexy. But, if you like a good amber, this beer will surprise you with good flavor and a smooth easy to drink experience. It is never going to be the best beer in the world, but it is a solid and reliable go to beer.
