Color: Nice amber looking beer.

Smell: smells like warm candy in the summer. great smell.

Taste and Mouthfeel: A Nice matlt balance. This is a very drinkable beer.

This is a very good beer. I am so glad it is one state that is less then 3 hours away for me. i will be making trips to WI for it. This beer brings me back to the nice summer to fall day as a kid. I don't know why. I really enjoy this beer. Cheers!

Awesome perfectly balanced beer. Not to hoppy, nice body. Great with food. Wish there were more beers like this. Why do we have to go all the way to Alaska to find good beer? Not sure but they do a damn fine job.

I can not say enough good things about Alaskan Amber. It is creamy without being thick, sweet without being saccharine, hoppy without being bitter. Just toasty, caramelly (I realize this is not a word), and generally perfect. I have tried hundreds of beers and this remains a mainstay in my household.

Well balanced amber ale that tastes a lot like a standard brown ale.

Ordered on draft at an airport while waiting for my flight. This is banana bread in beer form. Pours with a small head that leaves very little lacing. Has a translucent amber coloring. Tastes nutty and sweet with a little banana flavor. I'm hooked. Hopefully I can get some back home!
