A 12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - A nice copper colored beer. Not cloudy. The head had a slight reddish hue but it didn't stick around to long. Minimal lacing.

Smell - Malty. Sweet. Root beer. This beer has a nice nose.

Taste - Malty. Sweet. Taffy. Nice carbonation. The hops play a minor yet important role.

Mouth - Fizzy. Fresh. Slightly oil.

Overall - A nice Amber. The beer is friendly but a little lacking in character.

Alaskan Amber has a thin, khaki head, a semi-clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and basically no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, caramel candy or toffee and brown bread crust. Taste is of those as well, and this beer has a mild underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and somewhat slick, and Alaskan Amber has a mostly dry, easy going and easy-drinking finish. Overall, this is really nice, and I rate it rather highly. Get some!

Poured into a Becker pint after about 15 minutes out of the fridge at room temp.

Pours a deep red/amber with good clarity. 1 finger off-white head dissipates very quickly.

Big roasty grain aromas, caramel, raisins, medium hops.

Taste is slightly sweet, prominent caramel malts, with a decent hop bite to balance it out.

Medium bodied with pleasant viscosity, but the carbonation is just too much when i go in for the 'swish'.

Overall a very good beer, but the carbonation kind of detracts from it for me. Digging the aroma and flavor, but the bubbles are a bit too intense.
