Only the 2nd. beer that I have ever had from Alaska. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze/amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, light malts. Taste is bready malts, some nuts, a tad bit of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer.

This is a descent drinkable beer, it pour a nice dark amber color with a nice finger an a half off white head. The head dissipates rather quickly and there is no lacing left behind. I poured it in a pint glass and drank the beer slowly, so by the end it had warmed up a bit. This is worth a try

Dark red brown. Smells of toasted malts, nuts. Taste follows with rich malty, caramel taste. Creamy mouthfeel. I'm not familiar with this style but I like this beer!

Good amber. Solid to drink a few but loses its luster the more you have

Clear, reddish beer with a slightly tan head. The beer smells like caramel and apples with a floral hoppiness. The taste is not as sweet as the smell and has some fruitiness and floral components. There is some apple and caramel flavors and a mild bitterness. Not a bad beer at all.

Pours dark clear a,beer with one finger head.
The aroma is caramel and toasted malts with a light fruity yeastiness and a slightly pronounced floral hop.
It hits with a big malty sweetness up front. I'm getting a very nice toastiness with very light toffee that finishes nice and dry as the sweetness just kind of fades away.
The mouthfeel is light medium with a good amount of carbonation.
Overall this is a very nice beer. It's probably my favorite out of the few altbiers I've had. It's very nice.
