Alaskan Amber pours a reddish color with a nice decent size frothy head. There is a weak malty aroma. The taste is very light, has some nice biscuit flavors near the end, with a noticeable malty flavor. A little flat, and very weak flavors. Overall it has nice flavors, but its just too weak.

650ml bottle from Whole Foods. Pours darkish amber with thin head. Aroma is mellow malt, taste is malt with a touch of hops. , abrupt finish. I wasn’t expecting an alt, so this was a nice surprise.
