Overall a pretty average amber ale. A tab bit bitter and not unique by any means but a decent choice given limited selection (as out here in the Northwest it is a pretty common beer even at places that only have a few choices). Amber in color and I saw another poster mention cheerios when describing the smell and color...actually I think that is pretty spot on so I will go with that. I generally drink out of a bottle...drank at my wedding due to limited beer choices (no kegs allows, only bottles, only bottles the venue carried)...

(Previous review, transferred from beer journal)

Alaskan Amber Alt Style Ale: Appearance: amber; Smell: multi-grain Cheerios; T: wheat Cheerios, very slight bitterness; decent

I was quite surprised by the Cheerios them going on with this one.

Poured into a pint glass.
