The appearance was a semi dark red color with a bar pour of no head. The smell was a dark caramel malt with a rounded out bready toastiness running in and out on my nose. The taste was mainly malty with a decent back up bready nuttiness running here and there over my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionabiity about it. Decent carbonation leads to malty smooth aftertaste and a rather dry finish. Overall, decent red ale that does everything it needs to for the style. I’d have it again.

A rock-solid Red from a rock-solid brewery. Yukon has been consistently making great beer for over twenty years and I was fortunate enough to tour the brewery when it was just getting started. If you want a nicely-flavored, malt forward red ale, Arctic Red is an excellent choice.

I think this beer is intended to be a common-ground between macro- and micro- styles of beer in that it has some flavour and body, but isn't overwhelming to the average Joe. There is a lot of toasted malt up front and some hop bitterness on the backend. Not much carbonation. I think this is a solid example of a mass-appeal amber that still can please the odd beer snob who finds his way into the Yukon.

Yukon Red pours a deep, bright red amber with a thin head that fades quickly. The aroma is malty, with some nutty toffee and caramel and just a hint of earthy hops. The nutty malt dominates the flavor with a nice sweetness that isn't cloying. The bitterness is mild and there is a bit of fruitiness in the finish.
