Alaskan Amber

Alaskan Amber
Alt (Old) Style Ale

Ratebeer 3.35 79th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

The faint nose is quite malty and reveals caramel, roast and cherries. With a medium mouthfeel you were not overpowered by this malty brew. There is a good dose of caramel and earthy malts backed with floral hops. These flavours were enhanced by the accompanying cherries and roast/smoke.

Aftertaste 0

The light carbonation cleaned everything away after each sip. The ending was dry.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

It is was it is. An easy drinking beer.

Value +1

I have heard people speak unfavorably about this beer. This is a very nice, malty and drinkable beer. It only set me back $3 for a bomber; a great deal for the quality of beer you get. I even like the label.

Ingame Enhancement +1
This was another Seattle beer sample. Next time this beer will be one I take home.

Overall 5/10

Despite the lower score this is a great malty brew. It was very easy drinking and surprisingly flavourful.
