Alaskan Amber

CIMG4137

The first thing you need to know about this beer is that it’s not technically an Amber Ale. It’s an Altbier. Alt means old, but what does that mean to you? Not much. It’s fermented slower and at a bit of a colder temp than than an “ale” would be.

Stats:
Altbier. 5.3% ABV. 18 IBUs. Alaska.

Nice dark amber color. The head doesn’t stick around very long.

Pretty nice nose. It’s actually pretty sweet with a vanilla and brown sugar thing. It’s also got this hint of strawberry that’s pretty nice.

Mouthfeel is light to medium body with a frothy carbonation.

Tastes like an amber ale. It’s a bit sweet with that brown sugar, vanilla thing I always get. You get some maraschino cherry. Hops make a slight appearance near the finish, with just a hint of bitterness.

Solid beer, but nothing special. 86 points.
