Found the Alaskan Amber (Alaskan Brewing Co., Juneau Alaska) at the local beer store (John’s Grocery) and so far it was a great intro in getting ready for Spring beers. The Alaskan Amber had a lager-like smoothness with a sturdy malt fullness. I would have to say it was easy drinking and refreshingly light. Sweet malt in the aroma, with some ale-like fruitiness, but the flavor is long, smooth and pure. It all finishes off with a hint of sweetness giving way to a wine-like dryness.
I’m going to Alaska in a couple of weeks, so I can’t wait to try out some more offerings from Alaskan Brewing Co.!
Have you tried the Alaskan Amber? What did you think?
