Alaskan Brewing Company Alaskan Pale

Alaskan PaleI have heard good things about Alaskan Brewing Company, and their Web site list the many awards their beers have won. I recently had a pint of Alaskan Pale at a local restaurant, and was kind of disappointed. It was ok, but not great. I found the taste lacking in distinctiveness, and it left me wondering what all they hype is about. The restaurant served the beer ice cold, but the taste didnít impress me even after it warmed up a bit. Iím anxious to try some of Alaskanís other beers; hopefully theyíll impress me more than Alaskan Pale.

The Alskan Summer Ale had a fruity taste to it which was delicious.

I used to live in Alaska, when Alaskan was still a microbrew, and they had great flavor in all their beers. I ranted and raved about the amber, and I got pretty excited when I saw it down here. The newer, mass produced amber is a little less tasty, but it's still really good, the seasonals are really good too.
