About the label from Alaskan Brewing – Polar bears are native to the Arctic Ocean and can be found traversing through the snow, ice and open waters along the northern coastlines of Alaska. Although closely related to the brown bears of Alaska, the polar bear is classified as a marine mammal adapted to the icy climate of the Arctic. Alaskan White Ale toasts this extraordinary bear and its place at the top of the world.
Alaskan Brewing Co. – Alaskan White – Poured into a pint glass – 5.3% abv.
Appearance: Pours a yellow gold that is for the most part translucent, with some noticeable cloudiness. The head goes from a inch of foamy suds to a 1/4 inch of white bubbles.
Aroma: Banana, coriander, orange rind, sweet wheat.
Taste: A wonderful balance of mild hops, and some sweat malted wheat.
Mouthfeel: Thin yet heavy. Not nearly as heavy as an American Wheat.
Overall: Highly flavorful, heavier than it looks, and very tasty. I feel as if this is a hybrid of an American and Belgian Wheat Beer.
