Shoutout to Maurice for leaving this one at my place.

We all know that I love amber ales. This beer is not an exception to that rule. With the traditional amber color and smooth taste, this beer is as good at it looks. This beer comes all the way from Alaska into your glass just so you can enjoy it as much as I do. I suggest really swirling this one in your mouth to taste all the flavors.

I’d highly recommend this beer to anyone. It’s a easygoing beer to drink and anyone can enjoy it. Alaskan Brewing Co. says it’s “Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored “alt” style beer notably well balanced.” Whatever they do to make it, they shouldn’t stop.

Cheers!

Sorry folks, no photo of this one. (I was too ashamed to take a photo of my beer while sitting at the bar.)

Traveling in Pittsburgh, I stumbled upon a nice burger spot called BRGR. I tried a few beers and this one was my favorite. With a sweet and caramel aroma, this one went down great. It has a nice amber and caramel color to it. The aftertaste was semi-sweet and made you want to keep drinking it. I was a big fan of this one.

Blue Point says, “Toasted Lager’s balanced flavor of malt and hops makes for easy drinking and our special proprietary lager yeast produces an exceptional, long-lasting smooth finish.” Blue Point is based out of Long Island in New York. Overall, great beer and I’d love to have it again.
