Alaskan -- Imperial Red Ale

There’s nothing impish or scuttling about the Imperial Red from Alaskan. It’s big, bold and even kingly, like the crab that rules the label.

A wave of rich malt on the pour brings a sea of hops -- aromatic as well as flavorful. If you’re a lover of caramel malts, this one’s good. If you’re an American hop lover, this one’s good.

The tan, billowing foam is just shy of oceanic. So if you like colorful and all-around sensuous beers, you’re also good to go.
