Aux allures cuivrées, la CH’TI Ambrée dégage des arômes de malts subtilement torréfiés. Ses qualités ont été récompensées par la médaille d’Or lors de la Sélection Mondiale de la bière en 2003 à Bruxelles et par la médaille d’argent lors du Concours Général Agricole de Paris en 2004. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, nous vous conseillons de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 8 °C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé.

Bottle from Intermarche, Nr Boulogne, France. Orange amber with an off white head. Sweet date malt aroma. The taste is spicy, yeasty caramel with a sharp bitter finish. Easy drinking brew, but you feel slightly let down. Something is missing.

Not bad. It might be a little oxidized, but only a little bit. Aroma has yeast as well. Flavor is a balance of sweet malt like a dark Belgian ale with yeast and light spice. Cloudy, light brown appearance with some sediment. These Ch’ti beers aren’t bad, but far too expensive. I only paid $5 for this and it is a good value at that price.

oh6gdx (21544) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Bottled. Coppery amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramel, slight mustardyness and raisins. Flavour is big malts along with some slight raisins in it. Quite watery. The aroma was more promising...

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottled 01-13-06. Pours a hazy, amber color with an off-white, average-sized, pillowy head; the head is mostly diminshing leaving minimal lace. Nose is fairly nice with notes of toffee, raisin, some apricot, lightly toasted caramels, and a grainy yeast note. Flavor is a bit of a letdown; notes of grainy malts and toffee with faint raisins and figs and a floral bitterness that almost seems disassociated from the malt notes. Palate is almost medium, lively, and silky smooth; nice feel, but not as round or full as great examples of the style. Finishes with a decent bitterness after most of the sweetness disappears with lingering notes of toffee, faint yeast, and a mild warmth. Not a bad example of a dying style, but lacked complexities, unique character, and the bold rich mouthfeel of perfect examples of the style. A bit like a watered down version of the style but still approachable and pleasant.
