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.

oh6gdx (21811) - 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.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 6, 2007
Big bottle. Nice amber colour. Off-white head. Mildly roasted breadlike maltiness in the aroma. The flavour has a mild cookie-like maltiness, fruity and and a nice good touch of sweetness. Somewhat mild aftertaste.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2007
Bottle. Classic Biere De Garde. Nice big with fizzy head that quickly diminished. Amber colour. Aroma was very dry and light dusty with notes of fruit, caramel. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was nice balanced bitter and sweet. Slightly bitter finish.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from a local shop for local people. Deep, bright orange-amber w. creamy off-white head. Looks nice in my new snifter. Sweet aroma of corn bread and malts. Boring, watered down taste of spicy orange, toffee and hops. A bit of a let down and I wasn’t even expecting much.

Small head and sweet aroma. The flavor was sweet and malty but too watery.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Nice sweet banana on the nose with hints of tofee. The flavor once again as with the previous Ch’TI beer lacks. A little watery and overly sweet.

badgerben (4559) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours a dark amber color (duh) with a thin head. Strong sugary aroma and a way thicker malt hit than I expected from a Biere de Garde. Unfortunately, the taste did not live up to the invitation. It’s a very watery mess of weak malt and nothing else. Sad.
