Mit Austrian Amber Ale gibt er weiterhin den Trend zum Spezialitäten- und Genussbier vor. Er hat in seinem Salzburger Brauhaus Gusswerk seine neue „single step infusion mash“ nach irischem Vorbild kreiert. Englische Ale-Hefe punktet mit angenehm fruchtigen Aromen, der original Bio-Hopfen aus den USA (Sorte Cascade und Summit) unterlegt es mit feinem Bitterton, bombastisches Citrus-Grapefruit Aroma verleiht dem Genuss-Bier seine einzigartige Frische. single step infusion mash, 5,6 %vol Alk., Stammwürze: 12,8° Stw.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, - NOV 20, 2012
33cl bottle from Bierzwerg. - Fresh but too watery "ale" with modest doses of en vogue AngloSaxon hops and Heimweh after its Austrian Vienna/Märzen-tradition -> result is an interesting, but forgettable crossover experiment in style.

ninecats (102) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at Liseberg, Gothenburg. Hazy bronze with a quickly dissipating two finger white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy with pine and grass, a moderate malty tone of caramell. Taste is about the same, a fairly good grassy hop profile with zest, oranges, backed up by a light sweeter malt figure. Minerals and yeast, slight wattery. Ends rather dry, with a lingering bitterness. Medium body, soft to medium carbo. Quite good, thirst quenching.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2014
0.33 l bottle at Timo A’s. Amber color. Sweet caramelly and floral aroma. Caramelly, raisiny, floral and toffeish taste, yet not sweet. Rounded palate. Plain amber ale, this is not my style.

Saeglopur (251) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle from Kalea Bierkalender. Amber, hazy body with medium, frothy, white head, that won’t last very long. Aroma of yeast, grapefruit, hay, grass, earth, some honey, little red fruits. Taste of grapefruit, bread, grass, roasted malt, bitterness, some fruitiness. Medium to thin mouthfeel, with a medium bitter, citric and slightly earthy finish. Not bad, good to drink, but nothing special.

GoufCustom (745) - HONG KONG - JAN 9, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Lafaco & Co’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during Hong Kong Food Festival 2013.

Cloudy hazy amber honey colour with lots of dirt-like yeast sediments; One and half finger head and crumpet off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent good sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of grapefruit and ale malt, plus faint pineapple, honey, caramel, molasses, toffee, orange and yeast; Pleasant mid to light sweet taste of ale malt, with light grapefruit, light toffee, light honey, crackers, yeast, strong pine, light liquorices, strong lemony lime and sharp grassy hops; Full body, slick and slight oily palate; Taste profile is malty, heavily-hopped Amber Ale, grapefruit pine tree and grassy hops are really dominant, almost like American micro IPAs, but tastes are not too varied. Intense but not over the top. Pretty good… Hoppiness is fragrant grapefruit and grassy nose, fruity, piney and strong grassy hop taste. Liquorices is potent, for a licking and lasting astringent finish; Quite dry after taste; Hoppy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is an organic Amber but smell and taste more like an American craft IPA, with Cascade and Summit are utilized with good effect. Also fairly good caramel and toffee elements here. Pretty single-minded but well-made and enjoyable all the way. More than above average and recommended!

tmzl (82) - SLOVENIA - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014
Look: Pours with equal thick off-white 2 thumbs high foam. It’s stable, slow retention, leaves moderate lacing. Slightly cloudy, carbonation visible. Color is lighter chestnut amber. The bottle label looks terrible.

Smell: Some piney, grapefruit hop and caramel, toffee malt notes. Hints of something synthetic, earthy at start.

Taste: Mostly bitter hops. Hints of grapefruit, piney bitterness - well, mostly just this, feels empty, almost no taste in the middle from malts, maybe some light roast, sweetness. Ends with medium bitterness, which stays for a while.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, nearly medium body. Easy, fresh but pointless.

Overall: An OK beer, but totally forgettable and kinda empty. Can’t say I’ll try it again. Don’t be bothered with it.

Bottle from Meinl in Wien. Amber colored beer with medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma with tangerines and oranges, caramel. Taste, caramel malt, grapefruit,tangerines, orange zest, hints of honey. Light hoppy finish. Refreshing beer.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2013
from Erzbierschof - hazy amber-bronze beer with a little long lasting foam; fair aroma of spicy hops, hints of star fruits; tasty and quite full-bodied, a solid bitterness, long lasting spicy and herbal hoppy finish; fairly dry - very good one

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Pours muddy brown color with small frothy light brown head, fair lacing and with tiny yeast particles. Aroma of bread with additional toasted and caramel notes, light hoppy with notes of pine, lemon and grapefruit with heavy yeastiness in the end. Taste starts with rich and strong sweetness, followed by sour yeastiness and finished with harsh bitterness and long aftertaste. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Good one, completely met my expectations...
