Unser Amberbier wird seit 1982 nur nach altbewährtem Rezept gebraut. Wir maischen noch traditionell mit mehrmaligem Teilmaischekochen – so entsteht das charaktertypische, leicht trinkbare Amberbier mit einer Stammwürze von 13,8 % und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,6%. Zu den Zutaten zählen helles und dunkles Gerstenmalz, Weizenmalz, Cara Pils und Münchner Caramalz, sowie Hallertauer Aromahopfen Tradition und Perle aus der Kartause Ittingen. Nur diese fein aufeinander abgestimmten Bestandteile garantieren unsere aromatische Bierspezialität – untergärig, einzigartig, Ittinger.

AndresTM (362) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2014
The pour is golden with an off-white head. Malts and some floral hops in the aroma. Oily, well-carbonated, light palate. The taste is adequately bitter with some hop spiciness showing up towards the end. Very refreshing.

Sigmund (5707) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
330 ml bottle. ABV is 5.6%. Clear deep golden to amber colour, moderate to low white head. Aroma of caramel malts, ripe berries and herbal hops, a hint of honey. Medium sweet flavour of caramel malts and brown bread, dry finish with some herbal hops and a hint of honey again. Okay, but did not blow my socks off.

McTapps (5574) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Pours out in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Nice nose of hops and nuts. Taste of mild and fresh hops, caramel, nuts, torf and vanilla. Hints of flowers. Very easy and nice to drink.

MichaelAwesome (5559) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Ein schön klassisches Vienna ohne Schmickschnack. Etwas Karamell, ein paar Nüsse und dazu noch eine erstaunliche Süffigkeit. Etwas derber als erwartet und ein leicht bitterer Abgang, doch alles in allem durchaus in Ordnung.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkle honigartige Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Aroma und Geschmack haben was von honig und würze. Bittere ist kaum vorhanden

JorgeLee (1410) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Bottle in the lounge at Geneva airport, watching Flipkens-Kvitova on the tv. Came out a flattish amber brown colour. A fairly typical malty take on a lager, sweetish, hint of sugary biscuit, hops a bit flabby. I sort of vacillated between mouthfulls thinking this is quite malty and ok or this is quite crappy. Dunno. Re-rate, on tap in Zurich airport. An odd beer that I only seem to have in Swiss airports during Wimbledon! This was much nicer on tap, the metallic taste completely absent, some sweetness but nice grainy maltiness. I’d give the draft 3.2, the bottle 2.5.

Clear amber color with medium off-white head. Aroma is grainy and malty, hints of hops. Flavor is malty with some bitterness at end.
