COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2011
On draught at Zeughauskeller. This brew pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium foamy white head that recedes slowly. Sticky small patches of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma with some yeasty notes in the background. Light body with flavors of bready malt, fruit, grassy hops and a bit of yeast. The finish is fruity and sweet. Fairly average overall.

Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Auch dieses Bier gehört zu Heineken wie das Etikett am Flaschenkopf verrät. Auf den Etiketten und auch auf der Internetseite wird wert darauf gelegt, dass es ein Amber-Bier ist, das erste schweizer Amber-Bier. Es riecht frisch und sehr getreidig, im Glas schäumt es wenig. Der würzige Mittelteil ist leider auch ewas wässrig, während der Nachgeschmack mit seinem röstmalzigen und leicht nussigen Aroma etwas besser dasteht. Ansonsten muss man sagen, dass das vom Bierbaron gepostete Bierprofil soweit eingehalten wird. Kein schlechtes Bier, es könnte aber ruhig noch etwas aromatisches sein, der Nachgeschmack dürfte auch etwas länger im Mund liegen. Test vom 10.12.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,11,8,8,11 - 10,35
