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.

culchiem (2847) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2011
Amber with a medium sized lasting head. Aroma is of sweet malt and caramel. Flavour is very sweet with a sugary roasted malt finish. A bit too sweet for me

Nickls (1926) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Light amberish hue with a white head that is very small. Lightly sweet maltiness in both flavor and aroma. Light earthy hop finish, but barely shows up enough. Thinner to medium body. Decent, drinkable, and nothing ’off’.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2010
(draught at a hotel pub in Zonz) Clear, pale amber colour with a short off-white foamy head. Sourish and slightly fruity, almost ascorbic nose with dusty elements. Sour and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a mild carbonation. Dusty malty and tart taste; slim and sourish malty finish with absence of any bitterness. Horrible, most probably infected. 03.VIII.09

Amber reddish color with no head what so ever. Well carbonated with large bubbles. Malty and fruity fresh aroma. Fresh bubbly, lightly dry malty flavor with hints of hops and apples. Sweet malty on the palate with nice hoppy tones. Finishes with a long lasting hoppy aftertaste. very enjoyable.
