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.

AndresTM (344) - 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.

Drank at the airport in Zurich nice colour not intense as the colour likes to suggest but drinkable and not a great hint of alcohol easy to drink

SinH4 (553) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Amber color with big head. Aroma is straightforward malts. Taste is sweet caramel malt, then bitter towards the end and a heavily metallic finish. Oh boy. Nothing special and not pleasant. Drinkable until you start swallowing.

MarkoNm (1023) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Slight caramel aroma, some hoppy notes and slightly smell/dusty. Taste is sweet and malty, a bit too much, a little caramel later on, finishing with an ok bitterness, but too sweet in the aftertaste again. Not really nice, to be fair.

eduardovl (999) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in its own tulip-like glass. A: Pours a beautiful and amber to copper color forming a big and bubbled white to yellow head. Good retention and many lacings left S: Roasted malts, toffee, caramel malts, notes of honey. Flowery and citrus Heineken style hops in the end T: Follows the nose. A slightly sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel, toffee and sweet grains. Notes of honey. A little bit metallic taste in the beginning. Hoppy balanced bitterness at the end. Despite of being an Amber Ale, I would dare to say that it uses Lager yeasts. As a matter of fact, I would call it an improved amber version of Heineken. Anyways, the yeasts profile is quite bready and not fruity as expected from an Ale M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Easy drinking. Not bad [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]

Rune (8827) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2014
330ml bottle bought at an EuroSpar store in Basel. Pours a clear amber coloured body. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Malt-fruity nose, grass and earth. Forest, grass, nuts, and caramel flavours, rather jam-like. Mostly sweet to the ending. Soft carbonated. Drinkable (hotel room, 28.07.2014).

Bottle 330ml (PBF IX)
Clear amber color, small white head. Grainy caramel aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Caramel, some grass, some harsh notes in the finish. Slightly bockish but somewhat industrial.

lusikka (6738) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
330 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of nuts, bread and earthiness. Flavour of strong raw bready maltiness, cardboard, mild bitterness and nuttiness. Light bodied and soft carbonation. Dry nutty and malty finish. Not good.
