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.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2012
from Coop - clear and bright amber beer with a little chaotic foam left; shy aroma of caramel and flowers; medium-bodied and slightly astringent; some harsh bitterness; hints of red fruits and flowery hops in a short finish - meaningless

FatPhil (9121) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2010
Keg (Brasserie Federale, Zurich)
Nondescript dusty aroma. Pale orange, some head. Sweet malts in the aroma too. Some beer in the taste - it’s even got some fruity esters and a hint of roast malts in the retronasals. Taste pretty plain, but recognisably made of beer ingredients. Finish a bit papery. Best of the pale ones in the 7-glass sampler, but still not good.

MoritzF (8402) - 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

Dogbrick (7627) - 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.

shrubber85 (7306) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle. Sweet berry malt aroma. Amber color with minimal head. Sweet, syrupy malt flavor with a hint of cherry and mild bitter herbal hops finish. Not quite cloying but close.
