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.

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.

On tap. Tight white head with trailing lace-am er. A-caramel, spice/metallic. T-spice hops, grain/hay-some caramel.

Bov (11737) - 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

Dogbrick (11180) - 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.

Amber with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with straw, husk. Sweetish malty with a touch of fruit

Rune (10927) - 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).

shrubber85 (10359) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 17, 2007

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2010
330 ml bottle. From Rickenbach bei Wil, Switzerland.
Clear amber colour with small off-white head. Sweet roasted malt, nuts and notes of diacetyl in aroma. Sweet malts, nuts, diacetyl and some bitter hops in flavour. A tiny bit artificial aroma and flavour after all.
