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.

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.

On draught at a Zurich airport hotel. Malt, a hint of smoke, crisp herbal finish. Too thin - a stonger version of this could have been a great beer!
