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.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, 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.

Medium sweet flavour of caramel malts and brown bread, dry finish with some herbal hops and a hint of honey again. Okay, but did not blow my socks off.
