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.

Sigmund (6378) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
330 ml bottle. ABV is 5.6%. Clear deep golden to amber colour, moderate to low white head. Aroma of caramel malts, ripe berries and herbal hops, a hint of honey. 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.

MichaelAwesome (6332) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Ein schön klassisches Vienna ohne Schmickschnack. Etwas Karamell, ein paar Nüsse und dazu noch eine erstaunliche Süffigkeit. Etwas derber als erwartet und ein leicht bitterer Abgang, doch alles in allem durchaus in Ordnung.
