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.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 3, 2007
A golden-orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is malty with hints of caramel. A rather weak nose. The taste is nicely bready and dry and has a good hop character. Some caramel, brown sugar and butter in the taste. Medium bodied. The finish is dry. A rather drinkable beer without being special, this brew lacks in strength.

SinH4 (2530) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2015
Amber color with big head. Aroma is straightforward malts. Taste is sweet caramel malt, then bitter towards the end and a heavily metallic finish. Oh boy. Nothing special and not pleasant. Drinkable until you start swallowing.

Nickls (2357) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Light amberish hue with a white head that is very small. Lightly sweet maltiness in both flavor and aroma. Light earthy hop finish, but barely shows up enough. Thinner to medium body. Decent, drinkable, and nothing ’off’.

MarkoNm (2299) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Slight caramel aroma, some hoppy notes and slightly smell/dusty. Taste is sweet and malty, a bit too much, a little caramel later on, finishing with an ok bitterness, but too sweet in the aftertaste again. Not really nice, to be fair.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Bier im Glas hat einen schönen Rotstich. Das Aroma ist sehr fein würzig und malzig. Zum Ende hin schmeckts etwas alkoholisch, aber es wird nicht zu penetrant. Alles in allem ein recht gut trinkbares Amber Bier aus der Schweiz...
