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.

Grima (2182) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, 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...

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2011 330 ml bottle on a train in Germany. Pours a clear amber color, a thick white lasting head, Aroma is butter and caramel, Taste is a nice sweet and light bitter dry malty dry flavor. Palate is smooth.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle, Hooters, Zurich. Poured a true amber colour with a smallish white head. Sweet malty/caramel aroma. Similar tale to the flava but with some hop presence leading to a dryish finish. Tolerable.

Nickls (1956) - Kingstowne, 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’.

Russo (1843) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2013

CH-303 (1620) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - APR 7, 2009
Appearance: Orange brown golden. Interesting colour. OK amount of white head. Aroma: Honey, some light malt. Taste: Nice maltiness, slightly sweet and fruit. Some hops. Very good. Info: 330ml bottle, 6/4-2009

JorgeLee (1410) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Bottle in the lounge at Geneva airport, watching Flipkens-Kvitova on the tv. Came out a flattish amber brown colour. A fairly typical malty take on a lager, sweetish, hint of sugary biscuit, hops a bit flabby. I sort of vacillated between mouthfulls thinking this is quite malty and ok or this is quite crappy. Dunno. Re-rate, on tap in Zurich airport. An odd beer that I only seem to have in Swiss airports during Wimbledon! This was much nicer on tap, the metallic taste completely absent, some sweetness but nice grainy maltiness. I’d give the draft 3.2, the bottle 2.5.

MarkoNm (1308) - 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.

prawlie (1267) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
500 mL glass at Zurich Airport Center Bar. Amber with some gas and a fair head. Bitter, dry, malty and alright.
