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.

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...

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - 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 (1891) - Washington, Washington DC, 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’.

JorgeLee (1298) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
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.

500 mL glass at Zurich Airport Center Bar. Amber with some gas and a fair head. Bitter, dry, malty and alright.

OllieBBommel (1151) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle@home, 50cl. White foam head, shrinking. Light amber color. Aroma malt. Taste some hops, some bitter. Palate light, watery, sticky. Overall a little too sweet for me.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in its own tulip-like glass. A: Pours a beautiful and amber to copper color forming a big and bubbled white to yellow head. Good retention and many lacings left S: Roasted malts, toffee, caramel malts, notes of honey. Flowery and citrus Heineken style hops in the end T: Follows the nose. A slightly sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel, toffee and sweet grains. Notes of honey. A little bit metallic taste in the beginning. Hoppy balanced bitterness at the end. Despite of being an Amber Ale, I would dare to say that it uses Lager yeasts. As a matter of fact, I would call it an improved amber version of Heineken. Anyways, the yeasts profile is quite bready and not fruity as expected from an Ale M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Easy drinking. Not bad [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]
