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.

Rune (8006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2014
330ml bottle bought at an EuroSpar store in Basel. Pours a clear amber coloured body. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Malt-fruity nose, grass and earth. Forest, grass, nuts, and caramel flavours, rather jam-like. Mostly sweet to the ending. Soft carbonated. Drinkable (hotel room, 28.07.2014).

Wanja (617) - GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
0.33 l bottle at Eschborn... Interesting amber color, average head... Quite intensive malt aroma, okay, but nothing special... Standard Amber beer... Unspecial ending...

loco_gallego (42) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Ambrée, bonne carbonation. Mousse couleur caramel assez persistante. Nez malté légèrement fruité. Goût "mousseux" et fruité, puis subtilement houblonné. Fin de bouche sèche, assez agrèable. Lager intéressante

goochflies (50) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2014
Poured Brown/Amber with a fast dissipating white head. Malty, with slightly sweet aroma. Bready, and malty with decent hoppiness. Dry finish. Nice Lager. I’ll have another thanks. (But only because i got a sixer on sale)...
