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.

For an industrial beer, it is not so bad. The colour is similar as a English pale ale. The carbonation is regular and foam is classical. There is a nice balance between the hop and the malt and there is one side of caramel or sweet coming from the process with the malt. It is a beer outside if the classical Swiss lager.

Drank at the airport in Zurich nice colour not intense as the colour likes to suggest but drinkable and not a great hint of alcohol easy to drink
