COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rader Ambrée is the subtle aromatization of a beer brewed in the ancient-way, re-fermented in its bottle, with a distillate of grain which has undergone a prolonged ageing process in oak casks. The primary fermentation is made with the same selected grains for the mash tubbing and the distillate. The distillate, aged in oak casks, is then added to the mash tub just before the re-fermentation in the bottle.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2005
Bottled. Slightly murky brown colour. Medium, foamy head, which is quite lacey. Caramelly, malty aroma. No genever aroma, yet. Good. Tastes caramelly, sweet and malty and ends in a quite bitter finish. Juniper is hardly noticeable. Again, good! It´s really a nice ambree, but maybe a bit bland.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2005
Bottled. Sweet malts and gin aroma. Amber color, fine particals floating around, white head, very nice lace. Sweet, malty, gin well present in the flavor but not annoying, light apple, warming and soft. I was expecting much less, not bad at all.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Hmm. That commercial description is incomprehensible... Somewhat shy, husky, grainy aroma with herbal hops, sweet vanilla and some notes of alcohol. Clear blonde body with fine carbonation is topped by a dense, fine-bubbled, white head that recedes slowly to lasting cover with some very nice lacing. Sweet nutty flavours are balanced with herbal and earthy hops with some vanilla and wood-like notes. Alcohol comes to the fore in the finish, then subsides to a floral aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation that is strongly effervescent. Complex and interesting if not quite a show-stopper. Bottle (Bieropholie Dec. 2004).

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2005
Light hazy aber color with light colored head. Soft aroma’s of malts, buttercaramels, some fruits and vanilla pudding. Soft mouthfeel with touch of crème brullée, malts, buttertoffee, some dried apricot, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cognac. THe high alcohol is well integrated in this softtasting beer.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy amber color with floating yeast clumps. Slightly sour aroma, slightly alcoholic and cardboardy. Somewhat sweet, toffeeish flavor with some genever feeling. Medium-bodied, quite low-carbonated, slightly alcoholic palate. Hides the ABV very well. Not nearly as genevery as the blonde, but still quite pleasant and drinkable.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2005
Best before Feb. 2005. Bought 1.5 yrs ago. Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Aroma of rising bread and alcohol. Sharp alcoholic gin in mouth, with fresh finish. Some citrus notes. I remember this beer as being sweeter initially, now it is smoother.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle Sparkling, amber body. Frothy-rocky, white head. Bad lace. Yeasts, alcohol and hints of hops in the aroma. Moderately bitter, light sweet initial flavour. Alcohol is present too. Bad choice.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2004
Amber color with some golden hues. Aroma of sitrus and spices. Nice alcohol and citrus flavors, the alcohol isn’t too dominating even if its 10.5%. Bitter finish. Interesting but not very good.
