BRASSERIE CASTELAIN SAYS…
After brewing and fermentation, CH’TI beers is kept for long weeks in storage tanks. In the calm and cool (0°C) environment, the beer matures, develops a finer taste, perfects its aroma and acquires its natural and characteristic sparkles. It is here also that the beer obtains its balance, finesse and gleam.
When we decided to expand the horizons of the CH’TI range to some intense new aromas, the CH’TI Ambrée beer was born.
Selected as one of the ‘100 Best Beers in the World’ in a book of the same name by Michael Rudolf, CH’TI Ambrée will win you over with its tempting, copper colour.
Pleasant and refreshing initial taste. Harmonious balance between malt and hops. CH’TI Ambrée is a velvety, full-bodied beer. Subtle notes of grilled hazelnuts and brown sugar become apparent. An elegant beer, with a discreetly bitter aftertaste.
With my France trip coming to an end, this was the last French beer I tried, slightly weaker than a fair few others I had tried, although still brewed at a more than respectable 5.9%, CH’TI Ambrée, is lovely and fresh to the taste – the ingredients read as simply: water, barley, malts, sugar, hops.
