Amber Johannes is a Heller Bock from Polish family brewery, Amber. Based just outside Gdansk in northern Poland, Amber brewery was founded in 1994 after the collapse of the Gdansk Brewery the previous year. Amber produces a range of beers, from traditional Polish styles to modern international beer styles. Amber Johannes is a strong lager or Heller Bock, and a proportion of the proceeds of each beer sold goes to the Gdansk Museum, contributing to preserving Polish culture.
Amber Johannes pours a rich amber colour, offering up aromas of malt and bready yeast. The flavour is rich and intense, with a clean finish thanks to the long conditioning time of this special lager. At 6.5% ABV, Amber Johannes stands up against roasted and heavily spiced meat, as well as gamey flavours such as venison.
