Jenlain - AmbreeFrench Lager
Created in 1922, this top fermented beer is the source of the Brasserie Duyck's great renown.
With 7.5% alcohol by volume, this unpasteurized beer is made with 3 different types of malt produced from French barley, and 3 varieties of hops grown in Alsace.
It is the torrefied malt that gives it its attractive amber glow and many-hued aroma.
With a maltier and more rugged taste than classic beers, Jenlain is best drunk at between 6 and 8 degrees centigrade.
It's generous taste lingers pleasantly in the mouth while its malty, autumnal bouquet, floral note and hints of caramel, stewed prunes and lightly toasted malt make it an ideal ingredient in many dishes.
It was awarded the "Diploma of Merit and National Prestige" in 1993 by the Comite de France and the Comite du Bon Gout Francais, and recently won a Bronze Metal at the 2004 Agricultural Show.
