Brand bierbrouwerij is de oudste brouwerij in Nederland. Liefde voor het brouwersvak en een hecht gevoel voor traditie staan bij Brand voorop. Brand Imperator is een amberkleurig bier met een volmondige moutsmaak en een uitgebalanceerde hopbitterheid.

25cl draft at Cafe Loetje, Amsterdam on 24-Sep-2015. Clear amber pour with a nice creamy head. Aroma of sweet malty biscuit and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of barley, sweet malt - some cookie dough and spices. Not bad, but a full bodies bock, suitable for the European autumn.

The beer pours a modest layer of almond colored foam. The beer has a beautiful amber color and is very clear. The beer has a cellar smell, just like the German Altbeer. It is bitter and a little penetrant, not in a bad way. It also reminds a little of wood. The taste is nice. It also tastes like Altbier, and has a little wood taste. There is a hint of stout/porter, caused by the roasted barley. This porter/stout like sensation is also present in the smell. It is quite unique. The beer gives a mouth filling sensation and has a nice tingle. There is a little raisin and bread taste as well. Nice.

Amberkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht hoppig bitter en wat zoet metheel lichte rookachtige invloeden caramel. Niet echt bitter maar gewoon goed.

Iets donker biertje, smaak is zoet en licht fruitig. Heeft niet het bittere van brand wat het normaal wel heeft. Lekker biertje

Alengrin (3675) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Famed bottom-fermented (so German style) dark Bock from an established brewery in the southeastern Netherlands. Clear orangey copper colour, indeed looking a lot like the average German Bock, under a thinnish, lacing, yellowish light beige head. Aroma of cookie dough, warm toasted bread, butterscotch, bourbon, hazelnuts, ’speculoos’, dried cranberries, leather, baked banana, biscuit, straw, tea, earthy hops, iron. Taste begins sweetish, clean, caramelly, nutty, with a light sourish touch and medium carbonation; low fruitiness as expected from a lager, the basic fruitiness from the malts aside. In the middle, the malty sweetishness continues, becoming a bit doughy and bitterishly toasted, bit metallic, lean and supple mouthfeel, leading to a finish of earthy and leafy hops (but subdued, as expected from the style), lingering malt sweetness and some warming, brandy-like alcohol, though in all still well hidden; sourishness continues in a gentle way, as well as the sweetness, which manages to stay under the ’cloying’ level. In all, this is a technically well-made lager Bock, without any noteworthy flaws. A good introduction to the style, and justly a kind of classic.

Een gezoet bier, met schuim dat snel wegtrekt. Misschien te kenmerken als een lichte bockvariant.
