COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruegel is an easy drinking soft and tasty amber ale. Thanks to the refermentation it offers more body, more head and more taste than most other American and Belgian Amber ales. It is brewed with Dutch barley and German hops. Although the bitterness is clearly present, it is not dominant.

33cl bottle at Beer Garden, San Ġiljan, Malta. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruits, caramel and dried fruits with hints of Belgian yeast. Sweet, fruity and malty with a balanced bitterness. Easy to drink Belgian Ale, but nothing special. (2012-09-24)

Jasne belgijskie Ale. W smaku aromatyczne lekko gożkie, bało gazu. Ogólnie przyjemne w piciu. Mimo małej zawartości alkoholu jest rozgrzewające.

330 ml bottle. Nice Belgian ale but nothing really impressive. I still recommend it, it?s nice for a change

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 12, 2012
33cl bottle - contents just couldn’t wait to get out - quick pour to reveal a hazy amber brew with offwhite head and consistent lacing. Basement aromas to the nose. Caramel malts and perhaps toffee. Sweet, quite sweet especially on the lips. Full body, but texture is almost watery thin. makes me think of a weak Trippel, which I would deem a compliment. Burpy.

bobaidan (508) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours medium amber with a small head. Aroma is sweet with a hint of cherry. Medium in body with a bit of stickiness. Flavor is very sweet and unremarkable. A touch of fruity Belgian yeast keeps it drinkable.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2012
Dark red-brown colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Sweet chocolaty aroma with some grainy tone. Medium bodied. Flavor is more on roasted side with still grainy chocolate here, some yeasty-lemony note can also be found. Rather basic one.

callmemickey (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Hazy brown with a thick creamy tan head that slides down the glass at a nice pace.. S: Light apple and banana scent with some mellow soft malts and some clove spice T: Similar in taste as the smell would suggest... some fruits combine with the mellow malts and a dash of yeast... some alcohol comes through M: Light bodied with decent carbonation and some alcohol on the tongue O: Enjoyable but not as complex as one would like... good for a few before getting bored

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle from total wine. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. Mouthfeel is thicker then I was expecting. Not much on the tongue. It’s Belgian like Stella is Belgian.

solidfunk (4000) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Not bad. Some decent floral hops and a good head of foam on the pour. Colour isn’t that great but it’s an alright beer, as long as you’re not comparing it to the good Belgians.

33cl bottle. Nice clear bright amber color with a one finger white head and some lacing. The aroma is simple with honey as the dominant note. Some caramel and Belgian yeast behind it. The flavor is sweet with caramel and honey, Belgian yeast, and tea notes. Medium body with carbonation a little on the higher side. Solid stuff overall. Enjoyable.
