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.

I found this to be an outstanding beer, but I had it after an especially bad stout so my vision may be tainted.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminsihing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Not pleasant.

One of the better amber ales I’ve had. Very buttery taste, though. Aftertaste little to be desired.

Slightly nutty. Hints of butterscotch and rum. Mildly bitter. Well balanced. Gets better as you drink it. :)

Great version of an Amber. Interesting taste, not too bitter, not too dry. Great balance, good head.

Very much like a lighter, dryer version of my favorite Van Steenberge, Piraat. Well balanced and delicious.
