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.

Nothing special. One of the lesser Belgians that I have had. Why does it taste hot with a 5.2% ABV?

Sweet, syrupy and very carbonated. Good head. Reminds you more of a British ale than a Belgian.

Quite bitter but still sweet. The aroma is like sirup and so is the flavour. It’s a special beer with complezity and very differnet tastes.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2002
Amber clear with large creamy white chunky head generating scattered lace blobs. Very faint but pleasant floral, light bitter hops, and some reminders of decaying Belgian roadside ditch water algae aroma. Sprightly bitter start but fades rather quickly to more of a faintly sour flat English draft ale than a Belgian anything.

Another stumpy unattractive little bottle. I’m glad I am given this to try in a glass, because I wouldn’t want to be seen drinking out of this bottle. It looks like a beer bottle for babies or something. Weird. Anyhow...very large think head tastes more like a mix between an amber ale and a Belgian white - but not as good as a white. It’s like it is striving to be as good as a white - but it doesn’t quite make it. Slight fruitiness.

Dogbrick (9160) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Slightly above average Amber Ale. Thick lively head, orange/caramel color. Dry, somewhat bitter finish. I had trouble detecting much aroma in this.

Not bad, but nothing special. Pleasant orange-amber color, nice frothy head. Taste is a bit more sour than I like, and it’s much more carbonated than I like. Of this brewery’s products, I prefer Piraat to this by far.

A very light amber with good body. Better than most American ales but can’t hold up to the other offerings by Brouwerij Van Steenberge. Or robocop.

Malt and yeast smells. Peach shade, good head, continuous carbonation. Malt sweetness, small tongue tingle. Smooth. Pleasant, average.

A good but rather unassuming beer. Heavy on the carbonation, but a nice red color to it. A good beer, but perhaps not a first choice.
