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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2002
A clear copper color on the pour, the head planetary, creamy, long lasting, the lace in massive sheets that cling to the end of the glass. Nose is malt, caramel, over ripe fruit sweetness also noticed. Start is lightly sweet, malt, top is slight, the finish is adequately hopped, acerbic, long lasting dry aftertaste. Ranks #821 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2002
Bottle Conditioned. Yellow, huge carbonation - foam went everywhere. Light in comparison to the Augustijn which I sampled on the same evening. Pretty unreamarkable.

Medium amber color, large head. A lighter bodied amber ale. Lightly roasted malts, slightly hoppy. Somewhat spicy. Clean taste. Mild flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Not as strong in flavor or kick as I like Belgian ales to be. Decent all the same. Would have been a great beer had it had a bit more spiciness to it. The finish was a bit rough although bearable.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2002
Light amber with a medium creamy head. Weak aroma, but some sweet maltyness is detectable. The taste lasts half a second, it is not a bad taste, just way too short.

Appearance is promising, nice head and colour. Aroma is okay, taste is quite simple, but okay.

Not really much of a Belgian, and it calls itself an amber for what its worth. Still, I was a little dissapointed by this one as I have grown to expect more from Belgium. It is a good tasting beer, and really not all that bad. Just it’s local competition is mich better.
