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.

Bummer. Bottle is best before end of March 2013. Pours dirty blonde with a fugly head with huge bubbles. Smell is light cloves and a wood-like (madeira) aroma makes an appearance too. Hops are nowhere to be found neither in nose or mouth. Taste is cardboard, some belgian sugar and a little spices. This beer is dead I think. RIP :(

Lilja (2185) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Flaska frĺn Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av karamell, belgisk jäst, torkad frukt, brunt socker, honung med toner av lönnsirap. Stor sötma, rund och len, lätt beska. Hade tjänat pĺ lagring dĺ den är alldeles för söt.

YantarCoast (511) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 10, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is malty and slightly smokey. Taste is sour, malt, wood. Seems like something is wrong with my bottle.

Leighton (14391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle shared in London - with Lyoli. Pours totally clear gold, effervescent, with a creamy white head. Pleasant lightly toasted biscuits in the aroma, subtle Belgian yeast, candi sugar. Medium sweet flavor with lightly dried, bready malts, light toffee, faint dried berries, dates, very slight leafy hops. Light to medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with simple but tasty bready malts, candi sugars, Belgian yeast, banana chips, lightly toasted toffee. Fairly basic but not bad overall.

susonagger (98) - spain, - MAY 12, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Descripción Bruegel Amber ale recibe su nombre en honor del famoso pintor del siglo XVI Pieter Bruegel. Se eligió una parte del cuadro “El baile de los mendigos” para ilustrar la etiqueta de la cerveza, que refleja la vida cotidiana de esa época, donde la cerveza era una parte esencial de los habitantes de esa zona que más tarde, en el siglo XVIII se llamaría Bélgica. NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Dorada ambarina. - Aroma: Aroma a galleta, ligeros recuerdos de plátano. - Cuerpo/sabor: Ofrece más cuerpo, más espuma y más gusto que la mayoría de las estadounidenses y cervezas belgas Ámbar. Se elabora con cebada neerlandesa y lúpulo alemán. A pesar de que la amargura está claramente presente, no es dominante.

ForlornHope (206) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a large white head which quickly fades away. Aroma is malty. Taste is sweet to start with a light bitterness. Quite carbonated. Overall, not bad, an inoffensive drinker.
