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 :(

Troebel geel kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Zoet van smaak niet echt een top biertje. Gedronken met Bryan.

Slightly hazy golden with a medium white bubbly head. Aroma is sweet, caramel with some yeasty notes. Flavor is fruity esthers with some caramel malts and a short bittersweet aftertaste. Medium to light palate. Ok, but nothing to wriye home about.

Scopey (8235) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle at Salisbury’s Arms, Malta. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasted grain, orange, candied peel, natural yoghurt and cereal. The taste is bitter-sweet, brown bread, grassy bitterness, orange peel, earth and some spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough Belgian Ale.

Alengrin (2872) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Basic Belgian ale primarily intended for export and therefore relatively hard to find on the Belgian market. Thick, off-white, regular, sticky, stable foam, colour a darkish and brownish peachy blonde, cloudy. Yeasty aroma, bready malts, toast, cookie dough, hazelnut paste, coriander, dill seed, lemon peel, cream, nutmeg, bark. Crispy malty taste, cookie- and nut-like, strong, tingling carbonation, subtle but nevertheless pointy, citrussy acidity, probably caused by mild infection but not too disturbing; finish dryish, but could have been hoppier. In all, not that bad (for a Van Steenberge at least).

Bottle @ benzai. Hazy amber with a small to medium sized white head. Smells very sweet, malts. Tastes malts, sweet and very weird. Can’t put my finger on it. Medium body, soft carbo.
