COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was created in 1933 by Alfred Dubuisson, grand-father of the present family brewer, Hugues. Its former name was "Bush Beer 24°" (the density in Ballings), but today it is known as Bush Amber. Its amber colour is due to the use of caramel malt in the production process. Its bitter sweet taste provides it with firmness and personality. What's more, it helps digestion.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 crystal clear amber and thin white topping..aroma was a banana induced belgian yeast fest..chewy sweet, yeasty, yet almost adjuncty..hides alcohol well though..has a creamy mouthfeel yet is too sweet..mind numbing alcoholic warmth...for 12% though, its really not all that bad..

jerohen (2058) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Nice nose, but the taste is just pure alcohol. Pure alcohol with an unpleasant dry finish. Not my kind of beer.

radiomgb (2463) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Copper coloured. Strong alcohol aroma and floral hops. Tasted too strong of alcohol to taste much but I did pick up on some caramel notes near the bottom of the glass. Slight burn of alcohol in the mouth, had a warming effect but I guess that’s what you get for 12%. Overall not bad.

skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2002
Weak sweet fruity aroma. Amber colour, quickly disappearing head. Sweet malt and hoppy, nice but too alcholic, I can burn my aftertaste...

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2002
Cidre Aroma. Fruity alcoholic taste, the body is like Calvados. It burns on the palate. Finish is dry.

Looks great, nice clarity. Initial sweetness, the alcohol is overpowering. This is not complex but one-dimensional. However, after two bushes back to back at least you know you’ve been drinking.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2002
Light hazy orange appearance with a little head. Thick, sweet malty nose with touches of peach and various other fresh fruits and alcohol. Very sweet malty body which is characteristic of high ABV brews. Thick mouthfeel, alcohol notes and a touch of hops in the finish. An interesting brew, more remeniscent of a barley wine than a belgian strong, and a bit one sided, but good.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A beutiful amber beer with an OK head. The aroma is very nice fruity with hints of alcohol. It has a great filling feel and the flavor is fruits - You can’t make out the alcohol. A really good beer.
