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.

well balanced considering it’s abv. dark amber with a thin white head and nice lacing. very fruity, plums, citrus. it’s pretty malty with some notciable taste of coffee and chocoalte raisin. there is a bit a of a taste of alcohol, which is to be expected, but it is not unpleasant.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Bottled. Crystal clear orange color with a small white head. The aromas are of cherries and malt with hints of tartness. Huge caramel sweet flavor with a slight fruity tartness to it. Almost overpowering alcohol warmth hits you about halfway in and then stays on your tongue like a shot of bourbon.

heemer77 (5169) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2005
A dark gold with a little cloudiness. I may have shaken the bottle a little too much. A thin and strange looking white head. The aroma is peaches, apples and brandy. The taste has a strong spice of black pepper. Also some subtle peaches and vanilla. A hint of tartness of apples. A little light on the fruity and malty character. Also a little butterscotch and maple in the back of the throat. Decent, but far from the best in the style.

Reddish orange with white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Caramel city this is. Taste is sweet, butter, toffee, with mild alc finish not representative of 12%.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2004
(Bottled) Clear amber color with a smallish head. Very mild, sweetish-malty aroma with toffee hints. Quite strong - but not unpleasant - alcohol accent in the malty, fruity and sweetish, quite bitter flavor. Sugary, slightly alcoholic and bitter finish. Reasonably full-bodied, carbonated and brandyish palate. Reminds me of both Jenlain Ambree and Frederik Tosin (which have nothing in common, by the way :). Not as pleasant as the Noël, not does it hide the ABV quite as well.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2004
Great amber brew with a fine brilliance and with a creamy light-beige froth. Expressive nose with a fine malty accent, a touch of Baba au Rhum, some dried fruits like apricot, nuts and orangettes. Powerfull and creamy mouthfeel with some alcohol roundness and fine accents of buttercaramel, dried fruits, cakes and a touch of Grand Marnier. Faint bitterness in the afthertaste with a longlasting caramely aftherglow.

HermanW (1046) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2004
They tried to give a good balace between the taste and the alcohol. 12% is high . Tell me .... The taste of this beer is OK.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Large lasting white head on a deep golden hazy body. Bready toasted and caramel malt dominate at first, but diacetyl and nutty malt helps itself into the mix. some light clovey and raisiny, plum aromas follow w/ a ligh alcohol solventy character. Bready malt flavor at first, well balanced with some light sugary sweetness. Plums and a dry finish round it out for the flavor as well as light clove and hints of banana. finish is on the medium dry side. Aftertaste is toasty malt, like Cheerios! Medium body, creamy, well hidden alcohol, but lightly dry at the finish. Overall not a bad beer...possibly over rated, but not a bad beer.
