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.

25cl bottle, at home @10°C Golden colour with white head. Sweet aroma with alcohol and spices. Flavour dominated by alcohol and hops but nice. Not the best strong ale I had but above average.

NJJereme (386) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Pours a cloudy amber color with a nominal off white head. An aroma of malt, toffee, and musty raisins with an analogous flavor. Medium bodied. Finishes easily. Not bitter. Strong alcohol content is apparent once it goes down. More of a sipping beer.

Sircatis (107) - FRANCE - SEP 17, 2016
Bière ambrée filtrée, avec une belle mousse épaisse. Forte en alcool (12°), mais ne se fait pas ressentir car très sucrée. Belle découverte, bière forte mais très bonne dégustation.

Mr_Pink_152 (3739) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle from Real Ale Store, Newark. Deep Amber colour with a off white head. Aroma banana, and toffee. Taste sweet and warming, you really get the alcohol. Thick body.

Ysok02 (1000) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Robe ambrée, mousse crémeuse peu abondante. Nez sur des notes épicées, fruitée, banane, caramel. Bouche plus ample, plus ronde, plus crémeuse que la blonde, avec une finale équilibrée. Une bière agréable.

dysenteri (130) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2016
33 cl bottle from Beergium. Pretty clear amber colour with off-white head. Aroma of bananabread, malts, caramel, sweet dried fruit, you can smell the alcohol in this one... Very sweet taste, caramel, banana esters. Light body, average carbonation. Overall too sweet and got not much else to offer.

mandaritto (239) - LATVIA - AUG 20, 2016

b33r (852) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2016
10/03/2016: Bright orange color, transparent and bubbly, with small tan head. Ariana and flavor have mostly Amber mLt notes. Flavor is creamy with very little alcohol presence. Smooth and tasty. I don’t know if that’s the best by date or bottled on date...

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle@Chapitre. Pours clear amber with beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with banana and ripe fruits and some alcohol. Taste is sweet and fruity with banana, ripe fruits and caramel maltyness. Alcohol coming clearly through, so not the best balance.

Brewhemia (193) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2016
Clear amber with white head. Lots of aroma of apples, pears and grapes. Seems a but artificially clear in its fruit aromas but still nice though. Lots of sweetness and banana flavor in the taste and tons of alchohol. The alcohol is way to dominating I think. It’s all that lingers in the finish. Not very balanced or charming I think.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Punertavanoranssi, vahvasti kupliva olut paksulla, pienikuplaisella valkoisella vaahdolla, joka jättää hieman pitsiä jälkeensä. Tuoksu mieto, hieman karamellinen, hedelmäinen ja raikkaan oloinen. Maku varsin alkoholimainen varsinkin jälkipuraisultaan. Sitä ennen makeaa täyteläistä maltaisuutta, karamellia ja mausteista katkeroa. Alkoholi kuitenkin jyrää lopulta kaiken muun turhan voimakkaasti. Mausteinen ja alkoholin myötä pitkään lämmittävä jälkimaku.
