COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Gruut" is an ancient Flemish coin. In medieval Ghent, brewers used Gruuts to pay taxes on the richness of their brew. Gentse Stadsbrouwerij has revived this ancient tradition with Gruut Amber Ale. Enjoy it’s rich taste, deep copper color, and smooth-drink-ability.

Clear reddish amber beer. Tidy off white head. Smooth palate, crispy trailing edge. Creamy malt, pretty sweet. Candy and a trace of banana. Semi dry creamy finish. A bit clunky but drinkable.

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 13, 2012
(From notes 7 Oct, 2012) Tap. Beautiful, clear amber color. Not much head, at least this time. It’s a bit sweet/malty, some herbs obviously (but what, I can’t tell). Feels watery. I tried this immediately as I saw it, knowing it is produced without hops. It was okay as a curiosity, but not something I would have again.
