COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nice red colored Amber Ale, light "fruity". Brewery in Gent is nice to visit. First heard of it while watching "Tournee Generale".

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Mooie heldere bruine kleur. Geen schuim, redelijk wat koolzuur. Ruikt naar hoestdrank, zoet, karamel. Smaakt erg lekker, zoet en bitter. Winterbier!

Tayeth (195) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Geruch schwach aber sehr ansprechend nach Malz, Molasse-Sirup und Honig. Der Geschmack ist deutlich stärker mit einer zunächst wässrigen aber dann sich kräftigen Note: Sirup, Malz, ganz am Ende auch Bergamotte.

Amber colour with way too much foam which stays for a long time. Aroma is sugary, some spices, malts.
