At one time the Brewery "Het Anker" had a complete assortment of beers, including normal table-beer, lager beer (low ferment) and special beers with high fermentation. The desire to offer a complete assortment of beers and the demand of our customers for a lager beer produced with respect of quality and tradition decided us to start the production again after 30 years. This excellent beer, called "Blusser", is locally brought on the market in the city of Mechelen. The beer is brewed at Huyghe for Het Anker

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2006
Tap at the brewery. Aroma isn’t much fun, just carbonation like during fermentation process. Pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Light sweet, light malty, light bitter, very light and very refreshing. Nothing to get excited about but it sure does show quality.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2006
Clear golden with small persisting white head. Very fruity and malty, sweet, easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Finish is short, complete lack of hopbitterness.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2006
Clear golden with a smallish but lasting and firm head. Slightly sweet aroma of saaz hops and lots of buttery diacetyl. Sweetish, slightly harsh-hoppy flavor with hints of toffee. Light to medium-bodied with quite high and foamy carbonation. A typical, average pils with nothing to grab into. The label is also quite cheap-looking compared to other Anker brews.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2005
Blond beer with a small head. Weak light hoppy aroma. This is a rather mild pils but with some sweetness giving it some body.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Comes in a lovely swing top bottle with a "painted" label. Fully golden, slightly sweetish beer with a lovely, full head with good retention. Very smooth and easy to drink with a good, malty body without much bitterness in the finish. Bought at the brewery the day they released their first "Cuvée de Keizer" - great show! 061099

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2005
BottleBlond, clear body. White frothy head, which lasts mostly. Hoppy, yeasty nose. Lightly bitter initial flavour; moderately bitter finish. Lightly soap. Nice pilsener.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2003
Absurdly huge head, white-yellow, very lacy; gold-grain coloured beer, clear. Faint flowery nose. Grainy taste, taste of non-sweet coloured malts, giving it more an ale-character. Faint hops wafting over. Slightly burning taste from the malt, quite dry mouthfeel. Short bitter aftertaste. Tasting this beer raises more questions than it answers. First - is this top- or bottom-fermenting? Wouldn't be the first Belgian "pilsner" to be brewed with ale-yeasts. Second, and certainly it if would be genuine bottom-fermenting - then WHO brews this? 't Anker? Bottom-fermenting??
