Amber coloured, fine sparkle and delicate and thick head. Pleasant mixture of the aroma of hops and a slight hint of liquorice. Pronounced bitterness, mellow and thirst-quenching.

Review: 330 ml stubby bottle of La Gauloise Ambrée: ABV: 5.5% A World Cup of beer silver award winner, coming in a cool looking 330ml bottle and bought in Lidl. Sure why not! The oldest brand produced by the brewery, and its most successful beer, named after many Roman (Gaul) sites discovered in the area. On pour, a dark orange looking colour appears, with a large foamy beige head that sticks around for ever, resulting in some decent lacing. A bit of fizz Nice reddish hues makes the beer look the part. A nice beery smell on the nose , smelling citrus and fruity hops and a lot of malts, all well balanced. Nothing too complicated but was nice all the same The taste was savoury, varied flavours, fruity, caramel, well balanced but very light and easy on the palate. Smooth enough to drink, not bad, but there was a discount lack of strong flavours in this beer. I did pick up some, they are there but not enough to get the taste-buds going. A little disappointing in that regard. Light and easy to drink, not particularly hoppy or bitter or sweet. Overall, I like this beer, its decent to drink, and goes down very smooth, but it would be nice to have a stronger edge to it with more discernible tastes. Ok, but not the best I have ever had

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Typical malt aromas, caramel and toffee. Highly crisp carbonation with a sweet touch, but that’s about all it offers to the tongue and palate.

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Gusher. Amber caramel malts, cookie dough, fatty sweetness, cereal and some marmelade. Typical Belgian yeast, not too filtered. Light bitterness but also a relatively light bubble for the style so it;s fairly balanced. Main issue is that it falls a bit in nomansland when it comes to the style. I like amber beers, but it’s a bit too liquorice and cloying for its own good. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)
