COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of the traditional Irish Amber Ale. This beer combines the richness of German and Austrian malts with the delicate and spicy British hops for a taste worthy of the Red Rose City ABV: 5.0% • IBU:16

Earlier Rating: 8/27/2006 Total Score: 3.8
Draft. Not sure who listed this beer, or how I became the first to drink it, but here goes. Deep coppery pour with ruby edges, and a great creamy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, vinous fruit, cherry, red grape, even some blueberry hints. The taste is caramel malty, fruity, vinous, with nice complexity and a nitrogenated mouthfeel. Very smooth and quaffable, I would have called this a red ale based upon its fruitiness, but lets compromise and call it a damned good brown ale.
Earlier Rating: 3/10/2006 Total Score: 2.9
Draft at brewpub. Coppery brown colored with some aroma of caramel malt, almonds, and sligh brown sugary fruit. The palate is medium to light, with malt, caramel, nut, and some brown sugar hints.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
The guy who scored this a 4.3! Seriously? A Duvel is a 4.3. Pours amber from tap without much aroma. Not a lot going on tastewise although you get some caramel maltiness on the finish. Not my favorite style granted but this one seems to be playing fairly safe.
