Amber coloured top-fermented beer, brewed according to an old traditional recipe. A tasty beer, mellow in character that you can carry on drinking.

bonkiedeaap (644) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel in Belgium. The beer is amber colored and has a small white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of caramel, dark fruits, spices and yeast. The taste is light to medium bodied and sweet with notes of caramel and malts, also notes of fruits. The finish is light bitter with spices and yeast and is a little dry and watery. Oke beer, but nothing special.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Robe ambrée, mousse moyennement abondante. Nez fruitée et épicé, légère note maltée. Bouche à l’attaque amère, assez courte, bulle peu présente et finale qui s’écrase. Bière sans intérêt.

Kobracai (147) - FINLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Clear amber colour. Aroma is ale and fruit. Taste is sweet with resemblance to ginger ale mouthfeel. And some lemon. Not much bitterness. Aftertaste is dry. Nice light drinking.

slowrunner77 (10241) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2016
$4 single and totally not worth half that. Unassuming Belgian amber ale. Rather boring, actually. Light spice from the yeast, toffee and malt. Thin and overcarbonated.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2016
330 ml flaske delt på RBHD-samling på Fjøløy. Oransjegyllen kropp full av småpartikler og med beige film som det flyter en liten skumøy midt i. Våt papp og honningnoter. Søt og flat med litt honningsyrlighet. God fylde.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - AUG 21, 2016
5.5%ABV. Belgian ale. Poured out deep gold to amber. 11ºSRM . Nose has a more aggressive and more pronounced azuki or sweet red bean paste aroma. Mouthfeel is light syrup. Palate has some light toasty flavors with light caramel, lightly browned sugar of sticky buns. Palate is a little rounded with very very light sour and beery flavors. Some depth to the overall body. Hops are nicely balanced at the end, but still a little clunky for me. Finish is beery and "commercial"

Keg at The Le Val de Trie Bar, Bouillancourt, Picardy, France. Amber with white head. Sweet, caramel beer, thin, carbonated, toffee. Nothing really special about this one.

ForlornHope (417) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Orange-amber with a thin head. Aroma of caramel malt. Sweet on the tongue with a hint of bitter balance. Fruity with caramel maltiness. Quite well carbonated but still soft, mellow and easy-drinking.
