Mug Bitter is a top fermented, amber-coloured beer of 5% ABY, made from pale malt and Caramalt 20 and richly hopped with Hallertau, Goldings and Challenger hops. The beer's character is best expressed in the old saying: "Geen smaeck zo soet als 't Zeeuwse Bitter doet" (Nothing tastes as sweet as the Bitter from Zeeland). Its hoppy and fruity aroma and well-balanced bittersweet flavour places this beer in a league of its own! Mug Bitter ... Much Better!

Bitter beer since 1988 for De Mug, at first brewed at ’t IJ but since 1997 at Scheldebrouwerij, when it was still settled in the Netherlands. Creamy, off-white head, murky ochre blonde colour with orange glow. Malty and yeasty character, pleasant fruitiness, bready and honeyish, but primarily grassy (Saaz) and peppery (Spalt) hops. Fruity, soft malty onset, making place for a very assertive, resinous, spicy, sticky, long hop bitterness. More a kind of session IPA than a traditional English bitter, as it is apparently classified here.

Aroma of malt, slight fruitiness, hops. Flavour is malty and light hoppy, with a bitter finish. Not bad.

Een speciaal biertje, met een smaak die ik nog niet veel geproefd heb, maar het was niet echt mijn ding.

33cl flesje via 8 Zaligheden, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 5% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk:goudoranje kleurig met dikke schuimkraag, schiet zelf al naar boven na opening fles Aroma en smaak: zoals op de fles staat flink bitter, lekkere kandijsmaak op de achtergrond Conclusie: erg smaakvol ook gezien de 5% alcoholpercentage, lekkere hop gebruikt. Ben niet zo'n bitter liefhebber, maar goed bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice bitter taste, but this beer lacks body and has a very short finish. For a special beer it’s not very special.

A nice hoppy and fresh beer! A sharp taste with a smooth aftertaste. A great nose and a beautiful blond color.
