Klares bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit einer fingerbreiten leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch muffig hopfig, karamellig, dumpf metallisch. Geschmack sehr malzig, würzig, leichte Restsüße, Karamell, unangenehm hopfig.

English pale ale fait par Inbev sous la direction de Whitbread London (Est. 1742). Malt d’orge et maïs !!!! Couleur roux caramel (emploi de E 150 c, caramel ammoniacal, pour la couleur … !!! ??? Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes quasi nulles. Mousse blanc cassé, à gros flocons, grasse (maïs). 1ère bouche pâteuse (maïs) avec une petite amertume. Arrière-bouche qui est sans vraie ligne (un peu de malt, un peu de houblon). 2ème indéfinie, aqueuse. Arrière-bouche industrielle. 3ème sans noblesse, du caramélisé de bas étage. Arrière-bouche minable. Longueur insipide, inodore, mais pas incolore (E 150 c …). Levure vraiment sans consistance. Alcool sans intérêt, puisqu’il n’a rien à soutenir … Finale banalissime. CONCLUSION : à quoi sert une antériorité de 1742 pour pareille mixture ?? Une banale soupe avec un peu de maïs et de E 150 c ...

Not bad for what it is, but it is no competition for the better Belgian beers!

25 cl, best before 03/04/15. The beer starts malty-smooth, fresh. Hints of grain, slightly roasty, Nice bitter-malty in the aftertaste, quite dry with a pale bitter aroma.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Classic old-fashioned pale ale which Interbrew, now AB InBev made a Belgian version of (pale ales were very popular and influential in Belgian beer culture after World War I) but like the sweet stout, I have not seen this one in a while, not sure if they still make it today. It was a malt sweet, bit thin, amber coloured beer with some fruitiness, a metallic hint and a simple, straightforward character - but this type of beers were not intended with gastronomical ambitions and it served its purpose, like the slightly better Bass Pale Ale did.

Slightly solventy woody aroma, smells old. Nice brown, small head. Starchy paper glueyness in the taste. Malty too. Dull, too starchy, not good.
