Alengrin (2737) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
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.

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Belgian version. Clear caramel amber color. Aroma of stale and dusty malt, caramel and a bit of bread. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, a bit of stale notes and a drier finish, slightly bitterish, with faint spicy notes and light metallic notes. Light to medium-bodied. Too sweet.
