bonkiedeaap (678) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is deep golden/amber colored and pours a large and stable white head, with rich carbonation. The aroma is malty with tones of caramel, dark fruits and hint of wood and coriander. Taste is light to medium bodied, little sweet and very fruity with a hoppy bitterness. The finish is sweet and light bitter.

A rather tasty Amber Ale. It is more sour and lively aroma than most other Amber Ales. Nice texture and great hops!

Bottle supplied by J. Halket. Pours light straw with pale head. Very thirst quenching when watching England in World Cup rugby. Reminds me of the old Stella.

Poured a lovely clear golden colour with a long lasting head. Has slight hints of honey with a slight bitter aftertaste. Somewhat disappointing, wont be in a hurry to have again.

Leighton (19552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle shared in London - with Lyoli. Pours totally clear gold, effervescent, with a creamy white head. Pleasant lightly toasted biscuits in the aroma, subtle Belgian yeast, candi sugar. Medium sweet flavor with lightly dried, bready malts, light toffee, faint dried berries, dates, very slight leafy hops. Light to medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with simple but tasty bready malts, candi sugars, Belgian yeast, banana chips, lightly toasted toffee. Fairly basic but not bad overall.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Descripcin Bruegel Amber ale recibe su nombre en honor del famoso pintor del siglo XVI Pieter Bruegel. Se eligi una parte del cuadro El baile de los mendigos para ilustrar la etiqueta de la cerveza, que refleja la vida cotidiana de esa poca, donde la cerveza era una parte esencial de los habitantes de esa zona que ms tarde, en el siglo XVIII se llamara Blgica. NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Dorada ambarina. - Aroma: Aroma a galleta, ligeros recuerdos de pltano. - Cuerpo/sabor: Ofrece ms cuerpo, ms espuma y ms gusto que la mayora de las estadounidenses y cervezas belgas mbar. Se elabora con cebada neerlandesa y lpulo alemn. A pesar de que la amargura est claramente presente, no es dominante.
