COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was created in 1933 by Alfred Dubuisson, grand-father of the present family brewer, Hugues. Its former name was "Bush Beer 24°" (the density in Ballings), but today it is known as Bush Amber. Its amber colour is due to the use of caramel malt in the production process. Its bitter sweet taste provides it with firmness and personality. What's more, it helps digestion.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle: Aroma contains lots of fruit with candy sugar, toffee, and suprising no alcohol. Pours a dull cloudy orangish-brown with a fizzy off-white head that diminishes quickly. Lots of fruit and yeast, light candy sugar and and hints of raisin up front. Light toffee in the middle. Finishes with a light flowery bitterness and a big alcohol bite. More warmth than actual flavor, but the flavor is there.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 24, 2005
Had one of these at the Winking Lizard. Pours a cloudy red copper. The tall thick off white head is fully lasting with fair lace, and is something you could float a quarter on.. Nose of fruit (berries and cream), and floral notes that strengthen as the brew warms. The brew has a dominant sweet and warm alcohol character. A slight malt presence is detected at the finish. The syrupy and rich body is soft and sticky.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2005
250 ml bottle from BevMo. As the name suggests, this one pours amber and slightly hazed, with a small creamy white head. Sweet and bready, dried fruits and light spice with prominent alcohol notes - kind of like rum splashed fruit cake. Flavor is quite good, sweet and yeasty, citrus notes and lots of alcohol coming on, tastes like liquid short bread sugar cookies with orange zest along with hints of nutmeg and clove. A little harsh in the finish with a lingering alcohol burn. Medium body, velvety smooth and light tickly carbonation. Though this is different than their Noel seasonal, it’s still a nice holiday brew.

12/23/05: Bottle.
Nose of caramel and brown sugar. Amber body with lots of yeast floaties. Off white head with medium lace. Flavors include malt, molasses, alcohol, yeast, heavy on the caramel, and a slight tinge of tin. Alcohol is more apparent as the beer warms.

pretty golden color, this beer is much more drinkable than i thought it would be.

Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle. Nice dark gold body topped with a thin foamy/creamy white head. Enjoyable malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and fruity notes. Very good and complex taste that carries various yeasty, fruity and spicy hints. Aftertaste leaves a nice warming effect. This is not for lager people.

3.2
Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - DEC 2, 2005
UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Gorgeous apperance, nice amber quality. Not bottle fermented so the poor is not a skilled approach. NIce white head and a nice dried fruit aroma with slight estery notes. Sweet malty palate is checked by a slight hop bitterness. The 12% is not deceptively hidden, try with a grilled pork chop in a mustard sauce.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2005
i poured this into a tulip glass. i realized that this bottle was only 8.2 oz/250 ml...so Im like, i know it’s 12% alchohol, but sheesus. After my first sip I was really pissed. This stuff was yummy. Smelled great, taste great, this was as intoxicating as being thrown up on stage at a strip club with a $100 in your mouth....bless canada! orange hazy light caramelo taste, sticky, excellent lacing like a bit of splatter from doom 3. had a breakfast taste ...id like to pour this on my tofurkey sausages yo. it’s classic how the ratings below also make refrence to breakfast....best meal of the day in my opinion. why is this only at 81% approval?

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2005
pours an light orange and clear beer in the glass with a very small head. Light body with a thin texture and an average carbonation: despite its 12%, Bush is very easy to drink. Bush ambrée is sweet and a little salty at the same time, some caramel aromas can be detected. A beer I’d only drink along a dessert, maybe pancakes with honey.
