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.

I think Scaldis almost has hints of tannins (perhaps aging in oak?), even though this really is a flavor attributed more to a red wine and the 'skins' of the grapes. I think I like Scaldis because although it strong, the brewers use liberal amounts of hops to offset the sweetness of the malt. Nice and warming.

Erős-erős, erőlködik a kicsike, de azért ennél egy kicsitt több kéne hogy elkápráztasson engem.

Golden amber colour, medium head with short retention. Good crying lace. Aroma of honey, pears, bananas, esters from fruits. Medium to full body, texture is reamy and fruity, with green apples finish. Carbonation is OK. Taste of green aplles, bananas, pears, honeyGreat but dangerous beer, very pleasant and hidden alcohol.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 ottima birra, consigliata per la degustazione. Corposa con un gusto mutevole dal sorso al retrogusto dolce e fruttato.

One really good ale. I drunk it after 4 years age in my cellar. A lot of honey aromas, honey complexity, hoppy, caramel taste and aroma. Like a liquior it was. But I know it in a fresh bottle also. It is huge. You cannot feel the alcohol and the heat so much as in the fresh version. It is sweet and thick.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Sabe muy bien de draft , dulce y con sensaciones frutales claras pese a tener 12% alcohol.

rumore (877) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 6, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours fairly transparent gold worth very fine white foam. Aroma is sweet and rather alcoholic. Body is dense with moderate carbonation. Taste is overly sweet but well moderated by the high alcohol. Finish is long and sweet.
