COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gouden Carolus Ambrio is aromatically brewed according to the ancient recipe of the Mechelschen Bruynen. Ambrio is an amber ale brewed with brio. This white beer of high fermentation finds its origin in the traditional beer of the city of Mechelen. As each city had its own typical beer, the Mechelenians drunk their amber beer: "Mechelschen Bruynen" for hundreds of years. Our brewery is the only brewery that still brews this type of beer. According to the tradition the basic recipe of this beer dates from 1421 and is therefore the oldest beer from the brewery. The current version is slightly heavier than the original and finer hopped. The balance between the different malts, the fine hops and typical aromas with herbs ensure that this beer combines the whole-hearted nature of brown beers with the freshness of blonde beers. This flavored and spicy light brown tasting beer should be served fairly fresh. Refermentation in the bottle.

Hazy amber towards mahogany, light beige dense creamy head is big and stays long leaving lots of covering lacing. Aroma is sweet with toasted malt, caramel, raisins, plums, brown sugar. Sweet, malty, chewy, lively carbonation balances sweetness, long finish. I liked this well, good stuff, blanced with nice flavors.

Cristobal37 (886) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Slightly hazy amber with huge head. Sweet spicy yeast on the nose. Combo of malted barley caramel sweetness and spicy floral notes. Finish is oily and full of complex flavors. Strong ale but it?s still crisp and clean. Pretty good.

Very fine foam, hops are not too dominant. Well balanced taste. Nice summer beer but not very distinct.

Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 02/12/18, large sample. Almost clear amber color, big frothy head. Aroma of spicy hop, bit green apple, coriander, slight flowery hop, hint of caramel. Bit sweet caramel in taste, soft grassy and spicy bitterness, soft to medium spicy. Ok.
