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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8164) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2007
Another fantastic brew form Het Anker! Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a very large yellow-tan head. The aroma was a lovely mix of sweet, tangy, yeasty, bready and fruity elements. The flavor was sweet with notes of fresh pear, caramel and a tart finish. Wonderful!

Bottle 330ml. Exceptional beer. Aromas of banana, caramel, dough, dark fruit. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, medium-to-full bodied. Brown, with a frothy white head.

heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 1, 2007
0,33l bottle. Already puring in the glass I noticed strong beautiful aroma of hop fruits mixed with flowers, but also some nice undefined malt. Appearance isn’t any worser - amber colored with very large, creamy ebony head. Flavor is really full as stated in comm, you know you are drinking the right thing with rich malt...somewhat fruity. Soft carbonation. Long nice finish. Wonderful beer, but very expensive. But even then I will surely have it again as it is the best beer I’ve tried so far!
