COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewery Het Anker decided to brew an easy drinkable city beer for the Mechelenians, still peppy enough in order to enjoy it to the fullest. We brew a heroic beer called Maneblusser. It’s a blond beer with an alcohol percentage of 5.8% vol. in which you can taste a subtle citrus aroma and a fine finish. Maneblusser is brewed according to the traditional method of high fermentation with refermentation in the bottle.

The inspiration for this brew originates in the night of January 27th in the year 1687. The moon projected its reddish glow on Saint Rumbold’s tower, which was wrapped in a dense fog. “Fire, fire, the tower is on fire!” shouts the dreary voice of a drunken man. The alarm was sounded and people were making haste to help extinguish the so-called fire. Before the tower was reached, the moon slowly moved through the fog. From that moment on, the Mechelenians are called the Maneblussers or “Moonextinguishers”.

jamaty (2141) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2017
Amarillenta, consistentemente turbia, de muy fina burbuja y espuma cremosa y muy duradera. Aroma cereal. En boca resulta muy agradable, cremosa, cítrica, especiada, ligeramente láctea. Buen punto de gas, punzante. Muy bebible y refrescante. Equilibrada y ligera.

Inoven (746) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met joep. Bleek geel, troebel bier. Aroma is hoppig, smaak is fruitig (citrus, sinaasappelschil). Smaak is fruitig en ietsje bitter. Bittere smaak blijft even hangen.

chromeotaphor (170) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Muffig fris zurend aroma met hinten van citrus. Aantrekkelijk wolkige volle schuimkraag met een fel ei citrus gele kleur. Zurige bitter die vol en licht romig smaakt, lekker bruisend. Verfrissend redelijk vol van smaak, aanradertje.

Prima biertje van het vat. Duidelijke tonen van citrus en vrij steek in koolzuur. Al met al lekker fris.
