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”.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Nice looking bottle. I like the wee fireman motif. Pours a handsome hazy Gold with a thick, tall White head. Nice notes of peppery yeast and coriander. Quite fizzy. Fruity and rewarding flavour. Dry and bitter with a bit of honeydew. Pretty decent gear.

Niet slecht, maar ook niet heel bijzonder. Een beetje zoet. Drinkt prima weg.

3.3
guzgorog (844) - FRANCE - SEP 19, 2015
Blonde trouble avec un haut de mousse crémeuse blancge Levure "fruitée", paille, cassonade. Bouche sucrée et maltée, cassonade encore. Le corps est rond et crémeux, la carbo très vive. Bière agréable et bien faite, mais sans caractère vraiment notable.

2.8
Icedwarf (1627) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2015
Geel bier met schuim. Smaak is fris bitter en licht fruitig en licht zoet. Aardig biertje. Etiket geeft 5.8% aan.

2.4
Ulysse (518) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Strong "cassonade" aroma. Rather weak since I had strong expectation of this tribute to the mechelen legend.
