Belgian Ale - Dark / Amber
The Belgian Amber Ale (sometimes referred as Belgian "Pale Ale") is a moderately malty, somewhat fruity, easy-drinking, copper to reddish-brown colored Belgian ale that is somewhat less aggressive in flavor profile than many other Belgian beers. The malt character tends to be a bit biscuity with light toasty, honey-like, or caramelly components. The fruit character is noticeable and complementary to the malt. The bitterness level is generally moderate, but may not seem as high due to the flavorful malt profile. Fairly similar to pale ales from England, typically with a slightly different yeast character and a more varied malt profile and with less yeast character than many other Belgian beers.
