Bruegel Amber Ale

Bruegel Amber Ale

Ratebeer 2.96 44th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +2

This was an average beer; the nose too was average of yeast, bread, honey and slightly fruity. The taste was just like the nose, so no further excitement here. There was the nice floral and herbal hop bite up front. It was not so much a bit as a nibble. I actually thought it tasted a bit watery.

Aftertaste +1

It was clean but with a slippery ending of faint fruits and honey

Alcohol Content 0 5.2%

Value 0

Not really a beer of excitement.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Meh, I done with this beer.

Overall 3/10

Anyone who raves about how great all Belgian beers are needs to try this one. I found it boring and quite plain. It was a bit watery with honey sweetness, light fruits, yeast and a lackluster hop bite. In case you were wondering, the art on the label was Pieter Bruegel the Elder's The Peasant Dance.
