Brew Review-Brouwerij Van Steenberge N.V.’s Bruegel Amber Ale

This amber ale pours a true amber with a glint of red.  The nose has honey, apples,  molasses and vinegar notes.   Medium carbonation with a head that settled quickly and left decent lacing.  Taste has sweet caramel malts, biscuit malt, touch of hops, apples, and citrus fruits.  It has a crisp and dry mouthfeel.  The finish is a little sour and hoppy.  5.2% alcohol by volume so it’s one of the lighter amber ales, at least in my book.  A good choice if you have just downed a strong craft beer or just want to take a little edge off your day.
