From Dageraad Brewing out of Burnaby BC comes their “Amber” a Belgian Style Ale. The beer pours a cloudy amber colour with a white head. The aroma consists of fruity esters, caramel malts and a Belgian yeast. The flavour is of fruit, grassy hops, caramel malts and Belgian yeast. The alcohol content comes in at 6%. This is a very tasty Belgian Style Amber and I would recommend that you pick up a bottle if you can find it.
Commercial Description: Invented for the Liége exposition of 1905 to compete with British imports, the Spéciale Belge or Belgian pale ale style marries the complexity of Belgium’s beers to the drinkability of Britain’s pale ales. Dageraad Amber’s light malty sweetness and rich bouquet of malt and stone fruit are balanced by a hoppy aroma and a crisp finish. This beer was inspired by the experience of enjoying a fresh bolleke − Antwerp locals’ affectionate nickname for a glass of De Koninck − in the Dageraadplatz, just a stone’s throw from the De Koninck Brewery.
