This beer seems to be considered a "premium" choice in a lot of restaurants in Amsterdam. I found it to be very good and drinkable; better than most of the other reviewers seem to think.
Pretty amber color with a not so thick head. Usually served in a goblet of 25cl.
Nice malty aroma with some hoppiness. Good flavor, malt and bitterness in balance. Also, some crystal malt, roastiness and a hint of sugar.
Excellent for sipping in an outdoor cafe and goes well with spicy or ethnic foods.
Serving type: on-tap

I am trying different brands of this style and found this to be almost misplaced. Although a nice looking amber ale, I found the taste to be out of the norm for the style. It reminded me of a hoppy version of Amber Bock, but with a little more complex ale flavor. The esters and fruitiness of traditional Belgian ale yeasts do not come through in this beer. Some may like it but I will pass for a Leffe Blonde any day...
