Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare Vos Amber Ale is styled after the smooth, drinkable beers popular in Belgian caf├ęs. It pours a light copper hue, contrasting beautifully with a big, creamy white head. The nose offers orange blossoms and slight spice.

On the palate, the caramel maltiness shines strongly but with little sweetness. The profile leans toward dry fruity (yeast-affiliated), slightly fruity/hoppy with a beguiling spiciness. This complex, medium-bodied beer has a smooth mid-palate and moderate dry finish.

Well-balanced in all elements, it's a mild, mellow brew.

No date on bottle. Poured from 12oz bottle into a chalice.

A - Murky brown and amber color with a 1 finger head on the pour. Leaves a thick ring of white foam with mild lacing.

S - Fruity scents and a definite yeast component. Some spice as well.

T - Fruity with a slight funk from the yeast. Bread flavors and a slight spice component on the finish.

M - Generous carbonation with a thin to medium body.

A nice smelling and tasting beer. Very enjoyable.
