Dageraad Amber

Style: Belgian-style Pale Ale
Alc/Vol: 6%

Description: The second beer to be produced by this new BC brewery, this unfiltered Amber carries on in the tradition of Belgian-style pale ales, which were invented for the Liége exposition of 1905 to compete with British imports. Much like the name of the brewery itself, this beer was inspired by the experience of enjoying a fresh glass of beer in the Dageraadplatz.

Tasting Notes: A good introduction to this brewery, and a faithful example of a Belgian amber, this beer packs a solid, grainy malt base, a strong yeast backbone, and a nice, lingering spicey finish that is reminiscent of coriander.

Appearance: Orange/amber, slightly cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Strong yeasts, discernible grainy malt, coriander spice
Taste: Smooth malt, strong yeast flavor, notes of coriander and bitter hop finish
Aftertaste: Lingering malt and yeast bitterness, spices
Overall: 8.5/10
