Dageraad Belgian Brewery – Amber Ale Review
Dageraad is BC’s first Belgian focused brewery and one of their launch beers is the Amber. This Belgian style Pale Ale pours a cloudy amber colour topped with two fingers of fairly dense, slowly settling head. The glass is left rather clean following the settling head and the beer smells of Belgian tradition and traditional pale ale aromas. Belgian yeast kicks things off with a wheaty, lightly sweetened caramel tone. A maltyness and light fruit tones make this a very enticing beer. The flavour too has a distinct Belgian yeast and wheatiness to it. A strong malted back, mid-sweet malty caramel flavours make up the mid-section before a finish of malt, dark fruit and a slightest of hops. The Belgian Pale Ale is not a style you see much of in British Columbia but once this beer makes the rounds we will surely see replicas filling other brewery’s tanks. The Dageraad Amber Ale is a fantastic tasting beer that will satisfy the pickiest of BC craft beer palates.
