Gouden Carolus Ambrio

Gouden Carolus Ambrio

Ratebeer 3.54 89th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +2

The foamy head is beyond enormous and takes forever to fall. It actually continued to come right out of the bottle after pouring away half of the bottle. Aromas immediately dance past the hairs and promise tastes of caramel, fruit, apricots, cloves and vanilla. Sadly the taste was a little flat and did not live up to its nose. Rather faint rewards of yeast, ripe bananas and fruit.
Aftertaste +2

There was the slight acidic sweetness that you could not clear out of your mouth, rather like dried apricots.

Alcohol Content +1 8%

Value 0

This bottle was not cheap and it was not that good.

Ingame Enhancement 0

The problem with beers this this is that they are meant for sharing. When you game alone with a beer like this you tend to loose feeling in your arms

Overall 6/10

I was not impressed by this brew for the price you paid; pick up a Brooklyn Local 1 instead.
