Pauwel Kwak

Type: amber ale, belgian
Origin: Buggenhout, Belgium
Price: €0.94 per 12 oz

As a basic cheap beer, Kwak definitely does not disappoint. For a cheap belgian, I think it falls a bit flat. It has a bit of a dirty flavor that is hard to pick out, but kinda reminds me of a Newcastle. It should be noted this is much better than Newcastle, but that is not that hard to accomplish. If you drink this at an appreciable rate and without smelling, it starts to take on flavors of a traditional tripel, so I guess that is a pleasant surprise. Its also a healthy 8.4%, which is always a nice touch.

Also, check out our awesome Mannekin Pis bottle opener. Definitely not compensating for anything.
