Bruegel Amber Ale

Type: amber ale
Origin: Ertvelde, Belgium
Price: $17.99 per variety 6 pack

Another beer from the Van Steenberge Brewery, the Bruegel is a fairly light beer given the previous ones I've had from them. It is pretty clear like a fine wine, and the head is pretty light. As for the taste, it is pretty flavorless. Just some light wheat notes, nothing spectacular, nothing terrible. I don't know why they named this after the painter, other than the fact that Bruegel was Flemish. The painting on the bottle is called the "Peasant's Dance", so I guess if there was NASCAR back then, this beer would be drunk there.
