Gulden Draak Ale

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

The first time I had the Draak was in Amsterdam at our hostel. I think it cost less than two euros there from the grocery store, so $3 is not too bad. I've only had this out of the bottle, so I was surprised to see a nice blood red color on this. The taste is rather smooth and mellow given the 10.5% ABV. It does have a hearty mouthfeel, and as the beer warms, starts to take on a slight burn on the finish. So in conclusion, the beer is exactly as named: dragon=blood red color, hearty, and burns on the way down.
