Gouden Carolus Blond: Beer Profile
In honor of Governor Eliot Spitzer, we review a beer that is fit for an emperor!
Gouden Carolus Blond (Belgium) – 8% ABV: This blond beer was brewed in honor of the court of the Emperor Charles The Fifth. Its refined character, with a pure and rich taste, will captivate you. It is matured at length in cellar and bottle, and is brewed only from pale malts. It is traditionally top-fermented and is 100% pure. The beer features a great big frothy head that lasts for a while. There is a soft aroma of peaches, a bit of spice (coriander), and yeast. The color is a nice golden orange. The finish is clean, slightly bitter, and has a nice alcohol warming. Gouden Carolus Blond is a very good triple.
