Brasserie Du Bocq Gauloise Amber (5.5%)

I found this as a four pack in Lidl and at £5.00 I just had to give it a go.
Now, I’ll say from the start you get what you pay for in this world and this isn’t the best Belgian beer.
Not by a long chalk.
But at £1.25 a bottle it’s not half bad and could easily fill that cheap and cheerful reach-for beer gap in your fridge.
The beer pours a lovely rich orange with a good head and a gentle and clean steely yeast aroma.
There’s a good hearty caramel in here with fruit juices and fresh herbs on the side, and a hop that’s gentle but has enough punch to give you a decent lemongrass dryness and a reach for more finish.
Like I said, not super but pretty good for the money.
