12/24 Big Wheel Deluxe Amber, Amsterdam Brewery (Draught).

Reviewed on February 16, 2010.

I wish to make a slight revision to the "Big Wheel Deluxe Amber, Amsterdam Brewery" beer review, where I will re-list that one as "Bottled" and this one as "Draught". On February 16, 2010 I tried this product for the first time on tap and I must say that I was not as impressed. In fact, I had a bit of trouble finishing the beer. I was at Kalendar with my father, and I even got him to try it, but there was a huge difference in that this particular beer came from a pump-tap. When beers come in this form they are often A) much warmer than usual, and B) not carbonated.
Not my cup of tea.
Not my cup of beer either, apparently.
I should have gone with the scotch ale, but the sample was very sweet to me.

Anyway, if I were to revise the rating it would go as follows:

First Impression: 2/6... Much darker looking without the green bottle, and without the right carbonation there was no head! At least it came in a Big Wheel glass, but at this point I don't care already.

Speed Rating: 1/6... Can't drink more than a pint. Barely drank less than a pint. Good thing I had an amazing half-chicken dish with mashed sweet potatoes to wash it down.

Intangibles: 6/6... Great venue, great food, great company.

Overall Effect: 3/6... but the intangibles have a lot to do with this rating, because there wasn't much else the beer had going for it.

Total: 12/24
Level of Drunkness: 0
