Brewed by Brouwerij Het Anker
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
With a name like Lucifer, well, how could you not buy a beer with a name like that, all hail the dark lord.
First introduced back in 1980’s by Brouwerij Riva S.A. In 2009, Brouwerij Het Anker obtained the right to brew and sell Lucifer.
Het Anker Brewery is a Flemish brewery in Mechelen, originally founded in 1471 by a community of Beguines. In 1872, the brewery was acquired by Louis Van Breedam, who renamed it Het Anker (“The Anchor”) in 1904.
Review: Bottle of Lucifer Beer: ABV: 8.00%
Bought in Lidl and brewed by Het Anker. Attracted by the name and the imagery on the bottle, a very retro look, Lucifer himself holding a pitchfork surrounded by fire.
Very bubbly on opening, an awful lot of carbonation, Jesus!
Too much head, HUGE, that sticks around, forever. Takes ten minutes to die down, half the beer fizzled away, Must be the bottle, A murky yellow colour, not a good start.
I dont know if it was the bottles but too much fizz, ridiculous, nearly undrinkable.
The smell was quite strong on the nose, wow. Can really smell the hops. Even though its strong it is pleasant to smell. A lovely beery aroma, with a sweet lemon citrus note.
Very sweet taste, sweet malts initially, with a bit of fruit,
Deep aftertaste, Ok, very bitter in the end, earthy hops, and lingers long
Nice enough I guess, Manageable
Very strong, can definitely feel the alcohol!
Not sure about this one to be honest. Didn’t really enjoy at the start, but there was enough in it to make me think again, perhaps that was the alcohol kicking in, which does creep up on you in this beer. Had a cunt of a head the next day, was hellish! Lol
