Gouden Carolus Classic 7.5°-1/3L
Gouden Carolus Classic, from Het Anker brewery and delivered worldwide, finds its origin in the rich tradition of Mechelen. Every Belgian city had their own city breweries and their own city beer. So the people of Mechelen drunk "den Mechelschen Bruynen". Mechelen, at that time capital of the Netherlands, had her brewer's guild and the members were on their honor to brew the best beer for the Emperor. An old chronicle of Mechelen reports that this Grand Imperial Beer, "Gouden Carolus" named after the golden coins of Emperor Charles, was mainly consumed during the foxhound "since both the riders and the horses were brought in full fire and made them gallop in order for the hunt always developed in the best atmosphere".

Gouden Carolus Classic 7.5°
This beer, which is a hundred years old, is not based on any known category of beer. It is a strong beer, in particular through a mellow aroma. Its content is low on hops, and its bitter-sweet taste, which makes it at the same time resemble a traditional Flemish brown ale while retaining its vinous tone, is essentially du the presence of a caramel malt and coriander.
Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperor's Beer" which is of guaranteed top fermentation and bottle conditioning following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even imporves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and its rich bouquet.
