Danish: Indrømmet, det var sgu’ svært, men ølentusiaster spurgte til en sådan øl, og at det er lykkedes, er vi egentlig ret stolte af. Det, vi er lykkedes med, er for første gang at fremstille en øl, der ikke allerede fra første slurk overfalder dine smagsløg med hvinende humlebitterhed og oceaner af alkohol.
Bryggens Blond er nok mest en øl, der med sin blide fremtoning mere appellerer til det eftertænksomme segment end til garvede, hærdede ølentusiaster.
I glasset fremstår øllen varmt gylden og skummet cremet og delikat. Duften er rig på blomstertoner og et lille strejf af gær afslører den belgiske inspiration.
Med Bryggens Blond vil vi gerne sige tak til de af vore ølentusiast-kunder, der mindede os om, at godt øl ikke altid er lig med vildt og voldsomt øl.

English: Granted, it was damn ’ difficult, but our customers asked for such a beer, we are actually quite proud of the fact that we succeeded. What we have succeeded with is to produce a beer that is not already from the first sip an attack on your tastebuds with a screeching hop bitterness and oceans of alcohol. Bryggen’s Blonde is probably best described as a beer with a gentle appearance that appeals to the thoughtful segment, rather than the tanned, hardened beer enthusiasts. In the glass it appears a warm golden beer both creamy and delicious. The scent is rich in floral tones and a slight hint of yeast reveals the Belgian inspiration.
With Bryggens Blond we would like to thank those of our customers who reminded us that a good beer does not always have to be a wild and violent experience.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt , hops, sweet orange zest and yeast

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an unclear golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak with some sweetness. The flavor is also weak, and the palate is thin. Overall this beer is too common.

Bottle. Orange blonde, cloudy. Yeast and tangerine in the aroma and flavor. Malty, yet fairly dry. Yeasty bitter aftertaste.

Bottom of bottle contains "The Blob" ; beer itself is only veiled orange-amber; small white head. Wild greenery, garden weeds or nettles, arachideoil. More arachide in the flavour, beer is riddled with fatty acids and other autolysis products. Small wonder with the dung-hill of dead yeast down below. Retronasal flavour of rotting grass and caramel. Medium bodied, very well-carbonated. I honestly expected better from Amager; this is poor show.

In short: A well malted golden ale with a disturbing rotting “stuff” character
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed a few days after receiving it through private importation but it was already close to expiration date
The look: Slightly cloudy dark blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Taste of wet toasted bread, old citrus fruits, decomposing flowers, wet graham cookies, old dishcloth, moist. An overall sensation of wet/decaying organic stuff. The beer was still before expiration date but it felt like it was two years past due-date. Pretty bad. Drain poor. And expensive too (at least over here), this is my worst investment idea since my 2004 GM’s gonna bounce back investment strategy.

TaktikMTL (7068) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2009
Bouteille de 500 ml obtenue via Importations Privées Bièriopholie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes. Apparence: La couleur est orangée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’orange avec une pointe de citron. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement légèrement huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’orange en arrière goût. (Rating #2361)

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This approachable Golden Ale exhibits deep cereal notes alongside a citrus and mango-like hop fruitiness that eases into levelled earthy bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy orange-golden.
-The mouthfeel is cushy, smoothly carbonated and drinkable, but the flavor profile could be brighter.
-In the end, a light vegetal character rises.
-I guess the recipe is just not as compelling as most Amager beers I’ve had so far.

rederic (3257) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2009
500ml bottle, batch 109, cloudy orange gold hue, with a small white head, falling quickly, yeasty, fruity, grainy honeyed pale malt nose with a some peach, apricot, mango, pineapple esters, with a wet crunched cereal, light corny accent, and a mild floral hop citrusy, lemon peel note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, spicy, toasty, biscuity, honeyish pale malt character, with some zesty, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot flavors, with a light flowery hop leafy, grassy citrusy accent, leading towards a faint zesty, citrusy, lingering hop bitterness finish.

yngwie (16524) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a hazy, slightly pale golden beer with some microfloaties and a white head. Some sourish notes on the nose, with fruits and lemon, hops and a little chalky touch. Fruity and malty-sweet with some grains, and piney hops giving a fine bitterness. Full-bodied. Long, piney, bitter finish. I suspect there’s something wrong with the bottle, as there were some sourish and chalky notes in the aroma. At least it wasn’t past BB-date. A very refreshing beer, not a big one, but a fine thirst quencher. (090213)
