COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På Amager Bryghus har vi aldrig lagt skjul på, at vi er ægte humlehoveder. Vi elsker den lille grønne kogle for alt hvad den gør ved øllet. Og som alle ved, er det slet ikke så lidt: duft, smag, bitterhed og holdbarhed.
Vi hørte for et par år siden ude i byen, at såkaldte ”Single-hop” øl skulle være trendy, så på et direktionsmøde i frokoststuen besluttede vi, at Amager Bryghus også måtte have sin egen ”Single-hop” serie. Men da næsten alle humler allerede er gennemprøvet grundigt i alverdens ”Single-hop” øl-serier, så valgte vi at gå nye veje.
Vores gode, faste humleleverandør serverede os tre eksperimentelle humler, som endnu ikke er kommercialiseret. Om de nogensinde bliver det ved ingen endnu, derfor har de heller ikke rigtige navne. Så mine damer og herrer, byd velkommen til humlerne: HBC 342, HBC 436, HBC 517. De er helt nye, grønne og uprøvede, så tag godt imod dem.
Hver af disse tre eksperimentelle humler får hermed sin egen øl. Maltprofilen er den samme, en let Pale Ale. Vi er ikke ude på at lave humlebomber, så den største mængde af humlen er tilsat sent. Desuden har vi tørhumlet kraftigt for at fremhæve humlernes aromatiske egenskaber snarere end bitterheden.
Håber du må nyde denne anderledes American Pale Ale.

Hazy orange of color with an off white head. An aroma of grass, yeast and malt. A flavor of yeast, malt and hops.

Bottle. A big, creamy, off-white head sits on top of a dark golden, almost clear body. Lacings too. The aroma is grassy with a nice maltyness. A tad boring I think. Pleasant bitterness in the mouth, grassy hops and a fine malty backdrop too. Medium to full body, nicely carbonated, and semi-dry. Bitter finish. Both aroma and flavor is a bit boring, obviously the hop isn’t set for a task like an APA, or of course it might be that there’s not enough of it, but as the beer is brewed by Amager, I doubt that’s the problem. 130111

Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and great thx to Papsoe for sending me a bunch of Amager beers to celebrate my 5K milestone. Light hazy amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, mild hoppy caramel nose. Moderate malty, citrusy hoppy and light caramel with dry bitter finish. Pleasant.

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with a carbonated nip. A little creamy malt. A mild hop this 436 - like 517 but more mellow. Little mint, mild lime and a trace of tangerine. Finishes semi dry. A light and pleasant pale ale.

Papsoe’s (enormous thanks again!), through ogivlado and Maja, shared with heavy too. Yay! Poured a murky dark golden body, quite lovely, with a medium sized slightly off white head. Just slightly fishy, quite grainy apricot aroma, very nice and I had big expectations from the taste... and then I couldn’t find it. It’s bitter, that’s certain, but there’s so little "else" that those ashy/herbal 26 IBUs are very, very prominent, going into the aftertaste. Befuddling after the aroma. Great to have tried it, and I reckon the hop has potential, but though OK enough, this kinda needed some work.

Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, pine, citrus and peach. Flavour follows the nose.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 11, 2013
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear and golden orange colour with a off-white and creamy head. The aroma is sweet and fruity and filled with buble gum, peaches, citrus, and fruity hops. Sweet and nice. I also find fruity hops in the flavour along with grapefruit, some wet cardboard and a dry ending with resin. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Well-balanced, fruity and nice.
