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 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.

Hazy copper color, with medium sized head. Some toffee aroma, but a bit more dusty and earthy than the others. Lean mouthfeel; dry flavor, some toffee and caramel; correct bitterness, but less hop quality.
Pleasant but rather simple; the easiest one of the set.

yngwie (13204) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2013
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
