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.

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, - NOV 13, 2012
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear amber body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is peachy melon and grass, with hints of citrus and pine. Taste is honey, dry hay and grass tones, peaches, pine and citric peel. Dry herbal-soapy bitter finish. Medium carbonation and body with a slightly parching mouthfeel. Rather outspoken for a pale ale but still nice enough.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle (backlog). Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, toffeeish, floral and quite herbal. Flower is grapefruits, tropical fruit juice as well as some sweet malty and syrupy notes.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Under a big, creamy, off-white colored head is an almost clear dark golden body. Some lacings left. Grass, pine cones and some citrus in the aroma, with a pleasant maltyness. Pine cones and bitterness from the hops, a bit anonymous I think, but still really fine. Nice malty flavors in the back. Medium to full body with a pleasant carbonation level. Quite dry, finishing mostly bitter. Even though I score them equal, I prefer the HBC 517 edition. HBC 436 the least interesting of the three. 130111

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. High creamy and lasting dense white head. Hazy amber body. Fruity pear apricoty aroma that is relatively sweet. Mild grupefruit hops pine flavor with low carbonatin and a long bittersweet finish. A bit more smooth than the Lundsbak edition.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Review from backlog, bottle tasted 09/29/2012. Pours burnt orange caramel, small head rests to an oily slick. Aroma is piney caramel hops, herbal, fresh grass and hop cones. Taste is more citrus, light grapefruit and fresh hop cones, medium bitterness. Light palate, oily. Not bad, seems like a nice dry-hopped ale.

visionthing (2970) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2013
50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Malty and hoppy aroma with caramel, pine, spices, hints of fruits and some earthy notes. Medium sweet with a decent bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Just before expiration, not so fresh, but quite ok. Bitter aftertaste with citrusy notes.

Arve_Christian (3274) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2013
On bottle at Håndverkerstuene , Oslo. Bb aug 2013, it’s already august. Golden color, good hoppy aromas , tropical fruits , good fruitiness- medium intensity. Caramel ; high intensity- also vanilla. Medium body & complexity. Immediate sweetness, some bitterness- ok balance. Enjoyable, but too much on the sweet caramelly side for me( or should it have been drunk earlier) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
500 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a cloudy orange amber colour with a white head. Aroma of grass, strong herbs and some sweetish notes. Flavour of grassy hops, herbs, bread, some grapefruit and dried fruits. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, grassy, herbal finish. Rather musty and the hop profile isn?t the most interesting out there.

laiti (5955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Timo A. Batch #447, BBE 08/2013
Aroma is somewhat sweet with fruity hops, some berries and hints of vegetables. Flavour has herbal notes, some hops, gooseberry bush and hints of caramel. Finishes with strong herbal notes. Vegetable and grassy notes get stronger towards the end of the glass. Perhaps past of its prime but good still.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is soft and airy and a little dry. Hops are mildly grassy with mildly bitter starfruit and a touch of aniseed. Reminds me of Aramis but this milder. Creamy malt. Semi dry finish. Not bad.
