COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Når solstrålerne bliver lange nok til at nå skovbunden og erantis og krokus begynder at pible frem, og når de unge piger på cykelstierne med deres mere begrænsede påklædning begynder at udgøre en trafikrisiko for hormonboblende unge mænd med øjnene alle andre steder end på trafikken, ja SÅ ved du, at det atter er blevet forår over det ganske land. For ølelskerne er det blevet tid til at lade de tunge og mørke øl blive stående i ølkøleskabet og i stedet kigge efter lidt lettere og forårsbebudende øltyper. En sådan øl er Amager Forårsbryg, en Bière de Garde af type, som er fuld af krydrede blomster- og pollentoner. Rig på malt med toner af karamel og så en tør humling, der sikrer at der ingenlunde går sødsuppe i den. Bière de Garde betyder jo egentlig ”øl til at gemme”, men hul i det siger vi på Amager, for vores forårsbryg skal drikkes her og nu – du kan garanteret ikke lade være. Skål for foråret og for lysets komme.

English: When sunbeams reach the forest floor, when winter aconites and crocuses begin to blossom, and when young girls on bicycles in skimpy skirts pose traffic hazard for hormone bubbly young men with their eyes elsewhere than on the traffic, then you know for sure that spring has arrived! At this time of the year it is time for beer lovers to leave the heavy and dark beers in the fridge, and start looking for lighter beers. This “Spring Beer” from Amager Bryghus is a “Bière de Garde” type of beer, which is full of spicy flowers and pollen tones. Rich malt with notes of caramel and dry hopping ensure that the beer isn’t at all too sweet. Bière de Garde actually means "beer for storage" but never mind that we say as our “Spring Beer” must be enjoyed here and now. We dare you… you can hardly resist if you are as excited as we are that springtime has finally come!

Tåget gylden med et hvidt, holdbart skum. Duften er fyldig med masser af blomster. Duften fortsætter i smagen, suppleret af en fin bitterhed, der vokser i eftersmagen.

erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 10, 2014
Clean enough golden body with off white head. Not quite as aromatic as expected, I expected a more pronounced yeast from longer fermentation. However, the malts are clearly quality stuff and a fitting albeit not terribly challenging bitterness is provided by the classic style hops. Very fine mouth feel, as it should with this style, but again not a perfect yeast development. Pleasant beer, but its weakness is in that once you go hop you never go back I’m afraid. (50cl bottle from Beer City)

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Bouteille 50cl, batch# 543, BB 11/2014. Orangée, col crémeux blanc léger. Arôme est fleuri avec un bouquet fleuri assez prenant ponctué par des notes de grains et un léger citronné. On retrouve ici ce côté bière de garde très français surtout au niveau levure et malts. Palais est surprenant avec au premier abord une certaine épaisseur de bouche faisant penser à un usage d’avoine. Le tout est ponctué d’un malt caramel généreux tout comme une levure qui ici également fait de suite offre d’une signature française. Cela se note par ce côté alcoolisé - venant de la garde - légèrement plus prenant que ces consoeurs belges. Note un côté cara pils, pâle sur un léger crystal? fini épicé et houblonné offrant une fine amertume en toute fin de bouche. Cela vient balancer une bière au profil malté.

MaartenRF10 (1459) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2013
Almost clear amber beer with a decent lasting beige head. Aroma is mostly rye, as is the taste. I like rye in beer so that’s a pro. It’s spicy and flowery and has a nice bitter. And it’s something different, another pro!
