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!

Flaske 0,5 liter, dufter dejligt af forår, og ser godt ud i glasset, smager også godt, men det er nu mest konsistensen og eftersmagen der gør det til en virkelig god øl.

Fine light unclear golden body with a solid finger thick white head on top. Herbal and floral hoppy aroma with some yeast. A fine body with a fresh bitterness. Balanced sweetness. Nice summer feeling in the mouth. I like flowers. Fine dash of flowers here and some herbal notes. Fine balanced malty back. Recomendable.
