COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Tilbage i maj 2010 havde vi her på Amager Bryghus besøg af en mand, som ved første øjekast kunne ligne Frank Zappas barnebarn - eller måske en ukendt lillebror til Snoop Dogg. Men navnet var dog ikke hverken Zappa eller Snoop men derimod Laffler, Mr. John Laffler fra Chicago, Illinois. John er til daglig brygger på byens førende bryggeri Goose Island, og kontakten til ham opstod, da vi tidligere på året deltog i World Beer Cup i netop Chicago. Dengang spurgte vi John, om ikke han havde lyst til at brygge øl på Amager, som jo sådan lidt er Danmarks svar på Chicago – oh well, næsten… John fik helt frie hænder og kom op med noget så sjældent som en letrøget Rugstout – derved var Amager RyeKing født.
I glasset står Amager RyeKing sort som beg med et lysebrunt skum. Hele 22% af malten stammer fra rug, og vi vil godt garantere, at det kan smages. RyeKing har en fantastisk robusthed uden nogensinde at være tung, mens røgen aldrig bliver overdøvende, men i stedet tilføjer et lille pikant strejf. Bitterheden er tør og kontant og kommer fra både de ristede malte og fra Northern Brewer humlen. Vi er ret godt tilfredse med dette transatlantiske samarbejde, og er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at du vil være ligeså, når du har smagt Amager RyeKing!
Brygget af: 8 malte, havregryn, 2 humler, amerikansk overgær og det gode Amar-vand.

Opaque black beer, thick brown head. Nice dark malt nose, coffee, seltzer minerals and fruit too! Airy semi soft palate, a little dry. Dark malt, bitterish coffee, subtle red fruit, hop bitterness - grapefruit. Sweeter fruits before the finish. Oddly not much rye spice. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste.
