COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hidsig American Barleywine. Brygget i anledning af en af ejernes næstefødte – skal kunne holde til at blive gemt i 15-20 år til hun kan drikke den.
For nogle år siden blev I præsenteret for “Krogsaa” i anledning af en familieforøgelse i ejerkredsen af Ølbaren. Nu er den gal igen, og atter har Amager Bryghus fået opgaven at frembringe en øl til afkommet. Krogsaa 2 er brygget til en pige, derfor har den en meget hidsig bitterhed! Det er en “American Barleywine”, dvs. en aldeles voldsomt humlet barleywine, på 11%. Den er brygget i juni måned, og det meste af den friske, blomstrede humlesmag er derfor væk nu. Tilbage står en kraftig sødme, og en meget kraftig bitterhed!

English: Brewed to celebrate the second offspring of one of the owners of Ølbaren, this American Barleywine has a fierce bitterness from excessive use of hops.
