Danish: Med vores lette sommerøl, Amager Summer Fusion, har vi villet bevise, at man sagtens kan lave en øl, som er lav i alkohol men rig på smag. Som navnet antyder, er vores øl en ægte fusionsøl, hvor vi med arme og ben har stjålet inspiration fra flere forskellige stilarter – og fra flere lande.
Gæren, vi har brugt, er en klassisk tysk pilsnergær, som vi meget mod dens vilje har gæret ved 22 grader celsius – en teknik man kender fra den amerikanske øltype ”California Common” eller ”Steam Beer”. På den måde kombinerer vi den sprøde friskhed fra lagerøl med en portion frugtig friskhed, som man oplever i overgæret øl.
Malten, vi bruger, er ikke noget ganske almindeligt valg, vi har grebet sækken med engelsk Mild Ale malt, som giver øllet sin, mørke, ristede karakter, mens et par håndfulde tysk karamelmalt giver lidt sødme og rundhed.
Og så ville det jo ikke være en rigtig Amager øl, hvis ikke vi havde yderst generøse med humlen. Her faldt vores valg på de klassiske amerikanske aromahumler Centennial, Chinook og Amarillo – I ved, sådan nogen der masserer smagsløgene. Og så efterlader disse humler den mest fornøjelige, citrusagtige friskhed.
Er De forvirret? Jamen, det er der slet ingen grund til. Amager Summer Fusion er svaret til de mange, der i årevis har spurgt: ”Hvornår får vi en amerikansk-engelsk tysk over-undergæret pilsner-ale, der smager af en masse uden at man bliver bimmelim?”
Amager Summer Fusion er det officielle bidrag fra Amager Bryghus til konkurrencen på Københavnske Øldage 2007 om at finde den perfekte sommerøl med max. 3,5% alkohol.

ENGLISH: We wanted to prove that we could make a low alcohol beer rich in taste... and we named the outcome "Fusion". As the name indicates it is a true fusion beer due to the fact that our inspiration came from different styles and countries. The yeast is classic German pilsner yeast, which we - against its will, fermented at 71.6°F. This is a technique know from the American styles "California Common" a.k.a. "Steam Beer". Consequently, we were able to combine the crisp freshness from lager beers with a portion of the fruity freshness found in top fermented beers.
Our choice of malt is somewhat unusual as we selected an English Mild Ale malt adding a dark, roasted character to the beer, as well as a couple of handful of German caramel malt adding sweetness and a soft touch to the beer.
And it wouldn’t be a true beer from Amager Bryghus, if we hadn’t been generous with the hops. We chose classic American aroma hops such as Centennial, Chinook, and Amarillo - you know, the ones which really massages your taste buds. Additionally, these hops leave behind the most pleasurable, citric-like freshness.
Are you confused? No reason to be as our Fusion is the answer to the many people who over the years have asked for an American/English/German top and bottom fermented pilsner ale, which has lots of taste but is low on alcohol!
Fusion was 1st runner up at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 2007 in the competition of brewing a beer at maximum 3.5% alcohol.

The foam at this summer beer are both great, rich and persistent. It has good flavors of light hops and lots of flower. Full bodied flavor with clear notes of light fruit. Light citrus gives it a tangy freshness. Overall, a fine summer beer. Fits well with light barbecue dishes with seasonal salad or simply as a thirst quencher on a hot summer day.

Bottle. Hazy golden amber pour, with an off white head. Aroma is terrible, stale grain, wet socks, and moldy fruit. Flavor is better and at least drinkable - floral, grain, light fruit, light sweetness, and some stale bread.

JorisPPattyn (8644) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Hazy orange beer, well-carbonated under a small, but quite stable just off-white head. Flowery, fruity hops’ nose, very inviting however restrained. Nice and delicate. Bitterish, bit dusty and wet cardboard; flavours reach out to rosewater, rosepetals. Well-carbonated, obviously light but nowhere empty. For such a light beer - excellent! Thanks to Stef!

chinchill (3215) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2015
undated but newish looking and cold stored 500 ml bottle served in a pilsner glass. Murky sediment at the bottle fo the bottle not poured. Cap had a solid seal. A: Clear orange-amber body with lots of small bubbles flowing upward.to a generous, durable off-whit head. Smell: uh-oh - smells contaminated. May well be wild yeast but this is supposed to be brewed with classic German pilsner yeast. Taste: not much better, and with a distinct sourness. M: Nice medium-light body with ample but soft carbonation. O: contaminated bottle; will revisit if the opportunity arises.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma- Has a strong barley/cereal aroma with some spice thrown in. Appearance- Pours a dark yellow with a large white head. Taste- A unique flavor that propelled by its high carbonation. has a strong hops flavor Palate- very carbonated, medium bodied beer Overall- no a bad beer at all, I have never seen this before so I am assuming it is a hard beer to find in the southeastern US.
