COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Med vores lette sommerřl, Amager Summer Fusion, har vi villet bevise, at man sagtens kan lave en řl, som er lav i alkohol men rig pĺ smag. Som navnet antyder, er vores řl en ćgte fusionsřl, hvor vi med arme og ben har stjĺlet inspiration fra flere forskellige stilarter – og fra flere lande.
Gćren, vi har brugt, er en klassisk tysk pilsnergćr, som vi meget mod dens vilje har gćret ved 22 grader celsius – en teknik man kender fra den amerikanske řltype ”California Common” eller ”Steam Beer”. Pĺ den mĺde kombinerer vi den sprřde friskhed fra lagerřl med en portion frugtig friskhed, som man oplever i overgćret řl.
Malten, vi bruger, er ikke noget ganske almindeligt valg, vi har grebet sćkken med engelsk Mild Ale malt, som giver řllet sin, mřrke, ristede karakter, mens et par hĺndfulde tysk karamelmalt giver lidt sřdme og rundhed.
Og sĺ ville det jo ikke vćre en rigtig Amager řl, hvis ikke vi havde yderst generřse med humlen. Her faldt vores valg pĺ de klassiske amerikanske aromahumler Centennial, Chinook og Amarillo – I ved, sĺdan nogen der masserer smagslřgene. Og sĺ efterlader disse humler den mest fornřjelige, citrusagtige friskhed.
Er De forvirret? Jamen, det er der slet ingen grund til. Amager Summer Fusion er svaret til de mange, der i ĺrevis har spurgt: ”Hvornĺr fĺr vi en amerikansk-engelsk tysk over-undergćret pilsner-ale, der smager af en masse uden at man bliver bimmelim?”
Amager Summer Fusion er det officielle bidrag fra Amager Bryghus til konkurrencen pĺ Křbenhavnske Řldage 2007 om at finde den perfekte sommerřl 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.

Light haze on this gold beer. Small off white head. Palate is light and soft with fine minerally carbonation. Lovely sweet floralness with light citrus. Airy light malt cream. Finishes soft with very light bitterness. A lovely low abv beer. Has body and flavour and it went superbly well with spicy food.

Grzesiek79 (3303) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 21, 2013
Wspaniale letnie piwo o niskim procencie i wspanialym aromacie grejfruta i pomaranczy, to wszystko za sprawa silnie aromatycznych amerykanskich chmieli. W smaku podobnie wytrawno cytrusowo ozezwiajacy smak, a wyglad przepiekny zmetniony o kolorze ciemnej pomaranczy z ubita mocno trwala piana. Polecam i nie tylko na letnie upalne dni.

Tükrösen tiszta, arany sárga színe van,habja fehér, vékony és nem túl kitartó.Illata gyümölcsös, malátás, édeskés de ott a komló szigorúsága is. Íze is édeskésen, malátásan és gyümölcsösen kezd, aztŕn jön kl a szép adagkomló, de nem szigorúan keserűen, hanem behízelgően, finoman. Könnyű teste van és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes nem t7l száraz,gyümölcsös. Finom és könnyű.
