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.

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.

0,5 l bottle, courtesy of and shared with Ogreface, thanks!
Poured opalescent hay yellow with a fine creamy white head. Some pine and resin, juniper, light tropical fruits in the nose. Easy bodied, easy drinkable but tasty ale with resin and pine, some light malty backbone, fruity yeasts, juniper. Resinous aftertaste. Really fine;-)

hazy dark golden colour, medium off white head; aroma of grassy and floral hops with hints of citrus anf fruity aromas; taste of fresh hoppy bitterness with citrussy notes again; really great lager which perfectly mimic a pale ale :-)

Bottle. Pours clear golden/orange with a large, dense white head leaving nice lacing. Nice aroma of red fruits, grapefruit, mango and some caramel malts. Taste is also quite fruity and very crisp with a soft to medium bitterness. Decent body for 3.5% and a medium carbo. A very nice and crisp beer, although a bit more bittering hop would make it better.

Lovende krydret duft, men den mangler lidt krop fra malten. Balancen tipper dermed for langt mod det bitre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From WLVL. This stuff really grows on you. I wasn’t too hopeful at first as the bottle was a little bit skunked but the grassy crisp refreshing flavor with herbal hops and fizzy body was very good for the low strength. Serving: Bottle

500 ml bottle thanks to Papso. Pours a hazy copper with a velvety white head of foam. The aroma has grass, grapefruit, and dough. Taste is faintly bitter up front and moves toward a bready finish.

Sappy113 (4) - Ramlřse, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2013 does not count
Nice orange color, like a beefed up pilsner. Very nice aroma of fruity hoppiness, dominated by peaches and citrus. Aroma could’ve been even more intense without losing any appeal at all, because it’s really enticing. Flavour is again sweetly citrusy, slightly floral and combined with the thinninsh texture makes for a very easily drinkable beer. Recommended, especially if youre looking for a refreshing beer for summertime or just to wind down without feeling like a complex assault on your palate.
