COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Det siges at Kain drćbte sin bror i ren og skćr misundelse. Pĺ Amager Bryghus mener vi mĺske nok, at drab er at gĺ lidt for vidt. Men vi indrřmmer at vi er misundelige. Misundelige fordi vi ikke var de fřrste til at brygge den řltype, som vi beundrer mest: en sprřd og humlet West Coast IPA. Vi slĺr altsĺ ikke nogen ihjel, fordi vi ikke var de fřrste til at komme pĺ idéen, i stedet vil vi gerne prćsentere ”Envy” – vores bud pĺ denne řltype. Vi er ydmyge – og dog misundelige.
Vi er ikke stolte over at vćre syndere, men i det mindste er vi ĺbne omkring det...

English: Cain is said to have murdered his brother out of envy. At Amager Bryghus we believe that murder is taking things a bit far. However, we admit to being envious because we weren’t the first brewer to come up with the beer style we admire the most: a crisp and hopped up West Coast IPA. We won’t kill anybody because we didn’t come up with the idea first, instead we present to you “Envy” - our take on this style. Humble – yet envious.
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Brewed from: Pilsener and Munich malts. Hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe and Centennial and fermented with an American ale yeast.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, - OCT 20, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Krásné chmelové aroma, připomínající exotické ovoce, s lehkým náznakem sladu. Pěna je středně vysoká, jemná, jasně bílé barvy a držící. Barva samotného piva je oranžová a kalná. Chuť je vcelku robustní, má silný nádech pomeranče ve středu a poměrně rychle a rázně nastupující finiš, jehož hořkost je velmi silná a držící na patře a u kořene jazyka. Celkově se jedná o velmi zajímavé pivo, s velmi lahodným aroma a příjemným vzhledem, nicméně chuť je vcelku ubita velmi silnou a rychle nastupující hořkostí, která také ubírá na pitelnosti.

Hazy golden color, big white head. Aroma has malt, tropical fruits, grass, citrus, hops. Taste has malt, citrus, grass and hops - dry sweet with hoppy bitter finish and long aftertaste. Thin to medium body and average carbonation. Decent bitter ale, not complex but quite drinkable.

Hazy gold beer, tidy off white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Airy malt, little cream. Grapefruit bitterness contrasts with honey floralness. Light touches of hard candy sweets and sherbet. Smooth bitter finish. Interesting and tasty!

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is what I call celery. Med body. Flavor is very herb/veg over mild caramel. Quite clean. Alternatively it’s earthy citrus with a strong hop bite. Finishing very bitter.
