COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi er hårdtarbejdende folk her på Amager Bryghus. Og kun en sjælden gang er vi dovne. Men det sker. Og vi må indrømme, at vi var dovne, da vi designede denne øl. Én malt, én humle – omend en god en af slagsen – og så vores husgær. Vi mener, hvor svært kan det være at skabe en god session-egnet American Pale Ale? Den har du her. Sommetider er brygning hårdt arbejde, sommetider er det en kunst, og sommetider er det bare som en gåtur i parken. Gå en tur, slap af på en bænk i solen. Vær dovne med os og nyd en ”Sloth”. Vi garanterer, at du ikke vil fortryde det. Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: We’re hardworking people here at Amager Bryghus. Only once in a while are we lazy bastards. But it happens. We have to admit that we were lazy when we designed this beer. One malt, one hop – albeit a good one – and then our house yeast. Well, how hard can it possibly be to create a sessionable American Pale Ale? And that’s what we’re offering you here. Sometimes brewing is hard work. Sometimes it’s a work of art. And then sometimes it’s a walk in the park. Take a stroll, sit and relax on a park bench in the sun and be lazy with us. We promise you won’t regret it. We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…
Brewed simply from pilsener malt and Simcoe hops and fermented with an American yeast strain.

RexTalionis (2348) - FINLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden in color with a small head. Grass, green herbs and some forresty notes in aroma. Bitterness in taste, and yes some vegetables too. Meh. Later on more dry in taste, some herbalness and grassyness as well. Get’s a bit better towards the end. Bitter finish.

fantti (680) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Kaatuu pikkutulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameahkona, vaahto on noin 1-1,5 sormen paksuinen ja melko pysyvä. Hajusta työntyy jo kauas lasista hyvin vahva greippi ja veriappelsiini/verigreippi. Kunnolla tuoksuttelemalla löytyy lisäksi melko vahvaa puumaisuutta, mutta melko suoraviivaisesti mennään sitruksen puolella. Hieman makeaa karamellia tuntuu huljuttelemalla. Maku ei pysty ihan samaan, nyt mennään vahvemmin puumaisuuden puolella sitruksen tullessa lopussa vasta tueksi. Paljon muuta ei löydykään, vaan makukin on hyvin yksipuolinen. Sinänsä kyllä toimiva. Suutuntuma on hyvin katkera APAksi, ja oikeaoppisesti kuiva kokonaisuuden ollessa keskitäyteläinen+. Suoraviivainen APA, joka ehkä hivenen yksitoikkoinen ollakseen ihan huippu. Tuoksu ja suutuntuma ovat tämän oluen parhaat puolet.

TET (1569) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
A hazy, light yellow with a hint of orange colour. A head is quite big, blond and slightly clouding. The nose is great and exotic, papaiyas are dominating, some grapefruits and mandarin, also a hint of prickly nuancees. Overally, the focus is in the exotic fruits. Taste is also exotic, balanced bitterness that is grapefruity with pine needles. The end is long and piney-resiny. Quite smooth and pleasant to drink with medium body. This is good beer, even the best freshness is decreasing after a while. Exotic fruit basket with enough of bitterness.

al53 (66) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Bit hazy golden colour with fast fading large white head. Sweet, hoppy, tropical aroma with grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits and malt. Taste is grassy and soapy with grapefruit, citrus and pines. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation. Very long, dry, bitter, hoppy and grapefuity finish. Excellent fresh ipa-like apa.

DrSilverworm (6011) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2014
6oz pour, on tap at Neon’s. A full pour is listed for $9 a 10oz. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Good thin off-white head. Leaves good dots and bits of lace. Good piney citrus hop up front in the nose. Some peppery bready malt. A light bit of older hop mustiness that I often find in belgian hop-forward beers. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, more dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Solid, very hoppy, more bitter pale ale. Kind of assertive though, not really what I’d call sessionable.

sloth (2452) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Large off white head with very good retention and plenty of lace. Hazy, gold colored brew. Nose is flowery, citrusy and a hint soapy, metallic notes as well. Lightly medium in body, good carbonation, slightly acidic, some aspirin,y notes and a hint resiny. Juicy hop flavors, tropical and melony with some juicy fruit notes and a faint bready maltiness, dry. Dry finish, healthy bite but the astringency is a bit bothersome. Otherwise a better than expected APA from these folks. Bottle procured at statelineliquors.
