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.

Aroma is dank/grassy hops, citrus and a small hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, fruit, light grapefruit, tropical fruit and a mix of mild hop resin and tart/bitterness in the finish.

kustie (98) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Sitruunaa ja humalaa tuoksussa. Myös aavistus karamellimaisuutta. Katkera, mutta tasapainoinen maku. Hedelmäisyyttä loppumaussa.

Ernest (6148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon oil), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of garlic, cat pee, celery. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean/vegetal. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Blah, definitely not my kinda pale ale...harsh citrus hops with background notes that people associate with Simcoe (vegetal/garlic, etc.), and as with the Simcoe IPA from Mikkeller, I wonder why people use this hop at all...it’s just not pleasant. Some raw, doughy yeast doesn’t help either. Acrid and dirty tasting in the mouth. A drain pour for me. Such a hit and miss brewery, Amager.

Bygers (670) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Pours pale yellow, very thin head which disapears almost immediately. Grapefruit on the Nose and hops. Taste of citrus and pine hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
murky hay, puffy head falls fast, laces well. Nose is huge orange with light cantaloupe balance, not too sugary as result but muddled and with no counterpart. Juicy front palate is all fruit, oily until glue bitterness mid with light dough, more orange in the grating finish.

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Tropical fruit bubble gum hop nose with quieter notes of grass, sap, musty oranges and apricots, sweat. Medium body, semi-sweet, some malt coarseness. Oily alpha acid juiciness; finishing bitterness strong. For a single hop Simcoe pale ale (that is really IPA) it’s surprisingly good. There’s no cat pee or garlic, but it’s still a bit fruit-goopy, though not ruined by sweetness. If kept clear without much yeast getting in to the glass, it’s a fine experience and significantly better than the average pale ale coming out of western breweries.

pushkinwow (1961) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
500ml bottle. Somewhat cloudy pale orangy amber with a generous bubbly off white head that fades to a thin layer. Milt citrus (predominantly orange with some peach) hop with an undertone of mild caramel malt. Moderate carbonation and mild+ body, slightly bitter, quite dry, more citrusy on the finish, interesting way to demonstrate that straight forward ingredients can still result in a complex and tasty beer.

Golden bubbly body, 2-thumb off-white hue, some lacings. Grapefruit, peaches, mango, ananas (pineapple) and fruity malts to the nose. Grapefruit, solid hops, perifere ananas and ashy malts to the tongue. Solid fresh body, suitable carb, bittersweet nice and dry. Finishes bittersweet with a herbal barbecue atmosphere, really tasty.
