COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Solstenen er særdeles omdiskuteret blandt lærde arkæologer. For havde vikingernes navigatører virkelig et sådant redskab, der kunne afgøre hvad der var øst, og hvad der var vest - selv på en overskyet dag? Det har vi valgt at tro på! Her mange år senere var en solsten dog ikke nødvendig, da Amager Bryghus blev invaderet fra vest af noget som I udpræget grad lignede amerikanske efterkommere af vikingerne. Chris Boggess og Barnaby Struve fra Three Floyds Brewing i Munster, Indiana ankom ikke med skumle motiver om hævn men derimod med en meget højlydt King Diamond på deres bærbare mp3-afspiller. Dette var ikke en dag til slagsmål eller hævndrab men til ølbrygning. Og brygget det blev der. Den bløde og nærmest skræmmende letdrikkelige Arctic SunStone er beviset på, at selv vikingekrigere kan have en mere blid og imødekommende side.

English: The sunstone - much disputed among scholars. Did the Viking navigators really have such a tool that would help them point out what was east and what was west - even on a less than sunny day? We certainly believe so. Many years later no sunstone was needed when Amager Bryghus was invaded by what very much looked like Viking ancestors of American descent. Hailing from Munster, Indiana, Chris Boggess and Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds Brewing arrived not with a vengeance but with very loud King Diamond on their portable mp3 player. This was not a day for slaughter but for brewing. And brew we did. The mellow and dangerously quaffable Arctic SunStone is proof that even Viking warriors can have a more subtle side to them. All hail to Three Floyds.

Ingredients: Water. Malts: Pale, Munich, Melanoidin. Hops: Tomahawk, Citra, Centennial, Simcoe. Yeast: UK-ale.

För att citera Zakk Wylde, som har lika jämnt skägg som den karska vikingen på etiketten: Livet går ut på att hitta något man älskar och sedan köra det i botten. Det här samarbetet mellan Amager och Three Floyds är något jag är villig att offra både kropp och själ till. När jag dör donerar jag gärna det här köttsliga kärlet till vetenskapen, men tills dess får Arctic Sunstone utföra vilka experiment de vill på mig.
