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.

angel77 (536) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 14, 2014
Botella de 50 cl. del lúpulo. Lote 629 hasta 07/2014. Tomada en el momento en 14-04-2014. Color anaranjado a marrón muy turbio con bastantes sedimentos. Espuma blanca a marfil no muy persistente. Aromas bastante afrutados y dulces al principio con algo de lúpulo fresco. Cuerpo medio fácil de beber con 6 vol. Sabores también dulces afrutados de frutas tropicales con toques de maltas ligeramente tostadas y caramelo acabando con ligeros herbáceos de lúpulo verde y fresco. Muy buena refrescante, ligera y afrutada con lo justo de amargo. Gran colaboración amager _ three floyds. Para repetir muchas mas veces sin duda. En esta ultima los lúpulos se encuentran un poco apagados y no tan frescos, sobretodo al final. Botella de 50 cl en el lúpulo en noviembre de 2013. lote 629 hasta 07/2014.

Dohny (148) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 1, 2014
Poured from bottle. Hazy orange with small white head. In aroma dominates citrusy hops, apricot. Taste matches with aroma. Grapefruit zest. Some soapy notes. Balance towards bitterness. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitterness dominates the taste from beginning and lasts long in aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
