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.

This beer along with the Kaaad were presented to me from a business partner and friend Simon L. (and Tim). What a jewel of the Danish craft scene the Amager beers are. I would not immediately have tasted this to be an American Pale Ale, but the facettes of this beer are evident and also well rounded.

Bottle at home. Pours amber, with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, foral, maltsbase, orange, strawberry. Taste is tropical fruits, grape, good maltsbase, foral, leading to bitter ending, with notes of pines. This is the stuff, 2-3 Weeks old, damn!

Shark_Pants (452) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2015
Cloudy orange with a large aerated white head. Strong tangerine aroma, mango, passionfruit, fresh bread, grassy and floral hops. The taste has the tangerine citrus as well, along with passionfruit, paw paw/papaya, biscuit, with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied and easy drinking. Very solid pale ale.

luttonm (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2015
At mini-tasting in Belgrade. Thanks Alberto! A little darker orange, big creamy head. Tropical fruit aroma, deep. Tingly carbonation, makes beer lighter. Tropical fruit and pineapple. A touch creamy. Not as good as the 1st Amager tonight.

Hazy amber color, big white head. Sweet aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, malt, citrus, pine and hops. Dry sweet taste with medium bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Thin body and average carbonation. Nice juicy and refreshing ale.

TorbenJensen (519) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
It is a beautiful golden pale ale brewed in cooperation with Three Floyds, as you know, repeatedly voted the world’s best beer. It has a very delicious aroma hops that flavor translates into citrus and exotic fruits like passion, pineapple and peach. Palate is hops strong but also very balanced with malt where fresh grain and light caramel can be found. Very well balanced and accurate pale ale.

On tap @Arte&Sana (Malaga). Pours cloudy amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, light hops traces, pine, lemon, grapefruit. Flavour is sweet with a mild bitter end. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Boring...
