Danish. Seks år skulle der gå, før Amager Bryghus bryggede en Brown Ale, men nu er den her. På typisk Amager maner, kunne vi ikke lade være med at give den lidt mere karakter og lidt mere humle end den typiske Brown Ale. Dragør Brown er en smuk nøddebrun øl med et tæt og cremet skum. Duften har diskrete chokoladetoner og et frisk pust fra den amerikanske Cascade-humle. Smagen starter med en let sødme fra münchener malten og glider så over i en let ristet karakter med et strejf af mørk chokolade uden nogensinde at blive sød. Humlen er til stede uden at øllen på nogen måde bliver specielt bitter.

English: It took 6 years before Amager Bryghus did a Brown Ale, but now it’s finally here. In typical Amager manner we could not resist the temptation to give the beer a little more character and a little more hops than what is normal for a typical Brown Ale. Hence making it more of a US-style rather than the traditional UK-style. Dragør Brown is a pretty, nutty brown beer with a dense and creamy head. The nose has discreet notes of dark chocolate and receives a fresh burst from the American Cascade hops. The flavor has an initial sweetness from the Munich malt but slides into a lightly roasted territory – again with a whiff of dark chocolate – without ever becoming sweet. The hops are present without ever turning the beer bitter as such.

Bottle description: The Pilot Tower at Dragør Harbour. When the ships passed through the sound (Øresund) in the old days they would raise a signal to ask for pilot assistance. This signal could be seen from the small balcony on top of the pilot quarters. After Dragør Fort was constructed between 1910-1915 it was no longer possible to have a full view of the sound from the balcony. Hence the pilot tower was constructed in 1912. However, the locals disliked the tower immensely and had a petition going round to stop the construction works – all to no avail though. Many years later, when the tower had become obsolete because of modern radio communication, the local authorities wanted to tear down the tower. Once again the locals held a petition, but this time to save the tower that today serves as part of the Danish Pilot Museum.

Derbeth (889) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle with expiry date 07/2017. Dark brown colour, almost black, rocky head that does not stay long, poor lacing. Aroma: quite intensive nuts, also some subtle hops. Light bitterness - but enough to make it interesting. A bit too few body and too much carbonation for my taste. Good.

SlackerMads (3347) - DENMARK - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Malty nose with nuts, twigs and brown bread. The flavour follows with brown bread, grain, dark wood, light cocoa, nuts, light chocolate. Medium body, soft texture, medium sweet with mild bitterness. Soft malty finish. Tasty.

TBone (17314) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Bottled 500ml (Beergium, batch #1139)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma has a bit artifical-like chocolate and rye bread. Light-bodied. Suprisingly thin. Coffee, dark chocolate, dark malts mixed with Cascade give odd perfumic-vanilla combination. Aftertaste is also perfumic. Odd but drinkable.

Sjohnh (913) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Dark brown, with huge off-white head and lacing. Medium body, nothing special on the palate. Nice balance of nuttiness, malt and a touch of dark fruit.

Kita (2095) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Pours clear dark brown color with thick creamy tan-like head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, cocoa, nuts, mild roasted malt and vanilla. Taste starts with medium sweet chocolate and nutty, follows by roasted malt and grassy note, mouthfeel is a bit medicinal, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, sticky texture and average carbonation in palate. Well executed hoppy brown ale...

OminouSC2 (616) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Brown/amber with medium carbonation. Caramel with some fruits, chocolate and bitter finish. A bit thin and overall "meh". Amager can do much better.

DraftDodger (1408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2016
Copenhagen 2/6 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Some rustic picture from Dragør in the 19th century on the label. Part of a series named after diffrent locations on Amager. Pours dark reddish brown with off-white head. Settles as paper thin layer of foam. Sweet aroma of toffee, biscuit, vanilla and bitter chocolate and coffee. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is nicely balanced between medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Short slightly sweet aftertaste. Nice and easy to drink brown ale.
