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.

Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark brown color with creamy head. The aroma of darker malts is a bit dusty. Flavor of roasted malts and chocolate, quite dry, dusty again, with correct bitterness, but it has too much liquorice; some sweetness appears in the end, some chocolate too.
Nordic taste; not my favorite.
