COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lilja (3100) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, choklad, rostade toner och aningar av kaffe och mörk frukt. Väldigt jämn och fin i smaken med en riktig tydlig och välsmakande chokladarom. Lagom sötma med en lång eftersmak och fin beska. En väldigt trevlig brown ale.

Mothroy (91) - - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Deep, reddish brown with a white, thin but creamy head. Not a lot in the aroma but stacks of character in the flavour. Roast malt, vanilla and a subtle sweetness is well balanced by just enough hop bitterness. No discernible hop flavour though, which I was expecting. Good new brewery.

Sigmund (7230) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Batch #620, ABV is 5.5%. Brown colour, large beige head. Strong aroma of moderately roasted malts, brown bread and chocolate, hints of fruity hops. The flavour is both smooth and full of character at the same time: brown malts, lightly roasted malts, caramel and chocolate without being very sweet, all balanced by just the right amount of hops. One of the best brown ales I’ve had.

Cool_Bond (2569) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
Wonderful aroma of roasted malt. The flavor is moderately hopped with small hints of caramel. The aftertaste fills the upper part of the mouth with a nice bitterness that is still very long. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Clear chestnut brown body, medium head. Aroma has a soft roastiness with cocoa powder and light notes of Cascade. Smooth roasty taste with more dry cocoa and medium levels of Cascade hops. A nicely balanced Brown Ale with a good combination of malts and hops. I like it.
