Danish: P Amager Bryghus har vi aldrig lagt skjul p, at vi er gte humlehoveder. Vi elsker den lille grnne kogle for alt hvad den gr ved llet. Og som alle ved, er det slet ikke s lidt: duft, smag, bitterhed og holdbarhed.
Vi hrte for et par r siden ude i byen, at skaldte Single-hop l skulle vre trendy, s p et direktionsmde i frokoststuen besluttede vi, at Amager Bryghus ogs mtte have sin egen Single-hop serie. Men da nsten alle humler allerede er gennemprvet grundigt i alverdens Single-hop l-serier, s valgte vi at g nye veje.
Vores gode, faste humleleverandr serverede os tre eksperimentelle humler, som endnu ikke er kommercialiseret. Om de nogensinde bliver det ved ingen endnu, derfor har de heller ikke rigtige navne. S mine damer og herrer, byd velkommen til humlerne: HBC 342, HBC 436, HBC 517. De er helt nye, grnne og uprvede, s tag godt imod dem.
Hver af disse tre eksperimentelle humler fr hermed sin egen l. Maltprofilen er den samme, en let Pale Ale. Vi er ikke ude p at lave humlebomber, s den strste mngde af humlen er tilsat sent. Desuden har vi trhumlet kraftigt for at fremhve humlernes aromatiske egenskaber snarere end bitterheden.
Hber du m nyde denne anderledes American Pale Ale.

Christian (13281) - Odense, - OCT 5, 2012
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Mild fruity hop aroma with a herbal touch. Sweetish fruity hoppy flavour with some green leaves and grassy hop notes. Not going to be next years fashion hop

yngwie (16821) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Its an almost clear one, dark golden in color and topped by a big, creamy, off-white head. Nice maltyness in the aroma, with grassy, piney, lightly citrusy hops. Some peaches too. The flavor has a nice bitterness dealing with the malts, and both grass, pine cones and a citrusy touch. Full to medium body, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Bitter finish. A quite nice and refreshing one. 130111

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Very high and beautiful, good looking creamy dense white head. Hazy amber body. Mild green apples grapefruit aroma. Milder and a bit sweeter than both the Storm and the Lundsbak editions. It feels more dusty as well. The hops bitterness is also more mild. Low carbonation, short dry finish.

Review from backlog, bottle tasted 09/29/2012. Light orange caramel pour. Aroma is light citrus, grassy, herbal, stale caramel hops. Taste is nice clean citrus character, mild maltiness. Light, crisp palate. Alright.

Palme (4433) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Henrik. This is a light blurry deep bronze colored one with a medium sized off-white light creamy top. Smells nice with raspberry juice, fresh peaches and some malts. Easy to drink with a soft oily mouthfeel and a nice soft carbonation level. Again, light peachy flavors and it has lots of orange plums. Light grassy with traces of tarmac in the finish. Nice and easy. 05.07.2013

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 7, 2013
24/05 A 0.5l bottle courtesy of Marko/ogivlado, thanks! It poured hazy orange body with small head. Fine sweetish orange and toasted malt aroma. Sweetish flavor, fruity, somewhat hoppy, but very watery and thin bodied. Light hops bitterness in the finish. Extremely simple and light, you cant believe its over 5% ABV. Didnt ring my bells, this is even an overrate.

Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and great thx to Papsoe for sending me a bunch of Amager beers to celebrate my 5K milestone. Hazy orange/amber coloured, small off-white head, aromatic fruity hoppy nose. Moderate malty, fruity hoppy and light caramel with pretty strong bitter finish and long-lasting aftertaste.

Hazy amber beer, good off white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. A little creamy malt. Mild minerals. Hops provide bitterish tangerine with traces of lime and mint. There is something else here like apricot but its hard to pin down. Finishes fresh with mild bitterness. Didnt blow me away this beer or hop but it did grow on me a lot.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Another one from the wonderful Mr. Paps. Batch 479. Poured a murky dark honey colour with a small slightly off whtie head. Tangy nose, honey, some fresh fruity notes in the aroma... hm... noted "raspberry-though-not-really". The taste... nice jammy aroma hop notes, ashy and herbal bitterness, light lime, balanced, fresh, drinkable. Does its job well. Not sure what I think of the hop though.
