Danish: Når solstrålerne bliver lange nok til at nå skovbunden og erantis og krokus begynder at pible frem, og når de unge piger på cykelstierne med deres mere begrænsede påklædning begynder at udgøre en trafikrisiko for hormonboblende unge mænd med øjnene alle andre steder end på trafikken, ja SÅ ved du, at det atter er blevet forår over det ganske land. For ølelskerne er det blevet tid til at lade de tunge og mørke øl blive stående i ølkøleskabet og i stedet kigge efter lidt lettere og forårsbebudende øltyper. En sådan øl er Amager Forårsbryg, en Bière de Garde af type, som er fuld af krydrede blomster- og pollentoner. Rig på malt med toner af karamel og så en tør humling, der sikrer at der ingenlunde går sødsuppe i den. Bière de Garde betyder jo egentlig ”øl til at gemme”, men hul i det siger vi på Amager, for vores forårsbryg skal drikkes her og nu – du kan garanteret ikke lade være. Skål for foråret og for lysets komme.

English: When sunbeams reach the forest floor, when winter aconites and crocuses begin to blossom, and when young girls on bicycles in skimpy skirts pose traffic hazard for hormone bubbly young men with their eyes elsewhere than on the traffic, then you know for sure that spring has arrived! At this time of the year it is time for beer lovers to leave the heavy and dark beers in the fridge, and start looking for lighter beers. This “Spring Beer” from Amager Bryghus is a “Bière de Garde” type of beer, which is full of spicy flowers and pollen tones. Rich malt with notes of caramel and dry hopping ensure that the beer isn’t at all too sweet. Bière de Garde actually means "beer for storage" but never mind that we say as our “Spring Beer” must be enjoyed here and now. We dare you… you can hardly resist if you are as excited as we are that springtime has finally come!

Ottima biere de garde, Dorata limpida sottile schiuma. Ottima carbonazione e corpo leggero. Bel naso ma soprattutto buona al palato con una grande nota floreale primaverile. Dolce con malto e una punta di miele.

En fin øl der har frugtnoter og sødlighed fra malten. Lidt humle i den, gerne lidt mere.

Casper0904 (489) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2016
Unclear golden body with a medium long lasting head. Floral, hops, light yeast, malt. Flavour is bitter and floral. Nice bitter aftertaste - but thin taste.

Hopmaestro (1749) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2016
Aroma is slight fruity and minerally with some dust. Taste is straightforward and neutral farmhouse style flavors. Nothing special going on. Easy to drink, light hops, lightly sweet. A little boring.

Dark blond colour. Aroma is very floral with some honey sweetness and pale malts. The flavour has an interesting but not overpowering sweetness. The pale malts also come through strongly.

drjoeng (1380) - SINGAPORE - OCT 7, 2015
6.5%ABV. Bierre de Garde. Poured out of the bottle a rich honey gold, about 16ºSRM. Nose was full of beautiful sweet floral scents like freesias and wisteria in bloom. There are some clean sweet malty aromas that are just achingly mouthwatering. There is a hint of the first strawberries. Beautiful lightly roasted malty flavors predominate, predictably with flavors of graham cracker, bisciut, with a light caramel flavor, buttery toffees, but less so. There is a nice nutty flavor. You have to sruggle to figure all this out as the dry hopping creates a miasma of herbaceous flavors like green apple peel, lemon zest and grapefruit peel. Finish is hyssop bitter. Prolonged and bitter in the very best, refreshing and satisfying way that only well-chosen hops dropped in at just the right moment can deliver.

Bottle @ Arbejdsdag hos sønnen. Golden orange coluor on the body whith a White head on the top. And a medíum long lasting head. fine dash af flowers and some herbal notes. Fine balanced malty back. Recomendable.

There are things rare or very rare: a Danish beer with a French style? The beer is not bad perel price is excessive, and the amount of beer. I do not understand how a people denmark waste time making beer French style not noted for their quality.
