COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Hailing out of Little Village, Chicago, and with a strict Irish background, the MacDunnes had been patriots since the day the first family member set her foot on American soil. Male MacDunnes had been volunteering for every war they possibly could. So, the day that young Garret turned 18 it was both expected and with a natural pride that he enlisted to fight for his country in the Vietnam war as part of the 1st Battalion, 9th Marines. As a private he was hailed through some of the fiercest battles of the war: Khe Sanh, Hamburger Hill, the Tet Offensive you name it – Garret was there. Wounded several times but strictly alive unlike many of his fighting compadres. Actually, he’d lost so many that his battalion was nicknamed “The Walking Dead” due to their extreme casualty rate. When Garret returned to Chicago after three years in hell, he was utterly disillusioned and soon became a very outspoken voice against the war. He was a prominent member of the anti-war movement, and taking up music he was famous for his long concerts for peace played on a mobile organ with a distinct Ray Manzarek inspiration. Part of his fame could clearly be attributed to the strange fact that he would always perform without pants, due to a severe skin rash he brought home from the war. This collaboration beer made with one of Chicago’s finest craft breweries is named in honor of this true American patriot and peace activist.

yngwie (17365) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2018
Bottle. A well carbonated pale golden colored beer with a finger-thick white head leaving lacing. The aroma is on the fruity side, a bit weak perhaps, with grapefruit, pine cones and a generic tropical fruit touch. Pine cones, grapefruit and a light malty touch in the flavor. Decent bitterness, although a bit lower levels than I prefer. It’s full to medium bodied, quite dry and with a pleasant carbonation. Long hop-driven finish. Nothing special going on, but it’s sure a fine one. 180210

God, men noget ordinær øl fra Amager Bryghus. Fin smag og aroma. God bitterhed.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2018 Turbid yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium off-white head. Medium aroma; taste starts medium sweet and ends slightly bitter and dry. Lovely grain, tropical fruit and hops. Feels like a hopped pilsner to me, but it is great.

22/X/17 - 50cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte), shared @ Alengrin's Tasting (Goedele's place) - BB: VII/2018 (2017-1804)

Clear pale blond beer, big irregular white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, grains, little fruity, bit of mango, pineapple, bit yeasty, weird smell. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little sourish, some passion fruit, citrus, bitter, little grassy, pretty dry. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of grapefruit, apricots and peaches, bit chemical in the finish. More like a fruity saison, rather than a session ipa.

Bottle, thanks Beerhunter111. Blonde. Citrus, grass abd pineapple in the aroma. Malty yet thinnish, slightly herbal grassy flavor with loads of fruit. Lemon, pineapple and passion fruit. Nice, friendly and well hopped.

Pinball (12641) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2017
bottle. kid you not, bought from beergium in belgium (and i live less then 10 kilometers from amager brewery). hazy yellow, smooth white head.somewhat faint aroma, but what is there, is quite potent exotic fruity with pineapple and something herbal citrussy like lemongrass. Quite nice aroma. flavor is quite mild, with a complex hoppy blanket of flavors on top of some flowery sweet malts. Quite quenching session ipa, a little on the sweet side, but it works very well. I'm going to enjoy the rest of this bottle, whose travel itinary has been fairly pointless.

Alengrin (5996) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle shared by Erwin, thanks. Mosaic-hopped session IPA made at Amager in collaboration with Pipeworks - and as usual with Amager, with a long and trailing backstory on the label which I will not bother to read. Thick and frothy, cobweb-lacing, egg-white head over a misty 'lemon yellow' beer with greenish tinge. Aroma of lime zest, stale lemon juice, starfruit, gooseberry juice, white bread, withering spring onions, unripe banana. Clean fruitiness in the onset, lime juice aspects mingled with raw pineapple and starfruit notes, low in sweetness but sweetened by a doughy, lightly bready maltiness, fizzy carbonation. Bit cereally towards the end but adorned with very aromatic, tropical, zesty hoppiness, old grapefruit juice and lemon rind, refreshing and elegant but only mildly bittering. Could have been more bitter for me, but other than that a delicate and fragrant little beer that serves its purpose well.
