COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Med vores lette sommerl, Amager Summer Fusion, har vi villet bevise, at man sagtens kan lave en l, som er lav i alkohol men rig p smag. Som navnet antyder, er vores l en gte fusionsl, hvor vi med arme og ben har stjlet inspiration fra flere forskellige stilarter og fra flere lande.
Gren, vi har brugt, er en klassisk tysk pilsnergr, som vi meget mod dens vilje har gret ved 22 grader celsius en teknik man kender fra den amerikanske ltype California Common eller Steam Beer. P den mde kombinerer vi den sprde friskhed fra lagerl med en portion frugtig friskhed, som man oplever i overgret l.
Malten, vi bruger, er ikke noget ganske almindeligt valg, vi har grebet skken med engelsk Mild Ale malt, som giver llet sin, mrke, ristede karakter, mens et par hndfulde tysk karamelmalt giver lidt sdme og rundhed.
Og s ville det jo ikke vre en rigtig Amager l, hvis ikke vi havde yderst generse med humlen. Her faldt vores valg p de klassiske amerikanske aromahumler Centennial, Chinook og Amarillo I ved, sdan nogen der masserer smagslgene. Og s efterlader disse humler den mest fornjelige, citrusagtige friskhed.
Er De forvirret? Jamen, det er der slet ingen grund til. Amager Summer Fusion er svaret til de mange, der i revis har spurgt: Hvornr fr vi en amerikansk-engelsk tysk over-undergret pilsner-ale, der smager af en masse uden at man bliver bimmelim?
Amager Summer Fusion er det officielle bidrag fra Amager Bryghus til konkurrencen p Kbenhavnske ldage 2007 om at finde den perfekte sommerl med max. 3,5% alkohol.

ENGLISH: We wanted to prove that we could make a low alcohol beer rich in taste... and we named the outcome "Fusion". As the name indicates it is a true fusion beer due to the fact that our inspiration came from different styles and countries. The yeast is classic German pilsner yeast, which we - against its will, fermented at 71.6F. This is a technique know from the American styles "California Common" a.k.a. "Steam Beer". Consequently, we were able to combine the crisp freshness from lager beers with a portion of the fruity freshness found in top fermented beers.
Our choice of malt is somewhat unusual as we selected an English Mild Ale malt adding a dark, roasted character to the beer, as well as a couple of handful of German caramel malt adding sweetness and a soft touch to the beer.
And it wouldnt be a true beer from Amager Bryghus, if we hadnt been generous with the hops. We chose classic American aroma hops such as Centennial, Chinook, and Amarillo - you know, the ones which really massages your taste buds. Additionally, these hops leave behind the most pleasurable, citric-like freshness.
Are you confused? No reason to be as our Fusion is the answer to the many people who over the years have asked for an American/English/German top and bottom fermented pilsner ale, which has lots of taste but is low on alcohol!
Fusion was 1st runner up at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 2007 in the competition of brewing a beer at maximum 3.5% alcohol.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 3, 2015
Pronunced opalescent golden light orange colour with a frothy off-white head. Coherent viscousity and lacings. Aromas of hay, straw, some biscuits with ried orange peel and herbal notes arise. Softly carbonated, mellow smoothness and light bodied. Some barnyard, grainy sweetness offering well balanced orange fruity bitter impressions. Short light dry finish. Pleasant session beer.

bartlebier (3777) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
50cl bottle shared by bursprak&posse @Aarhus Belgisk Blmuslinger Tasting 08/2015, tak. A theoretically fascinating style (yeast, malt) crossover of EU steam beer hijacked by the Amager-brash resinous hop profile of an APA. - Crisp, clean mouthfeel accomodating floral and citrus blossom hop perfumes, less so the richer UK malt textures as in the original Anchor Steam. Chinook and Cascade soon stage a pithy, piney take over of what could just as well have been a US-Danish Klsch. Eminently drinkable, but less inspiring than hoped hybrid.
