COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Solstenen er særdeles omdiskuteret blandt lærde arkæologer. For havde vikingernes navigatører virkelig et sådant redskab, der kunne afgøre hvad der var øst, og hvad der var vest - selv på en overskyet dag? Det har vi valgt at tro på! Her mange år senere var en solsten dog ikke nødvendig, da Amager Bryghus blev invaderet fra vest af noget som I udpræget grad lignede amerikanske efterkommere af vikingerne. Chris Boggess og Barnaby Struve fra Three Floyds Brewing i Munster, Indiana ankom ikke med skumle motiver om hævn men derimod med en meget højlydt King Diamond på deres bærbare mp3-afspiller. Dette var ikke en dag til slagsmål eller hævndrab men til ølbrygning. Og brygget det blev der. Den bløde og nærmest skræmmende letdrikkelige Arctic SunStone er beviset på, at selv vikingekrigere kan have en mere blid og imødekommende side.

English: The sunstone - much disputed among scholars. Did the Viking navigators really have such a tool that would help them point out what was east and what was west - even on a less than sunny day? We certainly believe so. Many years later no sunstone was needed when Amager Bryghus was invaded by what very much looked like Viking ancestors of American descent. Hailing from Munster, Indiana, Chris Boggess and Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds Brewing arrived not with a vengeance but with very loud King Diamond on their portable mp3 player. This was not a day for slaughter but for brewing. And brew we did. The mellow and dangerously quaffable Arctic SunStone is proof that even Viking warriors can have a more subtle side to them. All hail to Three Floyds.

Ingredients: Water. Malts: Pale, Munich, Melanoidin. Hops: Tomahawk, Citra, Centennial, Simcoe. Yeast: UK-ale.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 From Miguel. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 5. Initially feels soft and sweet, with tangerine-like fruityness. Later the bitterness becomes much more noticeable. Memorable aftertaste

alteregoo (1075) - POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 PTP kran: zlote, dosc klarowne z ladna piana. Aromat cytrusowy i lekko zywiczny, niezbyt intensywny, ale przyjemny, czysty. W smaku delikatne, wytrawne, ze srednia do niskiej grejpfrutowa goryczka. Wysycenie nie za duze, drobne. Bardzo smukle, eleganckie, delikatne piwo, choc moze odrobine wodniste.

Beertobealive (522) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - NOV 2, 2016
Pours a thick beige head with subtle hops aromas. Dark orange colored body. Bitter old hops in mouth, excellent low alcoholic out of meal beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

romanstep (324) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 23, 2016
W nosie średnio intensywnie, słodkie cytrusy, ananas, żywica, herbatniki. Barwa złota, lekka opalizacja, piana szybko się dziurawi i opada. W smaku średnio wytrawne, dość płaskie, trochę tropików, żywicy, jakieś słodkie nuty wanilii i lukrecji, dosyć to wszystko mdławe. Goryczka średnia, grejpfrutowa. Średnio jak na Amagera. Butelka do 04/2017

BrettGT (199) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2016
Fresh bottle. Aroma of orange, mandarin, bread, pine, rye? Pours out a murky almost brown colour with an off white head. Not great looking. Taste is softly bitter and medium sweet with notes of mandarin, bread, pine. Not that bitter for a Amager brew. Medium body, very easy drinking, soft carbonation, fruity and mildly bitter finish. If you expect the usual more intense bitterness you’ll be dissapointed. This is all about hop flavours, not bitterness.

Jimbo2 (247) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2016
Solid enough, although by no means the the best from Amager. Fairly mellow hops, little carbonation.

humpah (162) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2016
0,5l bottle from Beergium, best before 11/16 so not the freshest batch. Pours golden colour with moderate head. Aroma of malts, citrus, fruits, slight caramel. Pleasant to drink.
