COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Solstenen er srdeles omdiskuteret blandt lrde arkologer. For havde vikingernes navigatrer virkelig et sdant redskab, der kunne afgre hvad der var st, og hvad der var vest - selv p en overskyet dag? Det har vi valgt at tro p! Her mange r senere var en solsten dog ikke ndvendig, da Amager Bryghus blev invaderet fra vest af noget som I udprget grad lignede amerikanske efterkommere af vikingerne. Chris Boggess og Barnaby Struve fra Three Floyds Brewing i Munster, Indiana ankom ikke med skumle motiver om hvn men derimod med en meget hjlydt King Diamond p deres brbare mp3-afspiller. Dette var ikke en dag til slagsml eller hvndrab men til lbrygning. Og brygget det blev der. Den blde og nrmest skrmmende letdrikkelige Arctic SunStone er beviset p, at selv vikingekrigere kan have en mere blid og imdekommende 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.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
September 12, 2015 - on keg at The Kings Arms (Shoreditch). Hazy orange with a foamy white head. Solid aroma - strong resin bitterness, extra malty/grainy, not much alcohol. Taste follows - standard west coast thing, just maltier ... solid body, strong carbonation, surprisingly quick finish and no linger - quite an easy drinker - would have it again in a shot.

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 13, 2017
50cl bottle from Beervana. Pours a hazy orange color with medium off-white head that leaves a fine lacing. Aroma is hoppy, fruity with notes of tropical fruits, orange, passionfruit, mango and traces of citrus. Not much in terms of malt balance. Taste is bitter, but not overly so. Main flavors are fruity but coated with that citrusy (and even piney) astringency. Fairly easy to drink. Relatively low carbonated. Its a well-done Pale Ale, although I expected something special considering the price tag in Chile.

Vestergaard (2074) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2017
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clearish golden orange with a small white head. Aroma has sweaty, dank citra and simcoe hops, quite a lot of malts, citrus, tropical fruits and some grassy/piny notes. Taste is juicy swet up front, gets a little grainy, finishes off slight bitter. An oily, maybe slight diacetyl-like body and a medium low carbonation
