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.

Bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a white head. Hoppy, pine, grape, cat piss, hint of plastic. Bitter. Feels rather thin and one dimensional with s sharp bitterness.

jamestulloch (3696) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Murky amber body with a huge off-white head that holds. Lively carbonation. Aroma of peach, bread and pine. Flavour of grapefruit, peach and yeast. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Very fizzy. A soft, uncomplicated APA. Nice.

Fin (9931) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Online Store, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at home whilst cooking Wild Mushroom Pilau and Dhaniya Keema, Friday 6th January 2017 Large frothy big bubbly white head, hazy light amber in colour. In many respects this shared similar characteristics to the Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter, though perhaps this is a little bit soapy hops. Middling bitterness, not much sweetness (not a bad thing). Soft carbonation, a little watery lemonade soda thing going on. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

javiercrasher (369) - Granada, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2017
No se que paso, me esperaba algo ms, igual estaba fra, pero me pareci bastante plana. Muy turbia, poco aromtica y sin intensidad. Batch 1445 BB 2017/10

DonGregorio (115) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber beer with small white head. Faint aroma of citrus, caramel and light unpleasant note I am not able to describe. Taste is light sweet, medium- bitter - citrus and caramel. Medium- body, average carbonation. Decent and drinkable, but also very strange and disappointing - aromas already gone (8 months before bbd), too much caramel.

josanguapo (1313) - SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
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 (1149) - 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 (540) - 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 (374) - 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 tropikw, żywicy, jakieś słodkie nuty wanilii i lukrecji, dosyć to wszystko mdławe. Goryczka średnia, grejpfrutowa. Średnio jak na Amagera. Butelka do 04/2017
