COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Drink’in the Sun er navnet på den længe ventede sommerøl fra Mikkeller. Der er tale om en amerikansk hvede-øl der er brygget med ale-gær og, til alles store overraskelse, masser af humle. Humlen er Amarillo, alkoholprocenten er 3,9 og det fremgår af etiketten, at man med fordel kan bælle den direkte fra flasken. Nu mangler vi bare noget sol og en grill-fest

Bottled (BB 06/2010). Golden color, small white head. Nice citrusy-flowery Amarillo hoppy nose. Crisp zesty mouthfeel. Good hoppy, citrusy-flowery flavor with long bitter aftertaste. More robust than 3.9% indicates ... excellent session beer and refreshing Summer drink.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2009
Flaske: Pilsnergul øl med et fint skumhoved. Tydelig amarillo humle i duften, virkelig lækker og letdrikkelig. Helt klart en åbenlys cross over beer, plus en fantastisk session beer.

Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head. Slightly vineous peach hop aroma. Dry, drinkable fruity flavour with a good hoppy finish.

Bottle. Drank it ice cold and straight from the bottle - just as recommended on the label.. Aromas of citrus and hops. The flavour is super crisp and dry with notes of fruity hops, pine, apples and wheat. Nice 3,9 % brew! Well done.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle 0,33 l. Clear golden with a greenish tint, fizzy head. Nose is fresh, gummy bears, some malts. Flavor is bitterish, thin with some gummy bears there too. Quite boring and not something I’d buy again, even tho I like mild ales.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Clear yellow golden body. Mild fruity and malty hoppy aroma. Pretty dry and hoppy fruity flavor with low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste. Grass and pine notes are evident. Very tasty for such a low alcohol beer.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours almost clear golden with a fine, staying, frothy, white head. Nice hoppy aroma, lots of grassy and piney hops. A touch of sweetish wheat. Light carbonation, a tad watery, but nicely dry. Flavour is hoppy, very grassy, very light sweetness. Lovely crispness with a long, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Very lovely for such a low alcochol beer.
