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

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.

330ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi) - shared with Mirjukka and Janne
Peachy fruity taste, amarillo or simcoe. Light refreshing palate - fruity. Very tasty for 3.9% - a classic Pale Ale. Long hoppy finish - delicious.

Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma had hops and pine. Favour was maty with loads of amarilo, grapefruit and pine notes. Didn’t pick up that much wheat from it. Finished bitter and dry.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2009
From tap at Lord Nelson. Pours almost clear golden yellow to orange with a fully gone head. Mild orange fruity and crisp aroma. Orange fruity, mango, grapefruity and light citrusy flavoured. Although quite smooth and very light bodied, yet not watery thin. Lasting bitter and dry hoppy also quite fruity finish.
