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

A faint nose of American hops a a tad bready malts. Taste is very weak; grapefruit and cucumber. Finish is bitter. This was a bad bottle. I will rerate!

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2009
Aroma of citrus, fruit and hops. Appearance is yellow with small head, not a very good looking beer. Flavor is bitter with hints of pine and grass. Overall a good beer that’s not very complex. A plus for the low alcohol.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
33cl bottle at The Coastguard, Kent. Drinking this against some of the single hop beers was tough on it, but I can see where it was going. Some cereal flavour, some good lemony citrus, bit of orange fruit on the hops. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2009
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy blond color. Powerful aroma, hoppy, floreal, citrusy, lightly sweaty. The mouthfeel is quite weak, there is some dry and spicy wheat flavor and light tangerines. Quite bitter in the end, but I miss some sugars. Refreshing, strange, interesting.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle. Color is golden, medium head. Nose is hoppy and fresh. Flavor is also refreshingly hoppy, overall impression is somewhat watery, though. This is probably a result of ov the low ABV. A light and refreshing brew, nonetheless.

altonbrownd (5768) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle at Cracked Kettle. Pale golden body with medium head. Hoppy and ginger nose. Hoppy taste with some pine, citrus and peaches. Not too strong, just right. Some wheat notes in the finish too.

skortila (5334) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has fresh hop, some grass and fruitiness. Clear, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is slightly bitter, light bodied, but with a lot of hop taste. Refreshing and well brewed.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2009
Dark yellow colored with cloudy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Nice aroma with dominating flowers, some peachy fruitiness also comes up. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more biting with hops, some flowers also come up. Slightly watery and round aftertaste, too much hops for this body.
