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

Plovmand (6323) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium white bubbly head. Amarillo hoppy aroma with fruity and grassy notes. Flavour is quite hoppy with notes of citrus and light malts. Very thirst quenching and refreshing. I expected a lighter body so was a bit surprised by the palate.

yngwie (13219) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle. It’s a clear golden beer with good carbonation and a finger-thick, lasting, wite head. Lacings too. Very citrusy nose, citrus peel that is, with little room left for the malts. Medium body, nicely carbonated, with some sweetness and pale malts, but the hops pull the load in the flavor as well. Mostly citrusy, and with a good bitterness lasting for a long while. Not the typical Mikkeller beer, but a wonderful thirst quencher and every day refresher. 090901

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Clear golden with a dense white head leaving laces. Fresh citrusy hop aroma. Light body, not much of a malt feel, fresh and perfumy aromatic hoppiness wit a massive hop burn. Very fresh session beer. 300809

rane (872) - Nibe, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle. Nice yellow with little white head. Aroma lforal and hoppy, nice amarillo, the best about this beer. Taste hoppy with little body, could use some malt. As intended but missing some wheat. I think I had it too warm.

0.33 l bottle from K-Market Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Golden to copper color. Sweetish aroma with honey and flowery-orangey hops. Bitter, honeyish and salty flavor with fruity-orangey hops. Light bodied. Good aroma but the flavor is unpleasantly salty and coarsely bitter.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - AUG 13, 2009
Clear yellow towards golden with a small but firm white head. Flowery hop aroma with some citrus notes leaning towards sweet oranges. Definetly light in the body with the hop bitterness being the most markant flavor, though its not too powerfull.
