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

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.

Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy deep golden, almost no head. Citric grapefruit aroma. Light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Fairly crisp and nicely hoppy. Really drinkable with medium bitterness. A well balanced, aromatic lawn mover beer.

Slightly hazy gold beer. Crisp palate but turns frothy quickly. Light citrussy hops that manage to pack some bitterness. Finishes softish with some minerals. A good flavour for it’s abv and a great session beer - which I guess was the point!

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.
