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

(on bottle) This is my favorite beer of ´09. Light yellow, hoppy, very fresh hops, almost elderflowerish. Dry, fresh, perky. like liking hopcones and lemonsorbet, whilest drinking summer sun on the beach; it´s a grand summer beer for sure.

M’ARCOlizzo (31) - ITALY - JAN 21, 2010
Color giallo oro ed abbondante schiuma bianca. Aroma molto fresco, a tratti fruttato, e con pungenti note agrumate date dal luppolo. In bocca il gusto è caratterizzato dall’abbondante luppolatura. Il corpo molto leggero, ma non annacquato, la rende di facile beva e molto godibile. Finale moderatamente amaro e secco caratterizzato dal luppolo.

thewolf (12078) - 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.

Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Blonde. Citrus and some oily hops in the aroma. Thin, but very tasty. Oily citric earthy hops dominate. Very refreshing top quality ale with a firm citric hopbitter aftertaste.

Have had this several times - both of the bottle and on draught. First time I tasted it i didnt feel there was much to it...next time it grew and by now I am a fan. Its so refreshing and is precisely what it says - a summer beer. It pours a light golden with a nice white top that has a foamy caracter. The nose is pretty hoppy with sweet undertones of citrusfruits. The taste is mild with a pretty sharp bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium with a creamy touch. Taste of hops, soaps, grapefruits and fresh (green) nuts. This brew is much different from most things ive had before... bring a box and some ice to the park... very drinkable

A Mes rate. bottle at home.
Clean gold with a good white head and a decent amount of lace. Good Amarillo dominated nose but with some pleasing bready malt underneath, very slight cardboardy notes let it down but only a touch. Excellent flavour. Tastes just like an English cask ale. Really good bitterness, lots of citrus, just all round bright and breezy. Possibly just a little too much carbonation for this style of beer but the palate still seems to sit just right. Excellent lingering bitter finish. That’s all there is to comment on but it’s just bloody lovely. Could drink lots of this. Way to go Mikkeller.
