COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stenstrand SommarAle har fått sitt namn av Stenstrand som ligger i det vackra naturreservatet Ören på Torö. Stranden är känd som en av de bästa vågsurfing-stränderna i Sverige. Denna ale bryggs med golvmältad malt från det anrika mälteriet Thomas Fawcett och humlas med tre amerikanska humlesorter. Till sist filtreras ölet genom vår humlekanon, fulladdad med humlekottar för att ge det extra mycket sommar. Som alla våra öl är den opastöriserad - och bryggd med omsorg och kärlek

@Akkurat: trevlig fruktig doft med tydlig ananas. Smaken är välhumlad, stor frukt och kolatoner. Fin krämig eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: A very floral (flower petals) well balanced golden pale ale. Very clean and refreshing.
How: Tap at Black & Brown, Stockholm.
The look: Clear light golden body topped by a persistent small beige head leaving lots of lacigns on the glass.
In long: Nose is very floral hops, this is flowery to the point of being borderline girly, but a sensitive man like me can appreciate a flower bouquet when it comes from a beer. Taste starts with typical clean honeyed cereals with a touch of caramel, a mild sweetness sensation, then the floral hops bring a nice refreshing flowery bitterness of medium intensity with light resinous undertones. Don’t need to speak much Swedish to understand that “Sommar Ale” translates to “Summer Ale” and in that regards it is a success, I had it on a very sunny hot day sitting on a Stockholm pub patio and it was indeed a nice summer ale. Another good Swedish beer I had on tap on location, but Sweden is a very strange country, the public bathrooms are on the sidewalks, the toilet paper is like a book, people can see you doing your thing because the walls are see-through windows and also there is a phone.

Draught @ Gastropub Nordic
Aroma is hoppy with fruits, some grainy notes, resin and pine needles. Flavour has resin, malty notes, some exotic fruits and caramel. A bit too sweet and stuffy. Also some yeasty notes occur after some sips. Could be an IPA as well.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013
Det här var en trevlig svensk sommaröl, med en välavvägd kropp och en behaglig men stabil beska. Smaken bar på lätt fruktiga toner och kanske även lite brödiga, ack så svårt att precisera denna. Beskan var, i vilket fall, angenäm och kroppen likaså.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad, klar vätska, lågt skum. Lätt doft av kådig humle, tallskott, grape och mango. Grape, resinolja, tall, gräs, färsk humle, rejäl beska. Munkänslan är blöt, smakerna rena men en liten metallsmak kommer fram i eftersmaken. Mer besk än fruktig. En av de bättre och framförallt beskare svenska APA jag druckit.
