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

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2010
Draught at Akkurat. It poured a clear golden liquid with a small white head. Smell of hops, grass, pinecones, flowers and freshly cut grass. Taste was similar, very fresh and plenty of hops. the mouthfeel was medium smooth with a medium thick body and medium amount of carbonation. Decent mouthfeel overall. Nice summer beer that packs enough hops to work in the hot wheater. Probably great with BBQ food. It smelled better then it tasted though.

TEJA (1372) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2011
Draught at Akkurat. Light beige lasting head. Solid yellow color. Big citrus aroma from the american hops. The taste has a nice maltinesswith some chrystal malts, some bitterness that gets a little harsh in the end. The taste also has some hop taste that blends well with a nice spakling. Medium amounts of everything you wish for in a summer ale.

Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Total fruity aroma hop attack! Bold, and definitely not subtle. Slightly stodgy mashy body, I did wish for something crisper. Sweet, but with lots of fruity and floral specdts from the hops. Finish a little bitter, but otherwise quite brief and unispiring. Almost a little watery, which for a 6.8% beer is quite a compliment. A surprising summer ale, but a pleasant surprise.
