S:t Eriks Sommar Ale är det första ekologiska ölet i S:t Eriks framgångsrika serie av mikrobryggda öl. Årets sommaröl är bryggt på Slottskällan i Uppsala av 100 procent ekoklassificerade råvaror, inklusive humle av sorten First Gold. Det är en dvärghumle med en fin, attraktiv, engelsk East Kent Golding karaktär som ger en apelsinaktig doft och arom. S:t Eriks Sommar Ale har en lite lättare i kropp och karaktär i jämförelse med Jessica Heidrich tidigare öl, men hennes förkärlek till humle går ändå inte att ta miste på. Det gör S:t Eriks Sommar Ale till en perfekt måltidsdryck en somrig lunch eller picknick med exempelvis inkokt lax, grillade kycklingklubbor, wraps eller spenatpaj med fetaost. Ölet är vackert bärnstensfärgat med en humlearomatisk, nyanserad doft med inslag av apelsin. Smaken är elegant balanserad med aromatiska toner av gräs, knäckebröd, fruktkaka och avslutande beska med inslag av Sevilla-apelsin.

Marko (4180) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 3, 2011
At a Bishops Arms in Stockholm, as Sommaröl. Golden body with a lasting white head. Sweet orangey malty nose, some honey. Light dusty honeyish taste, with some hop bitterness that would be nice for a pils. Very light fishy notes though. Not too bad but I shouldn’t have paid 75SEK for this . Damn.
