COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2011
Bottled. Clear bright golden, minimal head. Peachy aroma with lagerlike fruitiness behind. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel and fairly light body. Tinny, fruity and sharp. Too lightly hopped to cover the shortcomings in the malt department. Notes of fat and vegetables. Slight salty finish. Like an industrial lager with some polish on top.
