Lilja (1782) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2013
Smakar nu Summer Sun för andra gången och inse att den har potential. Många smakar som dock inte kommer fram tillräckligt klart, men en god sommar svalkare, hade förväntat mig mer av denna skotte.

Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Aroma is very hoppy on the grassy side, malty and good bitterness, some almond notes, pleasant.

Sparf (137) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2011
2010-10-10 Weak, fresh aroma. Flowery and grass. A bit sweet-tart taste with some fruitiness and too little of bitterness. Light body. Decent for thirst-quenching, but nothing more I’d say.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle. From notes. Golden with a white head. Caramel, fruit, citrus, grass, low bitterness. Nice and refreshing, but quite simple. Good to be able to bring a lower ABV beer to a barbecue though.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2011
(Bottle) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, bread, citrus and grassy, floral hops. Fruity, malty taste with notes of apricots, bread, citrus, a touch of honey and generous amounts of fresh, grassy hops in the finish. Medium body, with a crisp malt character, fairly dry. Tasty, refreshing and highly drinkable. Quite nice.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Clear golden with a very good white head. Good beer, despite its low alcohol has still lots of flavor.
