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. VastActiv (7131) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013

: Much softer, orangy hoppier than before. Chewy toffee, drying finish
Copper colour. Some bisquity caramels, light herbal/earthy hops, pines on nose. Medium bodied, bitter, robust. Pretty flavourful, good tasting, but a bit hard hopped. Long piny finish.
In short: A very floral (flower petals) well balanced golden pale ale. Very clean and refreshing.Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2013
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.
On tap. Golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity with lots of grapefruit, malt citrus and caramel. Taste is also fruity, malt, caramel with high hop flavor and fairly low bitterness. Finish is malty and fruity hops. _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2012
