@Akkurat: trevlig fruktig doft med tydlig ananas. Smaken är välhumlad, stor frukt och kolatoner. Fin krämig eftersmak.

In short: A very floral (flower petals) well balanced golden pale ale. Very clean and refreshing.
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.
