In short: A very floral (flower petals) well balanced golden pale ale. Very clean and refreshing.stefannilssons (1582) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 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.
Det här var en trevlig svensk sommaröl, med en välavvägd kropp och en behaglig men stabil beska. Smaken bar på lätt fruktiga toner och kanske även lite brödiga, ack så svårt att precisera denna. Beskan var, i vilket fall, angenäm och kroppen likaså. aleksander9 (1898) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2013

Poured from bottle, clear deep gold with medium off white head. Aroma with fruity notes, traces of caramel and bread then mostly citrus. Taste is low key bitterness backed up by a very well blanced malt body leading to a nice bitter finish. More fruity and citrusy notes. Very nice summer beer! mjs (7685) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2012

Flavours were hops, pine, toffee, malts, mildly sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. A tasty APA lacking some edges. Vignale (4011) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad, klar vätska, lågt skum. Lätt doft av kådig humle, tallskott, grape och mango. Grape, resinolja, tall, gräs, färsk humle, rejäl beska. Munkänslan är blöt, smakerna rena men en liten metallsmak kommer fram i eftersmaken. Mer besk än fruktig. En av de bättre och framförallt beskare svenska APA jag druckit.
