The_Osprey (4887) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Cask at The Railway, Richmond. Dark orange, still, slight haze, small bubbly white head. Aroma is airy, light, touch of astringent apple peel. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is buttery, mint, coconut, touch woody and medicinal, watery finish. Not bitter enough for me so comes across a bit wishy washy, but has an interesting Sorachi flavour.

jmgreenuk (6495) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 9, 2015

leebotton (382) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Slightly peppery sorachi aroma with soft fruit, lime and soft lemon. Slight towely smell. Flavour is floral, white peppery with citrus lurking around in indefinite measure. Fairly sweet but well balanced - nice and thick. I think these guys must have really upped their game. Well done Jonny

JackMandarin (103) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours light copper. Nice head. Light but very pleasant hop aroma. Green herbal hit from my beloved Sorachi Ace hops. Custard. Fruit Salad sweets. Decent carbonation and a full mouthfeel for the low ABV. Taste is sweet with a fair bit of tang to begin. Tropical citric notes. Bitterness asserts itself and lingers for a nice, long finish. Well-rounded brew.
