COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

Deliciously fruity, hoppy & refreshing, fantastic summer ale.
A real showcase of the fabulous Soracchi Ace hop, Acer has beautiful aromas of citrus, berries and elderflower, with a very fruity palate and a lovely refreshing citrus aftertaste leaving you wanting more.

AshtonMcCobb (5205) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2016
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - stewed apples. Light biscuit at the back. Taste - lemonade, apples and light caramel. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - not as balanced as expected from a brewer of this standard.

cagou007 (1037) - FRANCE - FEB 21, 2016
On cask at Marquis Cornwallis pub, London-- pours clear amber with medium white head. Nose is slightly malty, quite evanescent. Aromas are herbal hops, weed, lemon, pepper notes. Flat carbonation, light body. Medium bitter finish. Not convinced at all by the herbal/weeds aromas, an not bitter enough according to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (12502) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Cask at the Henry Addington. It pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, stinky sorachi, aniseed, herbal, menthol, grassy, sweet lemon candy and a touch of pink marshmallow. The taste is bitter - sweet, biscuit, grassy, herbal, aniserd, some bubblegum, sweet lemon with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well enough made, just too much sorachi for my liking...

Towey1989 (1803) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, slight lime, a little apple, some cream and subtle herbal, grassy hops. Taste of lemon, lime, dill, some red berries, slight coconut, a little apple, a hint of vanilla and subtle herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, vanillry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. The amount of sorachi ace hop characteristics in this beer surprised me. Lemony, coconuty and herbal. At 3.8, very sessionable too. Decent but not amazing.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016

The_Osprey (6246) - 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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, grassy citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, big lemon citrus, light spicy hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
