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.

TBone (13239) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle 500ml (AbM, BB 09/2014)
Clear golden-amber color, small off-white head, some lace. Nettles, gooseberry notes characteric to Sorachi Ace but a bit toned down - maybe better when really fresh bottle. Light bodied but ok palate for this ABV, Citrus and gooseberry in the flavor, light notes of strawberry. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent bitter for being only 3.8% but probably could be even better from cask.

rosenbergh (7642) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
500 ml bottle. 1486. BB 10/09/14. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Clear amber colour with a medium-sized foamy off-white head. The aroma is some candies, some milk products, mild hops and toothpaste. The flavour is herbs, toothpaste, some grapefruity bitterness and some citrus notes. I donít quite dig this. Itís drinkable but not that enjoyable. Sometimes Sorachi Ace is a tricky one for me. Quite strong hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.
