Soracchi Ace always tastes a little ’flabby’ to me, lacking the cut and zing of some hops, which is fine when you have other things to keep the palate occupied. In this case though the beer, while very drinkable and balanced, does seem rather dull. The elderflower notes dominate, to the detriment of anything else. This isn’t a disaster as such and this is a good session beer with it’s light body and booze content. Would do well at a BBQ on a summer’s day. Otherwise, it’s all a little middle-of-the-road.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is grassy , zesty lemon hint of earthy. Orange in colour with a slight haze and thin white head. Flavour is big on that signature sorachi ace hop cahracter, which i love. Firm piny bitter finish that lingers in the mouth. medium sweet. caramel malt somewhat balances the bitterness. This is a fantastic session beer packs a huge punch for 3.8%er. Great.
