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.

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.

Cask. Pours golden amber with a floral citrus aroma. Light sweetness gives way to medium bitterness. Light body accentuates the hop flavor. Nice long bitter finish. Overall an excellent low-alcohol beer, probably my favorite in the sub-4% range.

Like the refreshing pacific hop flavors but bit too much diacytel for me and columbus bittering hops do not really accentuate the flavor hop that I enjoy. Easy drinker and refreshing beer though. Lawnmower beer for me if this was sent to the States!

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - clear golden amber, thin off-white head, minimal flowery hop aroma, oily resin-like malt with a medium citrus finish, slightly over hopped

Cask at Euston Tap with Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma is mainly earthy grains with a hint of biscuit and grassy hops. Flavor begins with smooth grain with a light grassy hop backing that grows.

Cask at Euston Tap. The Sorachi Ace is apparent from the get-go: this makes it a coconutty taste, twist milky sweet and nutty. Light, fragrant, easy to drink. Itís a great drop. And oh! I get it - Acer because its Sorachi innit.

TheCametron (2116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at The Blue Blaze. A textbook bitter. Grapefruit, grass and lemon zest to the hops. A nice degree of malty sweetness. A nip of bubblegum but maybe that was the hops too. Bitter finish. Quite full bodied for such a low ABV.

Euston Tap, lemony, sorachi ace notes, copper orange pour, Little else past the sorachi notes. Lemon-lime citrusy. OK

Cask conditioned at The Holborn Whippet, Holborn, London. Gold with slight head. This was really bland and watery for some reason, thin, malty, didnít get the hop. Nothing special.
