fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Boundary Crossing, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color with small head. The aroma of Sorachi Ace is very light. Light and dry mouthfeel, light but refreshing malt flavor, with mild, delicate Sorachi Ace; ordinary bitterness.
Undaring beer, but granted that it’s balanced and very pleasant to drink.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Slightly hazy straw colour. Aroma is a bit yeasty and husky. A bit husky, kind of a funny definitely a real brightness to the hops, mouldy mushrooms. Moderate bitterness. Strange beer, really not getting the Sorachi at all.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
In a word, horrid. On tap at Bar Volo. Odd hoppy flavour. Not drinkable, although looks and smells fine.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
2013-10-23. Golden yellow body with a modest white head. Aroma of floral hops and mild malt. Light grassy touches. Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, very floral hop character, mild malt. Very smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just okay. On tap at Volo, Toronto

mcberko (6443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
650mL bottle, pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Nose is full of fresh cereals, grassy hops and a bit of bready malts. Flavour brings out loads of cereals upfront, followed by grassy hops, and bready malts. Very dry, and dominated by the cereal. Highly drinkable and thirst-quenching. Great pils.

CapFlu (4521) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at the brewery for around $6. Pours a medium white frothy head atop a light golden, highly-carbonated body. Nose is mildly lactic and grassy. Stronger malt then I’d expect from a pilsner, lacking the crispness I’d have expected. Okay.

Ferris (4183) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle - Grass and white grape. Pale fizzy yellow. White grape, pear and a bit of astringent finish. A flavourful pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (4007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Not a bad pilsener. Not quite sure the sorachi does much for it though. Pours golden without head or lacing. Some crisp malt and a little candy. Finishes with light sweetness. Average carbonation. Tap at volos.

Crit (3350) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Gold,lasting white head.Light salty/spicy nose.Crisp palate,light malt in back. Pleasant spicy hop finish. This brewery makes some very questionable offerings, but this is one of their better beers.

Gerbeer (1780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aroma of cereal and corn - not very impressive. Flavors of cereal, toasted rice, and resin. Light bitter finish. Interesting taste - goes great with potato chips.
