2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dense, compact and very persistent foam helps to not many flavors unleash from this pale ale. Only slightly citrus rises. The taste is light caramel and soon comes the Japanese hops on the palate with good citrus and light flower. I think it’s nice when brewmaster choose to brew with only one type of hop. It opens for the possibility that I may not so strong in all types of hops, can better learn to relate to the differences found in every type of hop. Sorachi Ace is perhaps a little too citrusy to me, but is certainly excellent for combining with other a little more spicy hops. All in all, a lovely tasteful pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s a hazy, golden beer topped by an off-white, finger-thick head. Bubble gum, some lemon, oxidation and malts in the aroma. Lightly meaty. The flavor has as the aroma quite a lot of Sorachi Ace bubble gum, with malts and some lemon. Rather thin on the palate, with a nice bitterness in the flavor. A very boring one, but not bad in any way. 121005

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge foamy white head which stays pleasantly long. Aroma of citrus like hops. Very bitter hops. A bit too stinging for my taste, I prefer fuller taste. For this ABV beer it has very strong taste and hops. Fuller body would serve this beer well, just like any other beer at this alcohol %.
