COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Den japanske humle Sorachi Ace blev udviklet specielt til Sapporo Bryggerierne i slutningen af firserne. Den har en distinkt citrusagtig smag og aroma og er helt sin egen. Sorachi Aced er brygget på pale ale malt, en smule karamelmalt og havreflager. Massivt humlet selvfølgelig, og kun 4,6 % alk. Humlet forår til jer alle!

English. Sorachi Ace was developed for the Japanese Sapporo Breweries in the late eighties. It has a very citrussy and lemony scent and taste.When used in large quantities it may resemble dill. Truly a unique hop that resembles nothing you’ve had before. Anyways, here you have a pale ale brewed on pale malts, a slight addition of caramel malts and oats for the smoothness. Massively hopped of course.
Hops: Sorachi Ace Malts: Pilsner, Caramel

Plovmand (6311) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a medium off white head. The aroma is spicy and earthy hops with some citrus. The flavour is highly citrussy and grassy with light spicy notes. Grape fruity finish. Some hay in the overall impression.

Golden, hazy appearance. Medium head. The extreme bitterness overwhelms most of the other flavours, which are there but are hard to find.

Hansen (6471) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2012
Looks good, amber, hazy and with a lasting white head. Ok so far. But the rest is pure butter, diacetyl. No reason to write any more than that.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy, medium gold, with a white head. Hoppy, herbal aroma, malt, spruce, grass, eucalyptus, earth, caramel. Dry, light to medium body, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, spicy taste, spruce, grapefruit peel, yeast, eucalyptus, grass, caramel. Body is a bit too thin for the amount of hops, otherwise quite nice. (2012-08-24)

OleR (4787) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
0.33 L bottle from Kihoskh, København. Firm big-bubbled yellow-shaded blond head. Hazy orange colored body. Spiced and perfumey hop nose, notes of lemon. Taste is fresh pale malts, fruity and spicy hops, with some herbal and light astrigent sidenotes. Well-bodied for a 4.6% beer. Smooth mouthfeel. Finishes fairly dry with fruity and spicy bitterness.

Yorker (1098) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly murky amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is spicy, slightly tart, grapefruit, fruity hops. Flavour has the same spicy, tarty, grapefruity notes that dominates the aroma.

NosirIwont (1941) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a big creamy egg shell head. Good lacing. Lightly spicy, grassy citrusy hop aroma. A wee bit tart. Has a weird off-note; somewhat barf-like, but not really. Flavour is also a bit spicy, with an orange peel note and and a grape fruit-like bitterness. Tart. The finish is dry and has the same grape fruit bitterness. Lingering light alcohol burn, which is surprising considering the abv. A bit too much carbonation. Overall okay and well-balanced, but the bitterness feels intrusive; guess I’m not really a Sorachi Ace person. 17.08.12.

Tide (1670) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from super market. Amber color, white head. Strong bitter taste with much citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, sake aromas and grass. Dry bitter finish that lingers surprisingly long. Good brew.
