3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pours bright orange with a nice whote head. Smells... hops! Citrus with hints of herbs. Tastes... nothing new, just as it smells only with sweetness and bitterness added into it. Nice ale.
