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

Clear pale peach, tiny keggy head. Weird sweet Sorachi Ace coconut milk aroma. Like many of the others using this hop. Taste has even more of it. Creamy, some orange and zest. There is a touch of gone off vegetables according to Jarkko. Another sorachi ace beer aimed at magnifying the weirdness of the hop, and not bringing out its best, tasty features. Not a disaster by any means, but if you want the merits of the hop, grab Stadin Panimo’s instead.

BeerBaboon (1533) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2012
Dark golden and hazy. White head. Aroma of citrus, malt and soap (which is a bit of a turn off). Flavour is bitter, a bit soapy and wooden. Soapyness is a bit of a weakness.

rosenbergh (6585) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pannuhuone, Kuopio, Finland. Slightly cloudy amber golden colour with small white head. Caramel and candy sweetness, biscuity malt and sweet fruity hops in aroma. Flavour is fruity and piney hops, candies, biscuity malt and moderate bitterness. Bitterness stays. Not the tastiest Sorachi Ace Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1573) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 A cloudy, dark yellow beer with a quite weak and blond head. Biscuity malts dominates the aroma, also some aromatic citrusfruits, caramell, overally aroma is too mild. Taste is dry and malty, some toffee, nice and dry wooden and sour lemon hoppyness, but it is slightly stale. Medium- bodied, wooden and boring beer, this beer isn’t totally convinced, unique.

vesavee (6) - FINLAND - JUN 14, 2012 does not count
Nice and murky, quite pale with a white-ish head. Smells gay. Tastes like joy leading to a bitter end. At first it seems 0,5 litres is a bit much due to heavy bitterness. However, once the beer warms up a bit (drank it straight out the fridge), the bitterness smooths out a little and gives way to bubblegum and strawberry notes of Sorachi Ace. More please!

50cl bottle, bbe 26.03.2013. Poured hazy golden with a lacing, dirty white head. Dill and lemon in aroma. Flavor is exactly the same, dill, lemon and also more malty tones, dill also in the bitter finish. Weak body. Watery.

(Tap 24/04-2012) Low white head, unclear yellow color, slim body, good bitterness, not very balanced body vs bitterness, hoppy aroma. Brewdogs SA is way better.

Bottled@Beer Hunters, Pori. Orangeish red colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, grassy, wooden and also has some herbal notes. Flavour is floral, grassy and mildly grainy notes. Actually a quite pleasant Sorachi Ace beer for once.
