Tap (Pikkulintu, HelsinkI)
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.

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

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
