Pours hazy copper color with a large white head. Aroma of grassy hops, mild floral notes, goose berry bush and subtle pale malts.

Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, tea, tropical fruit, crisp malt and a generous grassy bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Light body, quite dry. Refreshing, tasty and highly drinkable.

Appearance: Clear copper body with a medium white head. No visible carbonation. Great lacing.
Taste: Red apple, lightly roasted malt and caramel.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: A light, tasty Bitter with a good body for such a low ABV.
Soracchi Ace always tastes a little ’flabby’ to me, lacking the cut and zing of some hops, which is fine when you have other things to keep the palate occupied. In this case though the beer, while very drinkable and balanced, does seem rather dull. The elderflower notes dominate, to the detriment of anything else. This isn’t a disaster as such and this is a good session beer with it’s light body and booze content. Would do well at a BBQ on a summer’s day. Otherwise, it’s all a little middle-of-the-road.

That works for me. I quite like Sorachi ace. Soracchi. Chi. My chi. do you hwave chi? Does everyone have chi? Chicken? What is yours. I’d like chickens. Eggs. I like eggs. Current favourite is soft boiled. Why do I bother? lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2013
