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 p pale ale malt, en smule karamelmalt og havreflager. Massivt humlet selvflgelig, og kun 4,6 % alk. Humlet forr 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 youve 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 (8095) - 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 (8543) - 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 (2428) - 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)

0.33 L bottle from Kihoskh, Kbenhavn. 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.
