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

Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - APR 1, 2012
Draft at DØE meeting: Almost no head, nose is spicy with fresh green "broken flowers", unripe peppers. Medium body and a little short.Taste is somewhat thin and to astringent. Tastes like a pilsner with to much hops lacking backbone. Fine nose though.

Medium body, soft carbonation strange bitter finish. To much dild taste from the hops for my liking. 310312

UPDATED: APR 7, 2012 At DØE Fynsk Ølsmagning. Golden with a big white head. Distinct Sorachi Ace aroma, of grapefruit, dill and sage - love it or hate it. Flavour is clean hoppy, but with a somewhat unpleasant, rough bitterness
