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 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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
On tap. Pours a hazy golden with an off-white head. Lovely dry Sorachi Ace aroma - although I could take even more of that! Fairly light body, very, very dry almost bordering astringent. The alphas in the SA really come out in the finish. The dryness makes this very drinkable, but - as usual - Id personally prefer it a little sweeter. 110512

2012-05-06, draught at Fairbar, rhus, 7-4-7-3-13=34
Cloudy golden color with creamy head. The aroma is quite mild. The flavor is very dry, weak body, with a sopay lemony malt flavor. Strong bitterness, a bit too much of it in the end.
Unexciting, they can do better (fresher and fruitier) things with Sorachi Ace.

2012-04-29, draught at Fairbar, rhus, 7-4-7-3-13=34
Cloudy golden color; creamy head. Mild aroma of Sorachi Ace, less deep and pungent than in many other beers; it has also a cookie, biscuity touch. Dry but soft mouthfeel, medium-weak body; some malt flavor with a toffee trace; lemony hops with a light vanilla-cake touch; but also, unfortunately, too much bitterness.
A dirty, unbalanced Sorachi Ace beer.
Not bad, but unelegant.
