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

Creamy aftertaste and neat citrus through the taste. Very mellow and balanced.

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!

330 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 4.6%. Sampled some months after BB date. Hazy amber to brown colour, moderate off-white head. Nice aroma of malts and lemongrass, a hint of herbs and dill. The flavour is well hopped, with distinct notes of dill and lemongrass, some malts in the background. Very tasty, would buy again.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of strawberry jam, nectarines and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter.

Svesse (8692) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2012
(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 18 May 2012) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, apricots, grass and floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, grass, caramel, a touch of dill and fresh floral hops in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty, refreshing and nice.
