3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at Cookie, Melbourne, Victoria. Hazy golden, mid sized head.Cocoa aroma. Mid sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Cocoa, lemon yoghurt and vanilla. Mid bitter finish, A good beer, but it shares little similarities to anything I would describe as a kölsch.

On tap at The Scratch. Pale hazy yellow colour with straw like aroma. Clean in the mouth and on the palate. Good beer without being great.

Nose is a touh piney, otherwise, not much. Appearance is straw coloured with white head. Taste is piney, citrus, a touch of a fruity yougurt taste from the fruit and creamy notes that work well together. I also get a bit of corriander and apple - the sorachi hops play well into this beer. Palate is bitter but kind, quite pleasant.

Looks like a lager, champagne colour, hazy with a thick frothy white head. Little aroma to speak of (due to the head), but has some fruity touches. Sweet and fruity, almost like a wine. Has an almost - I kid you not - massaman curry flavour, don’t know why I think that. It’s ok.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy yellow with a small white cap, leaving nice lacing. Nose is very tangy and full of lemon zest. Gives me the feel of sucking on a lemon before I’ve even tasted it, something I’m not too keen on but I can see the appeal. Loads of lemon and citrus zest notes in the taste. Very clean cut lemon in this one. A little one dimensional but ok for a quaffer I suppose, not my kind of thing though

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows spicy and herbal hops along with faint lemon custard and soft clean malt.
Similar flavours, pretty much the same characters as mentioned above followed by a mild bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little excessive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Cloudy yellow with a modest white head. Aroma of lemon Eno, some herbs. Characteristic Mornington pleasantly restrained carbonation. Barely sweet with a crisp finish. Lemony and herbal. Dominated by Sorachi Ace and not for me.

Draughts the Local Taphouse (St Kilda). I still find myself bemused by this hop. Herbaceous, peppery, lemony. A savory bitternes.

(Local Taphouse Syd $6.10 310ml). Absolute cracker of a beer. Light bodied as one would expect and a wonderfully expressive chunk of pepper and crushed slate. Dry finish with some trailing aniseed. Awesome dry beer for summer and would make a great crossover to craft for the masses.
