Cloudy golden. Fine white head. Fresh, fruity, slight bubblegum, lots of dill. Dill flavor, yeasty. Light body. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light, clean and easy drinking as a Kolsch should be. Has that lemon verbena aroma that Sorachi has. Finished slightly bitter though.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a hazy golden colour with less than 5mm of white bubbles for a head. These bubbles disappeared in an instant. There was no lacing. Carbonation was medium and very coarse and the beer went flat very quickly. Aroma of sour fruit. Taste initially with mild sweetness but then it went unpleasantly bitter and with a very tart after taste. Light body. Smooth mouthfeel but with a tangy bitterness on the finish. Terrible.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden pour. Slight floral and citrus aromas. Taste packs a punch of bitter lemon and a slight burnt flavour. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Very distinct sorachi, but something is a little offensive on the palate that detracts slightly from the pleasant flavours

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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
