3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity hop aroma has a gooseberry note, some lime, a wet strawy touch. Taste is dry hoppy, minimally tart, a fruity note of gooseberry, some lime, lemon zest; bitter finish. Nothing special.

Bottle @home, pours v.hazy, a nice white creamy head. Hoppy on the nose and palate at first i found it a little too dry but it and i warmed to each other and found it quite a pleasure to know each other for 30 odd minutes.

Hazy burnished gold with white head collapsing to a lacing. tart gooseberries and zesty sherbet on the nose, with tonnesote gooseberry in flavour. Touch of lemongrass too perhaps.drying pith and bitterness balanced by some shortcake malt and long lime pith finish. Perfect carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable stuff.

17th November 2012
Hazy gold beer, little white bubbly head. Palate is light and dry and smooth. Lovely hops - lemon and lime, well balanced with floral flavours and a little earth. Neutral malt base really shows off the NZ hops. Semi dry finish. Savoured every mouthful of this great NZ hop showcase.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravity @ Wandsworth Common BF 2013. The pourís very sweet grain, some canned pear syrup, apple. The taste is very sweet. Quite sticky. Some honeyed grass and a bit of piss. The syrupy sugary flavors in this are just too overbearing to discern any subtlety in the beer. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, maybe this wasnít on good form. Not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Purchased this from íJacksí Westholme Stores Londis shop, Goring-on-Thames 28.06.13 consumed outside Frank (camper) at Holycombe campsite, Whichford, nr Shipston-on Stour the same day. Pours hazy gold with white head. Fruity nose, little bit of bile on aroma. Quite soft in mouth, initially I wasnít a fan of this, too sweet, lacks a real bite and bitterness, however it grows and there is a little dryness. I wish it could have been half as good as the Kernel Iíve just had but sadly it lingers some way back. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Golden with an off white foam. Aromas are mango and grapefruit with white grape juice and woody notes. Floral with lemon, yeast and base biscuit and grain. Flavours are dry and woody with bitter lemon and a pithy, peppery palate. Some biscuit with low pine and warming alcohol. Decent. .
