wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle from Mr Lawrence, Brockley. Hazy orange pour with a lingering white head. Fabulous tropical fruit bowl aroma that’s up there with the very best. Piney resinous hop, weed, citrus aplenty, a little sweetness. A little sniff of heaven if there ever was one. The flavour lived up to the infinite promise shown in the nose. More juicy citrus mingled with some balancing malts and superb hoppage. Bitterness spot on and drinkibality just off the scale. Refreshing and hugely satisfying. Quite simply this beer is the bomb, and my favourite offering thus far from the Kernel. World-beating stuff.

0,33L bottle, ABV 6,9%. Pours hazy golden-amber with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is intense citrus, malt, biscuit notes. Flavor is sweet, citrus, malt, biscuits. Finish is grapefruit bitter. Overall: great ipa, very nicely balanced.

Botella de 33 cl de zombier en el momento el 02-08-2014. ipa con gran sabor afrutado inicial y buen amargo final no muy persistente. Cuerpo medio, fácil de beber y refrescante. Bastante buena, para repetir de nuevo sin duda.

Intense citrus nose, dry hoppy taste with lasting citrus tang on the tongue. Zesty but mellow bitter finish.

Nice, very citrus and a bit sour, but overall really good beer. I founded better on bottle than on tap, but could be just my perception...

Nocturne (760) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Keg at The Beagle, Chorlton. 7.1%. Hazy pale golden shade with a snowy white cap. Rings of lace soon form. It’s like sipping on a cocktail of tropical flavours. Grapefruit and mango swimming through light caramel malt. Obviously bitter but surprisingly delicate on the palate. Nice to see something subtle that doesn’t want to beat you over the head. Dangerously drinkable on a summer afternoon.

Draught at CBC 2014. Hazy orange liquid with a small white head. Aroma of tangerine, mango, citrus, pine and bread. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of tangerine, citrus and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice.
