3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Euston Tap, 26th May 2011. Orange amber with a bit of foam. Dry, quite woody, a bit bitter. Grapefruit, salt and a bit of grass on the nose. By Kernel standards, this is pedestrian. Peppery hop at the finish, sticks on the back of the throat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Merchants (I’m pretty sure I had this at the brewery also). It pours light hazy amber, with a decent white head. The nose is grapefruit, orange, mango and some urine. The taste is juicy orange citrus fruit, orange sherbet, grass and earth, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Another solid Kernel offering, but a bit off their best.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle@Craft Beer co, London. Poured a vivid and enticing golden colour with a steady medium sized white head. Citrus, tropical fruit and hops stood out in a very appealing nose. Flavour was the bomb, grassy resin sodden hop and sweet malts aplenty, all exceedingly well balanced. Winning bitterness level. An all round stonker. You could say I dug it.

Bottled. Thanks to chriso.
Golden colour with medium-sized head. Sweet malty with tropical fruits in aroma. Flavourwise there is vanilla, tropical fruits, swedensnus. Early bitterness. Medium sweet. The brits need to be braver when brewing US-style beers - throw in some more hops!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours a glowing, rich gold with a lingering, foamy white head. Huge cat pee nose, some grass and citric notes. Wow, amazing flavor, tons of fine grass, more cat urine, and good sweetness to hold it all up. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Bit more malt comes through at the end, plenty of resiny hops, some pine and citrus rind. Yet more piss! Outstanding.

Thanks Craig for sharing this bottle. Light golden ale with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, melon, passionfruit and resinous hops. Tastes fruity with passionfruit and pineapple notes and a little honey. Quite dry and bitter. Lovely oily mouthfeel.
