Hazy dark amber beer. Ghostly white head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Some fine carbonation gives a pleasing bite. Nice malt base with a whisper of toffee-caramel, some cream as well. Fresh piney hops with bitter orange marmalade underneath. Finishes crisp and semi dry. Nice - could well imagine sinking a few of these on a warm evening! Lingering bitter aftertaste.

500ml bottle (best before 20 November 2011) @ Christmas tasting on 28 December 2010. Yep, it’s amber. I didn’t find this as enjoyable as most of the other Kernel beers I’ve tried. Sure the citrus is there but it didn’t seem as hop driven as I’ve come to expect from Kernel. And I think it’s that hugely hop forward character that generates much of the appeal for me. The slightly darker malt, caramel-tinged accent and a bit of fruity sweetness didn’t really float my boat. Still a relatively tasty and well balanced beer though.

Bottle; picked up @ brewery - thanks Evin! Consumed @ Chris O’s pre-NY tastings. Lovely us hoppage aroma; oranges, marmalade, citrus. Taste is oranges, cream, oil, marmalade and citrus. Very oily and fruity in the finish. Stunning hopy aroma. Taste lets it down a tad but will have this again no doubt on a fresher palate.

500ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy deep amber red colour with lasting thin off white head. Lovely centennial aroma. Slightly sweeter and fuller than the pale ale version. Some bitterness on the finish. Tasty sweetish sherberty hoppy amber ale. Even a bit nutty on the malts. Good.
