chimpgibbon (329) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle at Hawksmoor Spitalfields. What can you say? Possibly one of the best Kernel pales yet. Funky as hell and I’ll stick my neck out and say cheesy as hell even if Evin doesn’t get that analogy. Top banana.

Keg at the brewery - Bermondsey, London. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, foamy white head. Super solid IPA, lots of dank citrus, pee, sticky pine. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sticky, resinous on the finish with lots of juicy citrus. Lovely.

Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Keg at Lyric Soho. It pours hazy pale golden with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, hay, orange, grapefruit and sherbet. The taste is crisp, orange rind, tangerine, sherbet, minerals, leaf, light grass and earthy bitterness with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tasty, well-balanced and highly drinkable. Great stuff!

hazy deep amber beer with a good off white head. Light passion fruit on the nose. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth light malt base. Hops appear to be Mosaic dominated with passion fruit coming through strong. Lesser orange and orange peel. Little hop spice. Crisp finish with a minty aftertaste. Very nice!
