6.9% ABV "IPA Chinook Citra" from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a cloudy golden beer with a sharp citrus, tropical fruit and orange flavour followed by an earthy, peppery hop and a warming orange blossom finish. Another great Kernel beer. Bottle Conditioned.

Hazy pale golden pour. The aroma is very fresh and bright. Tropical and citrusy with a lot of fresh juiciness and a bit of clean bitterness. Really delicious.

</br> Clear pale orange beer, no head, glass filled to the rim. Oh, England... Aroma: fruity, citrus, little cheesy, smelly feet, melons, malty. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus start, nice bitterness, bit cheesy, piny touch. Aftertaste: hay, grains, citrus, pretty bitter, dry, lemon peel, bit medicinal, not the best Kernel I’ve ever had. Which is weird, ’cause I’m a citra fan.

minutemat (1986) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
330ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with foamy white head. Aroma is tropical. Taste has that strange smooth creamy character I’ve noticed with Kernel beers recently. Chinook and Citra are both present but its a murky muddy mouthfeel with muted grapefruit notes. Still, a lovely beer nonetheless.
