Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. This hop combination really worked for me, fresh, tangy with orange and grapefruit flavours. Bitter with a grassy edge, lasting on the palate. A pure delight of a beer.

Great brewer with two of my favourite hops. Wow that’s fruity - orange, lemon, grapefruit and exotic fruits. Medium body, fairly thick and not too carbonated.

Bottled on April 13 2014. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice off-white head. The smell is huge citrus, a touch of spice, yeast and tropical fruit! The taste is sweeter and maltier than the nose but still with prominent hops...citrus some tropical fruit ending crust and a bit dry. The body is medium and silky with fine carbonation. Overall pretty nice as are all of the Kernel beers that I’ve had but not at the top of the list.
