Keg at Craft Islington. Light blond yellow colour, lightly cloudy, not much head. Aroma is lemon and pineapple. Quite powerful. Taste is nice enough, very fruity, got that undiluted squash taste, lots of citrus. Thick in the mouth, low carbonation. Alright, but not so exciting for me.

Bottle at the brewery- 4th Jan 2014. Looks the part. Smells great. Could have been another killer DIPA from Kernel if it was properly carbonated. Pretty disappointing in terms of their track record.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Went into this with a little trepidation, but shouldn’t have worried. Flattish, yes, but still a pleasantly light body. Flavour is fruity and sweet, with sticky malts. Alcohol burn after gulping. Not the best Kernel, but still enjoyed this.

Bottle from the brewery. Like what others have said, this is a bit lifeless. Pretty much flat in regards to carbonation. It has good flavours and notes to it, the body just really lets it down. Seems like poor conditioning. That said, it is by no means a poor beer, just not at the usual Kernel standards

I had high hopes for this beer as the 7.1% 4C was amazing. This was lifeless, no head, murky and didn’t have what id say is a professional finish? Nice hop flavour and a good malt back ground, just the finish and detail didn’t seem up to the normal standard.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with no head. Aroma is toffee, alcohol, pine and pineapple. Taste is bitter pine to start with sticky toffee and mango on the finish. A bit flat. Rare fail from the Kernel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - fuzzy gold pour with very thin head. Citrus hops, sweet caramel malts, some pine, very low to no carbonation. Not bad.
