When I glanced at the description, I read it first as "Cascade, chinook, citra, cucumbers"... Anyways... pours hazy orange-yellow, very thin white head. Aromas of fruit salad sweets and brie. Strange mix. Taste is fruity enough, and the caramel sweetness does well against the hops. Warming alcohol at the end. Pretty much flat, carbonation-wise. Just dunno about this one. Normally a solid brewery, this one seems a bit of a misstep. It’s not awful, by any means, I just expect Kernel to bang out flawless beers as a matter of course... No one’s perfect, I guess.

Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma or pine, resin, cheesey, papapya. Taste of pine, resin, guava, papaya, melon. Oily, low carb amd bitter finish. It’s alright, alcohol well masked but could do with some kind of citrus kick in there.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
330mL thanks to Leighton! Pours chill haze deeper golden, no foam unfortunately. Seems like it didn’t recarbonate in the bottle...just white bubbles :/ Nose is vanilla cake, apple, some pretty fresh citrus zest and peel. Taste is actually pretty nice- big vanilla, sharp citrus peel. Dense finish with some nut oiliness. Overall, pretty good. Wish it had carbonation.

Niall73 (1722) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle from Market Row Wines, Brixton. Bottled 31/10/14. Poured a very lifeless hazy brown. Aroma is rich, sweet with toffee and caramel. Medium body, sticky, a hint of carbonation, though almost flat (dodgy bottle?) . Some rye bread, caramel, booze, orange, grapefruit. OK - not sure if the lack of life was down to a random dodgy bottle or not. Anyway, still pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (6710) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 31/10/13. BB 28/02/14. From alesbymail.com.
The colour is cloudy light brownish amber with a small off-white head. Pine, resin and citrus in hops, bread and grain in malt and mild alcohol (not a bad thing) in the aroma. The flavour is... yikes... it’s very sweet, bitter and strong. The alcohol is very much present. Very low carbonation. Some bun dough in the aftertaste. Not very tasty mostly because of the over sweetness and alcohol.
