Must keep my eye on beer rotation. Bottle from the brewery thatís been in my cupboard too long. Colour is excellent clear orange, touch of cloudiness, although a lot of yeast and hence the enormous head. I spoke to an American brewer at GBBF and they criticised the yeast levels in Kernel beers. One thing for sure is that they age badly (stouts included). The nose on this is damp, horse blanket, oxidisation, orange marmalade. All the tropical fruit is gone. Nose is damp, slightly sour, not much sweetness. But a lot of caramel. Itís almost like a double IPA now. Oh dear. Must drink within 6 months!

Bottle 330ml.

Unclear matt medium orange colour with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, pine notes. Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120122]

CraftBeerNick (893) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle at home, 5th April 2012. Poured to form a huge head, which I do not like. Great fruity hop perfume aroma, palate is fine, the look is murky and not that attractive. Taste is lovely, quite sweet and rich, and numbing on the tongue, could do with more of a bittering balance for my taste. Good IPA though

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of anders37. Pours a cloudy opaque - murky - golden with a white head. Rather interesting exotic hop blend in the nose. Medium body, lots of fruit and a delicious tropical melange from the hops leaving a distinct bitterness kick. Nice one. 030312

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle from the Euston Tap. Pours cloudy, muddy gold. Thick white head and lovely aroma of fruit and wet soil. Taste is a little more restrained than I expected, but is still as enjoyable as Iíve come to inspect. Notes include: lime fruit pastille, and some of that organic blackcurrant dilute that used to be available at Cranks in Dartington. Very pleasant, whilst being quite thick and muddy.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
33cl bottle bought at the brewery and drunk at home. Hazy cloudy browny orange colour lasting near white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Some tropical fruit in the mouth. Some lovely sweet fruits in here as well. I mean really tasty and the fruit is lovely. Some good bitterness on the finish. A little earthy, Good fruit though.

Bottle from íJacksí Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon 07.02.12 consumed at home 09.02.12 Pours hazy gold with white head, I poured mine first, Lozís second so Loz had a very, very hazy muddy looking effort (chuckle) Vibrant nose, touch tropical but flushed through with a modest blast of pithy lemon. Taste is also lemony and citrussy but with some sharp tropical fruitiness, getting some tangy passion fruit, soft in mouth with a nice carbonation. nicely bittersweet leaving a little furriness across the roof of the mouth. Superb! A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. First beer back in the UK after a 48-hour bender in Brussels. Pours cloudy golden-orange with a small, frothy white head. Beauty of an aroma, all citrus, herbs and pine. Flavor matches the goodness of aroma, with medium sweetness, light dry and toasty malts, fresh orange and grapefruit (slightly dried, perhaps), mild grass, melon. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly dry to finish, with a bit of urine, melon, bubblegum, herbal pine, moderate sweetness and lasting juicy citrus. Gorgeous beer. Itís good to be home.

A bottle from the fridge at Craft. Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Light palate, semi dry and crispy. Oh boy! Niiiice hops! Floral Motueka, lemon limey Pacific Jade and grapey Nelson Sauvin with a whisper of blackcurrant. The three hops in perfect balance, lovely exotic flavours. Semi dry finish with some minerals. Lovely!
