Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2012
In bottle, thanks Rich. This was a gusher leaving an opaque, golden amber beer with a decent beige head. Aroma of caramel, treacle, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours and quite bitter. Heavy carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle and Keg at the Kernel Brewery. It pours cloud dark red, with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is dough, farmyard, leaf, hay, raw hop and a touch of bubblegum. The taste is pine, resin, oily hop, leaf, mandarin, tangerine, marmalade and hay, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well balanced and flavoursome. Delicious!

CraftBeerNick (826) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle at home 22nd March 2012. Pours cloudy, red, brown colour good head that grows a bit. Aroma is strong sweet citrus and pine sap perfume, this follows though in the taste which is delicious sweet hops and well balanced, some malt. Great beer, will pick some more up from London ASAP.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Caramel red/brown coloured with small golden head. Aroma is hoppy, fruit, orange, bit of pine, some citrus and some kind of sweeter berry. Bit of grain too. Taste is hoppy bitterness, and fruity sweet, maybe strawberry, along with lemon and orange. Malty too, maybe a bit bread-like, but sweet bread. Finish is slowly diminishing hoppy bitterness and malt. Really nice.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours red-gold, almost clear, with a foamy, off-white head. Toasty pine in the nose, some berries and ripe citrus. Nice flavor, medium sweet, with some under ripe grapefruit, dirt, pine, and tangy dark citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sticky, resinous finish, lots of dirty bitterness, plenty of citrus rind, pine sap, grapefruit, mild wood, and toast. A very nice twist on the usual Kernel IPA.
