Bottle at the Euston tap. Wow my favourite style of beer at it’s best. Pours a hazy amber orange. Full on fruity aroma. Perfect bitterness. What a beer!

Bottled 22/09/12. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. Lovely citrussy tropical fruit aroma. Excellent hoppiness in the mouth with just the right amount of bitterness. Good tropical fruits again. A good malt balance. A hint of spiciness. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Deep golden, milky, yellowish lacy head, solid tropical fruits in the bitter-sweet nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, relatively light bodied; solid fruitiness in the bitter-sweet finish. A goody...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green to a half pint glass (Jan ’12).
Cloudy amber-gold in colour with a decent enough white head on display, slowly subsiding as you drink.
Hoppy citrus aroma, some pine/wood in the nose.
Flavour wise stronger tropical citrus fruits, pineapple, maybe a little grapefruit and a smidge of hay/grass.Medium bodied, but seemingly light on the palate for 7% with a bitter sweet finish.

Bottle conditioned and lives up to it. Lovely lemony aroma opening with very little head. Lots going on in the taste. Earthy and strong.

Bottle from Rehills in Newcastle. Hazy amber coloured with tropical fruit and orange flavours and a sweet fruity finish with slight woody notes. Another superb beer from The Kernel.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Lovely musty aroma of candy and tropical fruit - lychee, papaya and mango.
Appearance: Hazy orange body, but to get the foamy white head, the beer needs to be poured straight almost into the glass rather than down its edge. Excellent lacing.
Taste: Tastes quite boozy - definitely tasting all of the 6.9% ABV. Initial malt sweetness with peach notes, then develops into a bitter, lingering finish.
Palate: Medium body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation.
Overall: Another tasty beer from Kernel, but it’s a slightly sweeter, more muted version if their Galaxy IPA, which is truly outstanding.
