MannyGoldberg (164) - The big bad LDN, Greater London, - MAY 20, 2012
6.7% keg from Crown & Anchor in Brixton. As with other recent Kernels this is a slightly lower ABV than previous versions. Overall the usual great aroma and colour but the mouthfeel and flavour not as satisfying as before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Leighton. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Fruity hops, some citric and tropical notes, moderate bitterness, and a clean finish with relatively low sweetness. Oh yeah, big shock, another great pale ale from Kernal..... Puke.

mR_fr0g (4000) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Keg at the brewery. Translucent golden bright coloured pour with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is super juicy, little dank citrus, some nice tropical fruits, lovely. Flavour is composed of light sweet base malt, citrus light dank. Assertive clean citrus bitterness. Lingering zesty lemon citrus. Palate is crisp, moderate high carbonation. Really good.

Garrold (1732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Trembling Madness Drinks Shop, York. Hazy orange. Messy, sticky, lasting, bright white head. Juicy, mandarin, peachy hop. Slightly woody, pithy, citric hop. Very grainy, sweet malts. Taste is sweet, turning light bitter. Palate is soft, with some chew. Finishes light, long bitter. Was expecting a lot from the latest batch of this, but it’s too malty sweet.
