3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 6.8% @ home. Aroma is funky fruity hops, some caramel, some candy like/lemonade like notes. Flavour has some liquorice, caramel, subtle weird liquorice/ burned caramel like bitterness. Hmm, first kernel beer Iím (slightly) dissapointed by. But to be fair itís still a nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful brew. RIch amber colour with a spicy, vegetal, caramel nose with nice pine, citrus aromas. Palate is much the same, very complex yet drinkable. Very good.

Iím not normally a big fan of amber ales although Iím not sure thatís precisely what this is. Itís got a big malty sweetness while still bitter from the hops and, as always from the kernel, remarkably fresh. Maybe this is what Iíve been missing.

Lovely red-brwn with a beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, strong floral hops. Taste is light sweet, with a long bitter finish. Oily texture, light carbonation. Really good beer.
