3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours a muddy, murky reddish brown. I actually thought I’d screwed up and made it all yeasty, but I hadn’t. One of the ugliest beers visibly I’ve had for a long time. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, spice and a touch of caramel. Taste is a bit sweetish up front, with a bitter citrus note, rye spice and a touch of breadiness. Medium body, moderately dry and a long flavourful bitter finish. Classic Kernel - very technically good but a little soporific and unexciting.

0,33l bottle at home from trade with minutemat, big thanks. Bottled 01.09.2015, BB 01.01.2016. quite dark red lightly hazy color, medium big tan head. hmm, lovely nose, nice fruity hops, nice notes of berries, light raspberries, some mango, light citric notes, also a very light sweetness, some pines and a fresh smell of grass. Love the smell. medium body (rather light at first), soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel that gets even a bit creamy after a bit. taste is pretty much in accordance to smell, nice fruits again, very nice notes of tropical fruits, light grapefruit zest, pines and hints of grass, berries again, lightly of raspberries, a bit more sour / acidic more like red currants. finishes light dry and light bitter with some grapefruit zest and some pines. Again very nice beer, Red Ales are a favorite of mine, this one is a great example of the style, would drink again.
