Backlog rating. Tap at the brewery tap room, London, during Zwanze Day 2014. Cheesy, smelly feet, rotten apples, more blue cheese. It smells like a spread, not a beer. Taste is marginally less offensive with some acidic fruity notes, but the cheese surrounding the smell is just nasty and though to swallow. Light in body with lively carbonation. Overall, the worst Kernel beer to date for me

Keg at Kernel Brewery at Zwanze Dat 20/09/2014. Really bright pink / red coloured pourwith a fleeting pink head. Aroma is woody, tannin, hint of sour, plum raspberry fruits. Flavour is composed of fresh woody raspberry and tart damson fruit, woody pips, light sour. Palate is super freshing, slight musty. Very satisfying.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A fantastic looking glowing almost artificial looking red and pink colored cloudy thing with a small light pinkish top. Looks amazing. Light tart sourness on the nose, fruity and a bit of starch. Oh, this has some amazing flavors this. This is incredible! Lovely tart, lots of citrus acidity, lime, rhubarb and red currants the same I had when I was a child. This thing is really bringing back some good memories. Why can’t they make a shit load of this, bottle it in massive quantities and sell it widely commercial? This just pure class and absolutely amazing. Beer of the festival? It’s damn sure as heck not far off. 04.05.2013
