wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Murky amber pour, looked not unlike dehydrated piss, oh yum, with a restrained off white head. Fragrant aroma of resinous hop and juicy citrus. Bags of fruit present in the flavour too, alongside some more gentle hop bitterness than perhaps anticipated. A quite charming and as ever wholly drinkable pale ale from London’s finest.

Bottle. Amber yellow, creamy white head. Rich fruit aroma, guava, pineapple, pronounced doughy notes also. Sherbet juicy fruit palate, somewhat herbal and a long drying linger. Tasty.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Cask, Derby Winter Fest 2012. Hazy orange with a thin head. Aromas are oranges, pine and perfumed floral notes with soft spices. Woody with traces of creamy oak and caramel. Mixed tropical with dominant pineapple. Flavours are sweet mixed citrus and tropical fruit with dry yet creamy oak. Herbal with pine and grapefruit bitterness. Another great Kernel.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
500ml bottle from AP Harvey Wines, Coventry. Weizen looks. Aroma of huge beauty; humid, perfumed fruits including guava, mango and pineapple; fine-haired green stems, deep biscuit base. Taste ain’t bad either; humming tropical fruits over nutty, biscuity malt. Moussey, chalky-soft, cask-like condition. At 5%, approaching my idea of perfection.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle at the Kernel Brewery. It pours cloudy orange, with a thin white head. The nose is pine, hay and orange citrus fruits. The taste is orange, mango, zingy lemon, grapefruit pith, kumquat, earth, pine and some resin, with a long dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Light, fruity and damn tasty.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, white foam head. Gorgeous aroma of grass, pee, pine, wood, pineapple. Flavor is awesome. Sweet and lightly bready, with tangy grass, dry pine and grass, mild zesty citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation and a satin-like mouthfeel. Semi-dry finish, some toasty pale malts, wood, sun-burnt grass, citrus pith, some bittersweet grapefruit. Super stuff here.
