Bottled on 06/11/13. Pours a hay orange/brown with a white head. Aroma is tangerine and light tropical fruit. Light body, a little thin, medium carbonation. a little ginger, orange, rye, mildly herby, light caramel. It’s OK, a little thin, not on a par with the majority of other kernel beers I’ve had. Plenty drinkable though.

Bottle, bottle date 2013-11-05. Close to clear copper with a small off white head. Lots of pine, white bread, bark, earthy, tangerine, light grapefruit. Medium body, little sweetness, dry finish with long lasting bitterness. I always enjoy The Kernel pale ales, but this one is more bitter and dry than I prefer.
