Great class of beer. Great brewer. Great hops. Couldn’t be simpler of better really. Lots of sweet zesty orange coming from the amarillo. As always from the kernel, the malt is heavy and smooth. Close to perfection.

Bottle at home, 31st August 14. Aromatic nose, some perfume and pine needles. Taste is solid, pine resin, floral hops, good palate and a clean malt profile, nice

Ferris (4500) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft - Grapefruit and pine with some earth.  Hazy gold with a decent white head.  Sweet pine and resin. Piny bitterness and sweetness throughout.  A bit overly sweet for me.

Beersiveknown (3077) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at home from eebira. 5.3%
Hazy pale amber low carbonation, pithy with a touch of orange but lacking the massive fruit flavour of some kernel brews.

imdownthepub (10488) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Bottled, 500ml (at 5.6% ABV) from S.H Jones in Banbury. Hazy orange gold with white head. There is a lovely fruity aroma to this on opening the bottle. On drinking there is a juicy orange flesh character along with citric grapefruit and lemon flavours. The body is light and dry, maybe a hint of biscuit. Overall a very pleasant beer.

mcberko (6708) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at The Kernel, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavour brings out loads of piney hops, smooth dry biscuity malt and a light astringency. Exceptionally well-balanced and simplistic in its greatness. Excellent pale ale.

Palme (3455) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2014
0.33l bottle @ Cask Pub & Kitchen. Doesn’t look amazing in the glass this. Deep blurry and mild orangey colored with a dirty quickly disappearing and light sidesticking off-white head. Smells more grainy than apa-ish. Well, OK there are some fresh citrussy tones going on here with a little bit of dark caramel and ripe peaches but the graininess dominates the aroma here. Haven’t had that in a kernel beer before. Tastes much better. Fresh, crisp and lots of zesty citrus bitterness. Mild oily in the mouth with a mild oily mouthfeel. Soft grassy, and reminds me of green Mr freeze. Could of course be an old bottle, but that again would be a bit strange. A tasty one with a somewhat disappointing aroma and looks. 09.11.2013

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a longlasting white head. Has a fruity malty citrus hoppy weak peachy aroma. Fruity malty citrus hoppy flavor. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter citrus finish.

tom10101 (2961) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Tap @ The Kernel (Greater London). Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a small white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of resinous hops, herbal notes and citrus. Taste is slightly sweet with resinous hops, grapefruits/citrus, good malt backbone and herbal notes. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. A little less explosive than the Summit Pale Ale I had just before this one, but still a very good Pale Ale and I could drink a ton of if.
