Bottled, date 10.09.13 BB 10.01.14, large sample. Hazy golden color, big white head. Aroma of grapefruit, bit citrus, bit pine, slight grassy and flowery (like opening a bag of freshly dried hop).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours hazy dull orange with a big, billowing white head leaving soapy lacing. Nose is a sweet and appealing fruit hit - tangerine, peach, passionfruit. There is a hint of lemon juice and white pepper. Nice. Taste is a mix of light tropical fruits and heavy stone fruits - passionfruit is there but is covered by heavy peach and apricot notes. Works well. Drinkability is great. Slightly sweet with a light bitterness running through. Solid Pale as Kernel’s always are
