Keg at Bat. Slightly cloudy amber. Thin white head. Juicy mango, pineapple, light grassy nose. Juicy Lilt fruits up front, followed by a big whack of oily resin and a long grassy bitterness. Tastes like a bigger IPA more than a Pale but I’m not complaining!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from cotteridge wines. pours a nice golden colour with a minimal white head. the aroma, as with most Kernal beers, is pungent!! lovely tropical fruits, apricots coming right at cha’. Taste is much of the same with the added freshness of the hops problem was it was it was let down by avarage carb, a rather flat mouthfeel with an almost watery finish. a real shame as the inital impressions were so good just let down towards the end.
