I like this - flavour and aroma are great and punchy. But. It’s a bit too bitter for my liking but it’s splitting hairs really

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, poured bright orange with fluffy white head. As always with Kernel, there?s a bit of haze; hops or sediment, probably both. Scent is incredible, it?s all pine and mangoes, with a hint of sweetness. Taste backs this up with an aggressive pine finish with plenty of sweet tropical fruit to begin with. In all another wonderful beer from the Kernel.

10th December 2011
Hazy tangerine coloured beer, good white head. Light palate. Dry and a little crispy. A little lacto cream in the even pale malt. A little fresh orange and grapefruit, the grapefruit providing bitterness. That typical Galaxy earthy mango is here but very subtle. Fairly bitter dry finish with mild minerals. Real legs in the bitterness that reach long in to the aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours hazy, dull gold with a foamy, white head. Woody and pithy hops in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some dry grass, wood, pithy citrus, toast. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. The bitterness in the finish is a touch harsh. There’s a bit of astringency to the wood and grass that really lingers. It’s a relatively small quibble, though, and overall the beer is very good.
