Tap at CBC Brixton, 06/2014. Pours a hazy pale orange with a white head. Sherbetty, candy aroma with a little orange. Light to medium body, mild carbonation. The lack of carbonation was unexpected - slightly lifeless. Lemon sherbet, light wood, orange... Tasty enough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from the brewery. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Very nice aroma with pissy hops, orange, grapefruit, straw, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavor with juicy orange, tangerine, light pale bready sweetness, some minerals. Light bodied with fine, slightly softened carbonation. Great balance on the finish, incredibly smooth, with only minor bitter pine needles, lots more expressive citrusy hops, grapefruit and orange, some melon. If the condition was a little livelier this would be even better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
23rd June 2014
The Pale Ale that never was returns! Despite two searches of the brewing records, no trace of the original entry from 2010 was ever found. Four years later and here it is, for the first time! Light haze on this gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and smooth, a mild trailing crispness. Light malt base, a little dry. Good but light hops - oraneg and lemon, sherbetty but rounded off by floralness. Traces of mango and peach. Mild peel bitterness. Finishes light. Very nicely joined up. Welcome back to something that never was!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery and drunk at home. 5.3% ABV version. Gold slight haze lasting off white head. Big massive grapefruit aroma. Tasty pale ale. Decent pale malts and then this layer of citrus fruit over the top. Just so easy drinking. Watching Anderson and Moeen Ali trying to save the 2nd test vs Sri Lanka. Another good apa from The Kernel
