[500ml bottle, The Bottle Shop, Canterbury] Pours clear orangeish amber, until the trademark Kernel yeast layer trickles into the glass, leaving it hazy. Bitter citrus aromas, very pithy on the nose. Tastewise, citrus from start to finish, very refreshing - decent orange hop bitterness leading into the dry finish. All Evinís pale ales are like this - for me I prefer the more rounded fruitiness of the PASouth - this is still a great pale ale, however [26062011]

Bottled. A golden beer with an off-white head and a little lace. A gorgeous aroma. Oranges and grapefruit and a bit of spiciness. Great clean citrus flavours in the mouth, again with a bit if sting. A lovely balance and depth of flavour. Delicious.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle at home. Hazy, dark gold pour with some sediment and a frothy, white head. Tangy, lemony hops in the aroma with some grass. Lightly malty flavor, some faintly sweet bread, earthy, dirty bitterness, lots of citrus rind. Medium bodied with fairly effervescent carbonation. Drying and lightly sticky on the finish, more dirt, grass and bitter citrus rind. Good stuff.

Hazy amber beer, not much of head but itís a careful pour you need with these Kernel bottle conditioned beers. Crisp palate, a little dry. Bitterish orange that gradually sweetnes up. A little sweet yeast underneath. Some peach and mango coming through in the dry finish. Crisp, hoppy and tasty!

Bottle at home from Kris Wines, London. Hazy orange pour with a fairly restrained white head. Fragrant hop and citrus (grapefruit) prominent in the nose with some biscuity malt. Flavour had plenty of spicy hop bitterness, further fruity notes and a hint of wood. Dried out towards the finish. Not outstanding, but very tasty and drinkable nonetheless.

Bottle, from the brewery, consumed at home. Hazy orange-gold appearance with thinning white lacing, aroma is grapefruit, floral hops, hey, some nice hop bite but not too aggressive and prolly lost a little as my dumb arse didnít rate this fresh on Saturday! Taste is gorgeous. Oranges, mango, grapefruit, big hop bite, huge drinkability, really easy to drink IPA. The combination works and is an interesting and refreshing summer beer.

500ml bottle at the Dean Swift on 8 February 2011. Cloudy orange colour. Fluffy white head. Slow gusher. Not particularly aromatic in Kernel terms and the hops werenít quite as vibrant on the palate as usual either. Perfectly acceptable but there seemed to be something not quite spot on here.

Bottle with Chriso at The Dean Swift, Tower Bridge. Cloudy orange gold colour with lasting near white head. Touch of diacetyl on aroma I think. Not quite right in the hops either. Bit acidic. I mean I have such huge respect for The Kernel beers and my expectations are so high that when I have one that isnít stunning, Iím a bit surprised. This wasnít one of the better ones I thought. Mind you, still a decent enough beer.
