Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Cloudy, pale orange colour. Thin, broken, white head. Orange juice. Grapefruit. Some grassiness. Taste is chalk dry. Light herb. Bitter, light astringent finish. Love how Kernel beers like this are so stupid easy to drink.

androman (441) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
ABV 5.2%. 33cl bottle @ home from De Molen, 2 moths expired. Hazy orange color, but lots of yeast from the bottom makes it copper, big off-white creamy fully lasting excellent lacing head. Nose tropical fruits and citrus, aroma fruits, grapefruit, floral, quinie, hops, light caramel, some herbs, more hops, tons of hops. Taste light to medium sweetness, heavy hoppy bitterness, slightly acidic and salty. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation but awakens and grows in the mouth, long lasting very hoppy bitter finish. Very refreshing, delicious, quite IPA-ish, great one.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, 5.3% version. Aroma is a very strong piney tropical fruits smell, which belies itís dull cloudy light brown colour. Taste is a big punch of hops, tasty tropical fruits, juicy peach and grapefruit with a medium bitter finish. This is really well balanced, utterly delicious too.

leaparsons (8174) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a large foam. Aromas are dusty yeast with light mixed tropical fruit and mushroom. Earthy and yeasty with woody notes. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with earthy, woody notes and yeast. Maybe past its best condition.

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 12/04/2014. Murky orange with a medium white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of pine, grapefruit, malt and mineral notes. Taste is slightly/moderately bitter with grapefruit, pine, good malt backbone and light peppery finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Good balance and amazing drinkability. Not stellar, but itís doing exactly what a Pale Ale should achieve. Really quenching.
