Garrold (1715) - 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.

dfroms (349) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle, coming up on two months old. Pours lightly cloudy pale orange with small layer of white bubbles. Aroma is doughy, candied orange, honey, light pine, grass, and a spicy rye-like note. Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit peel, sweet and bready malts, and moderate pine with pithy/soapy bitterness. Slick and oily palate. A citrus bomb that reminds me of a toned down Two Hearted. Decent.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2014

ThirstyBird (1706) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2014
Pours a hazy dull yellow,orange with a nice creamy colored head. The smell is fruit, citrus, mild pine. The taste is as it smells and dry on the end. Light body with very elegant carbonation. A beer with subtlety and nuance...delightful.

androman (503) - 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.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Keg @ Craft Beer Co, Clapham. Pours hazy copper with white head. Zesty tropical fruit aroma continuing to the taste, with lime, pine, bitter resin and a touch of grapefruit. Bright, easy-drinking pale.
