Bottle shared thanks to Colin, Copenhagen, (13/08/2016 Colin visit Day2) - medium hazy golden coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of tropical and citrus fruits with some mandarin, lemon, peachy, spicy hop bite in the finish. Decent.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle split in CPH, 13/08/16. Hazed orange with a moderate off White head. Nose is toasted malt, melon, citric kissed straw, orange pith, a touch muted compared to normal. Taste comprises bread dough, tangerine, toasted grains, melon, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a moderate dose of hop bitterness. Ok APA but some way short of the Kernels best work.

Garrold (4348) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Cotteridge. 5.1%. Hazy, light amber. Thin, bubbly, messy, white head. Nose has lots of citrus zest. Pink grapefruit. Some orange. Hint of lime and lemon. Further notes of peach stone and strawberry. Smells good. Taste is light, fruity, zesty bitter. Touch of earthy dryness. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Shortish, bitter finish, that gets earthy and a little dry. Not super punchy (this bottle is eight weeks old), but nevertheless super drinkable.

Flavour is composed of light raw bready grains, spicy citrus, orange rind tangerine, hints of chalk in the finish. Palate is medium light, grainy, moderate carbonation, drying finish. Good stuff. Classic kernel pale

Keg@post office vaults, birmingham. Hazy golden beer with small head and patchy lacing. Aroma of mango, pineapple and citrus. Taste is mild pine resin, pineapple, citrus hops and chalk. Fizzy on the palate. Excellent, restores my faith in Kernel after a few so so beers.
