UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Aroma: Huge tangerine, grapefruit and apricot aroma. Subtle pine notes, but the fruity hops dominate.

Appearance: Slightly milky, pale orange body with a small white head that quickly fades. Fantastic lacing.

Taste: Fruit salad taste that reminds me of Jelly Tots sweets. Like the aroma, tangerine, grapefruit and apricot are the key flavours. Very juicy, with a lovely balance between the sharp tanginess and fruity sweetness.

Palate: Light to medium body with a slick mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation.

Overall: This is the first Kernel beer Iíve had on cask and itís truly incredible. This pale ale is very light and fruity - I could drink it all day.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2012 Bottled@chriso (As Mr Lawrence 1992-2012). Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and some sweet malts as well as some sweet herbal notes. Flavour is wooden, fruity, floral, caramelly and rather balanced. Floral and fruity hops in aftertaste making it rather well balanced and refreshing.

Bottle unsurprisingly from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Peach, pineapple and mango aroma. Peach and tropical fruit flavour. Lots of lingering fruit. Nice.

On tap at charity festival. Lots of pine, oily hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Real strong hop character, could easily be classified as an IPA. Delicious!

Palme (3441) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. This is a cloudy straw yellow beer with a nice medium heavy lacing white head. It smells really hop-fruity and extreme fresh! Malty and fruity, citrus and almost hedge. Mild gentle and subtle hoppy fruity flavors. Quite low on the carbonation. Fruity finish with a twitch of citrus and mineral water. Nice pale 11.05.2012

Thanks to Rick Furzer for saving my ass on this one that I so nearly missed! Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Smooth palate with a crisp edge, semi dry. Mild pithy orange, even milder grapefruit - barely there. Mild minerals and a little fresh tangerine. Underpinned by a little creamy malt it finishes smooth and dry with a distinct starfruit flavour. Refreshing but quite hop light for Kernel.
