3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy gold, with a tiny layer of white head. Not much going on with the mouth feel. Peach and mango up front, some pine, not much from the malt, and an orange peel finish. Bit underwhelming.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Keg at Cafe Oto. A bit less murky than most Kernel pales. Light lemon and lime aroma. Bit of grapefruit and some dank hops. Taste is medium dry and bitter with a zippy effervescent carbonation. Light and refreshing.

Bottle at home picked up from the brewery. Nice Kernel catch up rate. Translucent golden dull orange coloured pour with a lasting thin film of white head.Aroma is really nice pithy citrus, orange with fleshy mango, Flavour is composed of bready, doughy malts, orange and mango. Assertive, slightly rough grassy hop bitterness. Palate is semi sweet, grainy, highish carbonation. Good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 5.3% version, bottled 22/07/14. Bottle from BottleDog, London, drank at home.Delicious aroma of citrus, resin, pine, and some light hay maltiness. Burnished gold, clear, with minimal quickly-dissipating off-white head. Medium sweet then plenty of lasting bitterness. Medium body, creamy, soft carb/almost flat (like well-conditioned cask ale), long bitter finish.Overall, what would have been a really solid effort for a single hop APA is spoiled somewhat by being flat. I guess it?s about expectations; had I ordered it off a handpull it would?ve been different.
