Garrold (4242) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. 5.4%. Hazy, dark orange. Kernel head. Nose has some earthy, stone fruit hop. Peach and apricot. Orange peel. Some ripe, summer berry. Taste is mellow, earthy bitter. Trace of malt sweetness. Light to medium body. Soft fizz. More of the earthiness on the finish. Ok, but lacking a bit of juiciness, given the hops used.

JackMandarin (215) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle from Bridgend Service Station, Freuchie. Pours with the usual deep haze. Lightish amber with a darker middle in the glass. White head that fades slowly. The usual awesome aroma. Lots of tropicality with balance. Syrupy pineapple. Guava. Oranges. Peaches. Some red berry notes too. Taste has a lovely juice-drink sweetness. Sweet brioche malts. Pithy bitterness comes through quickly. Doesn’t assert itself too harshly. Weirdly, there’s a metallic thing I can’t quite pin down. Thin but proportionate body and mouthfeel for a pale ale. Carbonation is restrained. The usual high standards from the Kernel.....I expect nothing less

ThirstyBird (2600) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle, pours a hazy dull orange with an 0ff-white head. The smell is citrus, toasted malt, bit of earth. The taste is crisp citrus, a bit of tropical fruit then crisp and dry at the end - almost herbal. The body is light with fine, soft carbonation.

The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
500ml bottle at home in Richmond as ’The Kernel Pale Ale Citra Galaxy Summit’, 5.4%, 5 weeks old. Hazy dirty orange, opaque, still, foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is airy, pine, tangerine, pineapple. Body is light, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is sodawater, eathy, cardboard, pine, light mint. Very little to it for a Kernel offering. Good but falls short of The Kernel’s usual standards.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Tap at the Lyric. Nice citrusy taste, orange and lemon, light bitterness. Bit of pineapple at the end. Light twigginess from the citra I guess. Good stuff

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A more or less clear one, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma has peaches, pine cones and some notes of catpee. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with a touch of pale malts. Peaches, oranges and pine cones too. Medium to full body and a tad too little carbonation. Lasting finish. Tasteful and easy drinkable, but a tad too weak all the way. 140418
