Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Tap at the brewery - London. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Lovely aroma, loaded with fresh and pithy citrus, some lemon and orange. Light sweet flavor with further pleasant citrus pith, balanced pale malts, minerals, peach and mango. Light bodied with fine, caressing carbonation. Clean, stony finish with dry orange and grapefruit. Great.

jamestulloch (3486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius. Murky amber body with a medium white head. Excellent lacing. Pungent tropical fruit aroma - pineapple, lime and mango. Caramel and Milkybar in there too. Flavour of grapefruit, pineapple and a hint of chocolate. Sweet and juicy. Medium body with an oily texture. Carbonation is almost flat. A fruity, flavoursome APA. This version was 5.4%.

JackMandarin (225) - 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

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

Bottle bought at Beer-Gonzo. Shared at Fuck-Zwanze-tasting. Citrus, fruity and pretty bitter. I like it.

McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Big dense cardboardy murk, a fair old sludge of a pour and a thin white head. Nose is quite busy sherbert, dry grass and sweet citrus. Initial taste is papery sweetness and a decent glint of grapefruit, creamy sweetness later. Carbonation is almost non-existent but mouthfeel is gritty. Finishes fibrous and vibrant mango and sweeter tropical fruit with a nice smattering of minty citrus hopiness on the linger. Decent stuff but it looks and drinks like it was out of a juice carton, still exceptionally flavourful for the ABV.

Bottle, Hoptimism
