4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Sarah at home picked up at the brewery. Wonderful aroma bursts from the glass, lovely bouquet of tropical fruit, peach melba, lychee, orange. Classic kernel appearance, golden orange with a light hazed and a lasting thin white head. Flavour is composed of clean base malt with light wheraty grainyness. Hops are grassy, lemon rind, tropical fruits, pineapple. Bitterness is slightly rough round the edges with a bit of hop leaf and grassyness. Palate is medium bodies, grainy and moderate carbonation. Flavour is not quite as good as the aroma would have you believe but overall very pleasing.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl bottle Coppers 8til8 Newcastle. Gorgeous grapefruit aroma, equally well flavoured with the same & a great background biscuit note. Very smooth and rounded, subtle and moreish. Some sherbert, grass and blackcurrant in the finish, which is lingering and nigh on perfect. Superb yet again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a thick white head. No visible carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of mango, pineapple and white bread. Flavour of lime, grapefruit and biscuit. Medium body with an oily texture. Faint carbonation prickle. Cask-like quality. Soft, fruity and incredibly moreish - a little more fizz would be nice. In my opinion, no brewery showcases hops as successfully as The Kernel.

Flavour is dry and fruity, with notes of peach and pineapple, along with subverted pine and lingering fruity notes. A great rendition of this pale ale. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg, Hanging Bat. Hazy, a little dull on the hops - getting more galaxy here - with a mild pale malt character. It is made well but maybe wasn’t thought out with brightness and expressive character in mind.
