Pelt Trader. Keg. Hazy gold beer with a tidy white head. Palate starts smooth but turns minerally crisp. Smooth pale malt, a little cream. Lovely fresh orange hops with a nice touch of peel. Bright and zingy! Traces of grapefruit and lemon. Light bitterness. Finishes minerally crisp with peel bitter linger. So nearly missed this lovely Pale Ale. Sank a pint in about 4 minutes!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico, 29/10/13.
Unusually clear, by Kernel standards, golden with a good sized off white head.
Nose is citric fruit, bitter orange, toasted malts, touch of mango, subtle hop waft.
Taste comprises orange pith, light grapefruit, earthy hop tones, bitter citrics.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, moderate hop bitterness in the finish.
Solid enough APA, but not the Kernel’s best by a few notches.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Dean Swift. Pours clear golden with a small, firm white head leaving nice lacing. Nose shows a fair chunk of grapefruit and orange, almost blood orange in its density. Taste is, however, quite grassy with some citric rind and very dry. Slightly minerally which works well for it. Great balance between bitterness and sweet fruits. Solid stuff as you’d expect from Kernel

5.3% draught. Clear pale gold lasting white head grapefruit and tangerine. Pretty good. Pale malts could be firmer. More bitter than some Kernel beers. Good though
