At the Cock Tavern brewpub. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Little skunk and mild minerals. A little grapefruit, tangy orange and a touch of lemon - lime. Light floral notes. A light creamy malt base. Lovely fresh APA.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bottled 19.03.2013 bb 19.07.2013, 2 months old
Hazy golden to amber color, with generous head. Very nice aroma, powerful, with citrus fruits, lemon, and hop resins; also a touch of spicy yeast, a bit feety. The mouthfeel is very dry; with some malt flavor, there is a strong hopping, both resiny and fruity (bitter oranges and some lemon); the yeast character is strong too.
Pleasant, but without the fresh character that I would like, and a bit unclean.

Bottle at the brewery, thanks to Paul. Pours hazy gold with a fine, frothy white head. Aroma holds lots of dried citrus, rind, light pee, tangerine. Light to medium sweet flavor, mild bitterness, lemon rind, tangerine, some sand, hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance. Mild dryness to finish, dried lemon, straw. Super.

Theydon_Bois (8652) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Bottle at home after a hard days work, 06/04/13, from the brewery bottled 11/03/13. Hazy pale golden with a thin off white head that dissipates to a film. Nose is juicy tropical fruits, mango, orange pith, grapefruit, fresh hops, light pine. Taste comprises bitter sweet grapefruit, orange sherbet, light mango, residual sugars, citrus, pale malts, hops, pine needles, mineral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation pitched perfectly, hop bitterness in the finish. Top draw - I canít recall a better pale from the Kernel!

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Bottle at Kernel as "Pale Ale Citra Simcoe Ahtanum". It pours hazy gold with a medium white head. The nose is orange squash, sweet tangerine, orange chewits and playdough. The taste is pithy citrus, orange, tangerine, sherbet, earth, dough and pine with a dry, rather bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, bitter yet well balanced and massively drinkable. One of Kernelís best APAs of late.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Keg @ The Kernel. The pourís a hazy light orange color with a tiny white head. The aromaís distinctly of grape must. White concord grape. Moderate citrus aromas. Orange peel, marmalade, etc. Chalky bitterness on the palate. Lemon drizzle cake flavors with a hint of cheese. Mild mineral. Orange fruit leather. Light body, moderate carbonation. Overall, a bit chalky. The flavors werenít especially bright in this sample. Iíll have to go against the grain and say that on this showing this is one of the Kernelís lesser recent efforts.

500ml bottle from Quel Vin. Muddy amber brown, not much head. Grapefruit & mango aroma. Flowery resin hop flavour. Grapefruit aftertaste. Not as intense as most Kernel Beers.

Keg @ Hanging Bat. Hazy pale amber brown colour, not much head. Biscuit hop aroma. Flowery hop flavour. A bit watery for a Kernel beer.
