mR_fr0g (4391) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
500 ml bottle all to myself at home 5.4%. Nice to see Kernel rebrew some of the oldies. light hazed golden / straw coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is lovely juicy tropical fruits, of passion fruit and mango, zippy lemon. Little straw and yeast on the nose as well. Aroma really bursts from the the glass. Flavour is semi sweet base grains, little straw, juicy tropical fruity hop. Firm fruity, slightly grassy hop bitterness. Super drinkable. Palate is medium bodied, moderate to low carbonation and a little sticky hop.

SlackerMads (1836) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2014
Bottled on 2014-09-30. Unclear orange with a medium sized white head. I don’t find the nose to be very pleasant; white cheese, green onion some sharp chlorine like notes. The flavour is better though with some oranges, light candy and sugary malt, but the cheese and onion is still there. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, light sugary sweetness followed by bitterness into the finish. I usually enjoy The Kernel pale ales, so maybe I’m just not a Citra fan.

ThirstyBird (1880) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2014
Pours a dull yellow orange with a nice white head. The smell is citrus, delicate mild malt supporting. The taste is a subtle elegant citrus ramble ending lightly dry, fruity and slightly bitter. Fairly light in body with beautiful carbonation. A great beer!

Erzengel (4502) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2014
Many thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing! Very nice floral nose. Very smooth and fresh, intense floral, not too sweetish body, great fitting in. The beer is full-bodied, fresh, herbal hints, great smooth flavour with fresh floralness! Great!!
