wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle, Spring 2013 from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Slightly hazy golden pour, crowned with a bubbly white head. Enticing nose containing some lovely fruit. Flavour was piney hop, citrus and a little sweet malt. Dried out towards the finish. All told, a cracking APA that is oh so drinkable.

Aniela (2301) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a small offwhite head. Sweet hoppy, a bit orangesnotes and some herbal aroma. Hoppy, sweet and some fruity flavour.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle at Ales and Tails, Twickenham, 02/03/13. Bottled 14/12/12. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Nose is hops, orange squash, light grapefruit, mango. Taste follows, orange pith, light mango, grapefruit, pine, hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in a dryish finish. Decent stuff but not the best Kernel APA.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle, thanks to jackl at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, mango, passion fruit and light spice. The taste is earth, wood, pithy citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit and light spice with a pleasantly bitter finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and flavoursome.

Niksko (263) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark golden with two fingers of foamy white head. Aroma is peach for days and a bit of pine resin. Very strong. Taste is a bit of peach, grapefruit bitterness, slight resin and something else that?s really lovely but I can?t put my finger on. Delicious and balanced.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ Byron Burger, South Ken. The pour’s a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The nose is tangerine, light soap, fresh resinous pine tree and a bit of cheese. The taste is quite woody, full of coniferous freshness. A touch of citrus and exotic fruit. Dry bitterness on the finish. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a touch too dry to be considered a top-shelf Kernel brew. Still, good.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2013
500ml bottle- all of it, bits included. Beautiful fresh squeezed grapefruit, pine sap, intense flowers, almost patchouli nose. Lean and punishing with an iron-like richness; soap and flowers, G+T dryness, husk, greenery. Fairly massive bitterness subsiding into biscuit crumbs and a dab of honey. Finely misted orange with a low white head. Almost too much.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Poured without haze! Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are spiced oranges with lemon and leafy, herbal notes with coriander. Floral with grapefruit and woody notes. Flavours are piney and woody with hints of caramel. Grapefruit with mango and lemon. Peppery with a fruity, dry finish. Very good.

spacecube (650) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Bottled 14/12/12, 6 weeks old. Hazy, golden brown pour, small head, in the nose citrus hops, in the mouth they come to life more, orange peel, grapefruit, mango. Plenty of fruitiness. some caramel sweetness, Quite well balanced ale with a bit more emphasis on the hops and with a crisp bittersweet finish. Nce

500ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Hazy deepish gold colour with lasting white head. Attractive hoppy tangerine aroma. Some earthyness in the mouth. A touch of soap. Drinkable hoppy and fruity. Aroma is great.
