Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Tidy off white head. Palate is light, crispy and semi dry. Lovely clean fresh hops. Bitter floral notes. Mild skunk. Marmalade orange and a little mango. Tagerine pith. Mint. Trace of lemon. All on fresh clean malt. Semi dry finish with a little fresh hop sting. Delicious!

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours mostly clear gold, lightly effervescent, with a strong, frothy white foam head. Beautiful aroma, some lightly toasted sugars, juicy orange, grapefruit, pear. Light to medium sweet flavor, some semi-dry berries, rich and somewhat bitter citrus fruits, mild honey and caramel, some dry wood, dry grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, faintly resinous finish, dry orange, lemon rind, lightly toasted pale malts. Typically great Kernel APA.

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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, 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.
