jonno (2346) - JAPAN - JAN 19, 2013
Moreish tropical fruit nose - Kernel PAs have some of the ripest aromas around. Smooth body, light and a bit fizzy. Fruity with a soft bitter finish.

jackl (5919) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Scopey (9792) - 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 (520) - 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.
