asheft (2553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
[bottle at Danish Invasion tasting with cgarviuk and fonefan--thanks, fellas!] US hops right up front in the aroma with a little cat piss and salt. Hazy appearance under a white cover. Dry, assertive, almost woody hops bitterness with strawberry and pine notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, moderately bitter finish.

BenH (2513) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle at craig’s. Aroma is quite sharp citrus hops, grapefruit, slight musty pissyness. Similar taste, plenty grapefruit, little resinous hops. Fairly bitter finish. Not bad for a kernel, quite similar to his otter beers.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 9, 2012
Bottle at the new brewery. Cloudy orange colour with white beige bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, orange citrus, bit of pine hops, some cream. Taste is equally fruity, grapefruit, orange, bitter, some yeastiness. Very satisfying bitter finish.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle at cgarvieuk’s - thanks Craig! Slightly hazy yellow/gold, moderate white head. Big fresh hop nose, slightly catty, big pineapple and grapefruit flavours too. Nice dry, juicy front, big grapefruit, some citrus, resinous pine also. Slightly herbal on a long bitter finish. Standard Kernel pale ale (though that’s not a bad thing!).

flip_soeperman (647) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2012
spruce, barnyard, caramel, orange, hazy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation. Nice bitterness but could be a bit more pronounced flavour wise

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Golden. White, persisting head. Light-medium carbonation. Aroma - In-your-face fruity hops, that are quite tropical, with sweet melon & a bit of banana, and some spiciness, but also some drier, citrus notes underneath it - quite a nice balance. Taste - Good fruity flavours matching the aromas; quite a delicate balance of lightly sweet tropical fruits and some drier grapefruit & spicy flavours. Lightly sweet beginning, slowly transitioning to a nice, crisp, light bitterness at the end. Quite a heavy body for a pale, bit frothy in the mouth. Well-balanced, tasty, fruity pale, with an interesting mix of hop aroma/flavours.
