3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled 24-02-2014. Murky orange with a medium easy to revive off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of citrusy (juicy) and piney hops along light malt and floral notes. Taste is citrusy with a good malt backbone, floral notes and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Easy to drink and quenching. The Pale Ales from The Kernel are awesome, but they are fading quickly. This one was pretty good, but it was probably a lot better just out of the gate. Still really tasty tough.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Euston Tap, Euston, London Sunday 30th March 2014 Really good thrusting, fresh and tasty pale ale. Some malt on nose but this is soon lost amongst the citrus. Hazy appearance, bittersweet in the mouth, really juicy and fruity. Nice, in fact very nice. Sat outside weather quite warm and lots of Peterborough ’Posh’ fans about fresh from their Wembley win over Chesterfield. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
