Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours light hazed golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of minty fresh hops, some grapefruit as well, malty body underneath. Smooth mouthfeel, crisp and fresh fruity hops, pine, herbal and minty. Not disappointed by this one from Kernel, tasty and moreish.

jmgreenuk (4594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle at the Brewdog Bar, Camden. Poured a cloudy medium yellow with a thin broken head. The aroma is floral and hoppy leading to a similar flavour with a big bitter hoppy aftertaste. A very refreshing summer beer and well worth the high rating.

shoulderbroken (2105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Light amber colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, tropical, peach, pineapple, bit of twigginess too. Some tartness. Taste is nice. Lots of bitterness at the end, grapefruit, more fruit, twigs. Nice, but prefer the aroma to the taste.

JohnRMurdoch (3316) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2012
500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy golden amber brown colour, not much head. Resin hop aroma. Fruity tar hop flavour. Sharp on palate with resin hop aftertaste. Another good Kernel Pale Ale.

jamestulloch (1440) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Aroma: Yeast, pine and tangerine.

Appearance: Murky amber body with a thick white head that slowly fades. Good lacing.

Taste: The flavours are quite muted. Tangy grapefruit and apricot. Dry finish.

Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: Not the most complex or flavoursome Kernel beer I’ve tried, but it’s still pretty tasty.

Theydon_Bois (9054) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Tap at Craft, Clerkenwell - 10/12/12. Hazed mid golden with a decent white head that retains well. Nose is bitter orange, hops, light pine, touch smoke, apricots, light mango notes. Tastes of pine, hops, bitter notes, grapefruit, mineral tones. Medium bodied, soft fine carbonation, bitter finish. Excellent pale ale!

Lightly hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth palate with modest fine carbonation, semi dry. Fresh malt base, touch of cream. Nice hops - mildly tangy mango and lime with a little pine and a spot of grapefruit pith. Finishes smooth and dry with a little grass and light floral flavours. Another belter of a PA from the mighty Kernel.
