3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Lovely, herby, aroma with grass, lemon, a little candy, hint of piss. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Mild funky veg, lemon, hint of caramel, pine, wood sap, hint if pastry, grass, nettle... Lovely balance, very drinkable. Tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours the expected pale haze, thin white head, quite a few large bubbles in there. Aroma is tropical hops, faint hint of cheese.
This has a medium body and a low carbonation, fairly creamy.
The mosaic hops shine through, deep resinous pine, good mix of citrus and tropical fruits, with a nice medium bitterness. This after-taste remains juicy, with a lingering soapy bitterness.
Another top Kernel offering.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (500 ml). Bottled 19-03-2014, so two weeks old. Hazy yellow/golden with a medium white head and heavy lacing. Aroma of juicy and dank resinous hops, burst of citrus and light floral notes. Taste is slightly bitter with intense dank and juicy resinous hops, citrus, good malt backbone and floral notes. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Another outstanding Pale Ale from The Kernel. So juicy and tasty. A Mosaïc soup. Just the right amount of bitterness. Extreme drinkability and super refreshing. Wow!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Soft greyed/cloudy orange with a decent contrast of white head. Soft milky/cheesy lychee. Clean and gummy, pine and cloudy lemonade bitterness. Fairly clean and breezy for a Kernel, nothing over the top and a bit chewy. The bottle probably spent a bit of time not totally upright in my bag mind...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Zesty, zinging citrus fruits to the max, this one turns it up to 12. A hint of furniture polish right at the very end which levels things out nicely. Good beer.

Bottled, 330ml from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Hazy gold with white head. This was quite a full on bitter beer, spruce with a resinous edge then bitter lemon and grapefruit. Teeth coating bitterness but really very good.
