3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
BBE was a couple of weeks ago, thus almost 5 months old bottle. A hazy, light yellow beer with a weak and white head. The nose is fruitfull and tropical, citrusfruits, some pine needles and chalk. Taste is nicely bitter, pine needles, citrusfruits. Almost medium bodied, quite fresh. BBE is gone and it can be noticed, not so sophisticated, anymore. Anyway, nicely bitter and tropical beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 18-12-2013. Best before 18-04-2014. So almost 4 months old and only 3 days before the BB date. Hazy golden/orange with a small spotty white head and some lacing. Aroma in mainly earthy with citrus, tropical fruits and light malt/caramel. Taste is also mostly earthy with citrus, tropical fruits, a good malt backbone and light bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. A bit sticky. I can imagine that it was probably way more citrusy when fresh. Now, it’s a decent Pale Ale with the earhy hops being a tad too much presents. The finish is also a little too sticky. But an average/not completely fresh The Kernel Pale Ale is still better than most Pale Ale available.

Color oro pálido tupido con espuma blanca. Aromas afrutados, melocotón y cítricos. En boca es algo aguada pero tiene un rico amargor resinoso final. Buena.

Sobresalen los aromas a lúpulos resinosos, podría pasar por una ipa americana no muy fuerte. Está buenísima pero no me parece de las mejores de Kernel.
