Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Cask, gravity at the Boreft Beer Festival, De Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands 24.09.11 One of the very few Kernel beers that I’ve had from a cask. Poured warm gold some haze, soft in mouth and not quite got the zappiness and hop kick of others from the Kernel stable but I suppose the others I have are more often IPA’s. Some soft sweetish lemon and then a dry, bitter, curly finish but it is much more gentle maybe because of the lack of carbonation, however it is very agreeable. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Cask @ Borefts Beer Festival. Hazy yellow, not much head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, orange, sour fruits like citrus and pineapple, a hint of bubble gum, candy floss, a dank characteristic along with the slightly rural and hayish yeast that characterizes many of The Kernel’s beers. Taste is hoppy harmony, all the tropical marvelousness of the aroma, balanced bitterness and the Kernel’s yeast which I find very interesting. A lovely APA!

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Cask at BBF. Cloudy lemonade color. No head, no carbonation. Hoppy, very hoppy in the nose. Citrusy, lemon and grapefruit mostly. Sweet and malty with a huge hop taste and aftertaste. If this was carbonated it would be one hell of a beer. Not bad flat, but could be better.
