Borefts 2011. A bit of cat piss aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. No head. The flavour has some NS notes, low carbonation. Low alcohol level? Not bad, though.

EdKing (2358) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle from The kernel Brewery. Pours amber and thick cloudy, with a soft foamy white head that dissipates. Nose is really nice fruit. Mango, papaya and then subtle citrous fruit: orange and bit of grapefruit. Some urine and a bit of that rain on tarmac again. Taste is subtler than aroma. Soft tropical fruit, mild citrous tang and something else like that rain on tarmac thing. Minerally. Nicely balanced and a fine beer.

Cask (gravity) @ Borefts Bier Festival 2011, Brouwerij de Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Unclear light to medium yellow colour with virtually no head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus, lemon, cat piss. Lovely hop aroma ;O) Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20110923]

Benzai (12813) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2011
Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Pale yellow color, no head. Smell fresh, hoppy. Taste fresh, some bitter but pretty low on the hops in my opinion. Decent beer, but nothing special I’d say.

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
