BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2011
[500ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Gold pour, thin white head, but not much. Bitter on the nose – very bitter. Some fruit there as well. Slightly sharp. Quite one dimensional on the taste – the bitterness from the hops really dominates everything else, there’s no sweet component to give that balanced aftertaste. This could be the first Kernel beer I don’t actually like – stop the clocks [19082011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit and light barley. Similar flavours. A little foamy mouth-feel with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle. Too carbonated for my liking.
