Draft @ ML Fontainas. Dorée paille, col épais crémeux blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet de Nelson qui reste assez discret par rapport à ce que j’étais habitué de ce houblon. Léger malté perce en rétro-nasal avec un prononcé herbacé houblonné plus présent. Palais est sec, malt pâle, Marris?, amertume modérée des houblons et du malts, herbacé avec un profil Nelson qui reste, ici aussi, assez en retrait et confère un ajout minime de fruité tropical. Le profil pale ale reste la base de cette bière et un profil axé sur les malts.

On tap at Moeder Lambic. Golden color with small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, peaches, very sweet fruits - fantastic. Taste is balanced fruity, tropical, refreshing. Lovely bitterness. Medium-low carbonation. Very good!

Hazy pale golden creamy white head. Aroma is peach, pineapple, citrus, grapes and grass. Taste is light to medium sweet peach and mango, light soft bitterness, some soap and old sock notes in the finish. Light to medium bodied, creamy texture.

SlackerMads (1828) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, 5,4%. Hazy/unclear orange with a medium sized off white head. Nelson enough. This beer has Nelson coming out of its ass. Sweet tropical fruits; persimmon, lychee. Black berries, and the good kind of petroleum. Sugary malt. Soft, near flat carbonation. Just when it starts to feel a bit thin some bitterness creeps in and brushes the sweetness away leading to a long finish. However it does feel a little flat initially.

JackMandarin (19) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from BeerRitz. Not had a Kernel Pale in ages! Usual high standards. Lovely aroma. Never had a Nelson Sauvin single hop before. Sweet aroma of candied orange and kiwi. Quite unique. Taste is not too bitter with a decent amount of sweetness. Skunky, funky hops. Fruit bomb with a weird, hard-to-put-my-finger-on twist. Chewy mouthfeel. Long lasting bitter finish. Good Kernel pale and an interesting hop.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle, cheers mesandsim. I do love me some Kernel. Pale orange gold with a white head. Stunning aroma, lots of hops, coriander, slight hint of onion, grass and herbs. Massive points for drinkability, love this stuff, love Kernel.

The_Osprey (2380) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
May 2012 - A hoppy pale ale, nothing special and wouldn’t particularly recommend. I only recorded a number rating at the time - so no tasting notes.
