This was dissapointing. Potentially an old bottle but zero aroma and just a huge whack of resiny bitterness. In the end not super nice

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.

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.

Aniela (2304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2013
Draught at Kernel Brewery, London dec 2012. Yellow hazy beer with an creamy offwhite head. Hoppy, passionfruit, tropical fruits, sweet orangese aroma. Smiliar flavour with some bitterness. Really a nice beer :-)

jmgreenuk (4004) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle from Cotterige Wines, Birmingham. Poured a cloudy yellow with a broken white head. The aroma is big floral fruity and caramel. The flavour is bitter grassy and floral. Typical Nelson Saivin. A superb pale ale and great value for money.

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
50cl bottle beermerchants.com. Lovely clear burnt gold appearance. Loads of grapefruit, giving subtle, soft bitterness. Some peaches and cream balance it out but the finish is long, bitter and satisfying.

Bottle @ Pitt cue co. Pours hazy straw yellow wit a very small head. Aroma is loads of mango, Passionfruit , sweet citrussy fruitiness, peach, and pineapple, lovely aroma, some slight yeasty notes as well. Taste follows the nose but with a hit grassy resiny notes as well. Really refreshing!

EdKing (1788) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Colour is cloudy orange, big foaming white head. Nose is that great earthy rain on tarmac Nelson Sauvin, but also lots of soft tropical fruit. loads of citrous lemon and grapefruit, minerally and pine. Taste is big hit of citrous lemon and grapefruit, soft tropical fruits and the earthy rain on tarmac nelson hops. It;s been a while since I’ve had a big moment on a Kernel pale ale, but this is the one. Lovely beer.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Purchase at the Brewery and drank at home in Jan ’12@ 5.4% ABV. Pours a murky orange colour, you can’t see your fingers even if you wiggle them on the other side of the glass !!! Small white head throughout drinking. Fantastic aroma, Nelson Sauvin hops, pine, hops, pine - it’s all in the nose on this beer! Some tropical fruits in the flavour, maybe mango, slight grapefruit taste. definite taste of wood and slight spicing. Sour to bitter in the aftertaste, dryish finish. Medium bodied beer, little carbonation.

tommann (2600) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2012
500ml bottle at 5.5%. Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a small head. Aroma is subtle, lime and mango. Taste is a little bland, some watery lime to start and mango in the light, bitter finish.
