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.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 A Mes rate. Bottle at the Kernel.
New version apparently. I knew this would be good. I wasn’t wrong. Standard quality Kernel deep dark gold looks with a thin but stable white head. Superb Nelson Sauvin fruity stuff all round but nothing like as much of the slight amonia quality you usually get from this hop. Grassy, kiwi fruit, some faint lime and an excellent sprinkling of herbs. Really good dry mouthfeel and morish drinkability. Lovely.

Cask at CPK. Pours hazy gold with a light, foamy head. Nice grass and piss aroma. Great balance in the flavor. More pee bitters, light earthiness, caramel sweetness. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Balanced finish, moderate grass, cat pee, light grapefruit, slight earth. Just great. This beer drank itself.

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.

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.

EdKing (2133) - 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.

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 :-)
