3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle from the brewery. Hazy paleish orange gold with lasting thin white head. Lime jelly on the aroma. Touch of tangerine. Touch of woody earthyness. Cascades are earthy and so is this but light earthyness. Robertson’s lime jelly on the flavour too. Some bitterness on the finish. OK, so not a big in your face beer and I have a feeling people may rate this not as high as others, but there are some subtle high notes on this that are really quite attractive. Almost ethereal. Different and interestingly drinkable and that lime edge is really quite attractive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Kernel Brewery, Bermondsey, London, 03.12.11 Pours very milky colour almost looks like banana juice or a banana milkshake, however the unusual looks are nothing to be concerned about as it tastes and smells very good. Tangy and fruity with some orange showing and as Ian suggests it has a dirtiness about it which is appealing.Tropical aromas on the nose complete the picture. A7 A2 T8 P4 Ov15 3.5

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle shipped by cgarvieuk and shared by bsuedekum- thanks, guys! Best by 03 August 2012. Pours a cloudy, bright yellow-orange color with a finger of eggshell white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, sweet and bready malts, crackers, and some tropical fruits, although all the fruit in it may be fading a bit. Flavor of citrus peel, dry grains, grass, pineapple, and a mineral note. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel that is fruity throughout. Nice APA; I’m interested to try the hundred other APAs and IPAs from The Kernel.
