Bottle from Beermerchants.com.Pours light hazy golden with a big spongy/creamy white head. Aroma is hop deliciuos de luxe, piney and grassy with some fruity sweet aromas as well. Taste is clean, medium sweet with strong piney hops and citrus. Good carbonation helps lift the hops to the front seat, very crisp and moresih, perfectly balanced. Ends light sticky with flowers and grapefruit. Another one hitting the spot from Kernel

Bottle. Orange cloudy appearance which wasn’t very inviting. Once sipping started things got better. Hoppy with a citrus flavour that soons aserts itself.Better than first impressions had first suggested.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Euston Tap, via Gurd. Smells pretty muted, but the piney hop notes are there. Just as they are in the taste, but it’s rather a fleeting hop buzz, epilogued by a clean, fizzy finish. Better when poured with a substantial bit of the sediment:- more smooth, tangy and flavoursome. Good, but middling for Kernel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5l bottle from beermerchants.com It pours a golden cloudy body with a small almost bubbly just off-white head. On the aroma I get lots of piny hops - almost like smelling a pine busk actually, annd there is also some nice sweet tropical peachy tones here as well. Quite enjoyable for a pale ale, and and overall really nice! Well, if the aroma was nice, the flavor is even better. Much the same as the aroma with hoppy peachy, light mild citrus, some apricots, pineapple and piny tones perfectly mixed in a smooth blender. My god this is easy, smooth and light drinkable. Imagine to have this as a 6pack in the store! Must admit this one disappeared so quickly that I hardly had time rating it. Want a new one! NOW! 17.03.2012

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I got the bottom of the bottle, again, so this one looks like... puke. Guess it’s orange with a white head. Grapefruity, peachy aroma - very delicious. Taste is drier than expected, fruity hoppy, medium bitter, a little herbal on the finish. Some licorice, too.
