DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2012
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.

In bottle. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Resinous aroma of fresh cut hops with pine, passion fruit, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with a chewy mouth-feel. Mild carbonation. Very nice.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2012
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

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
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.

tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a very hazy orange with a thin head. Aroma is earthy, woody with a touch of lemon and lime. Taste is a little earthy to start. Medium bitter finish. Getting the lime jelly.

Amber blonde with bubbly white head. Pink grapefruit on the nose. Kiwi and grapefruit taste.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2011
[500ml bottle, Drinkmonger, Edinburgh] Hazy golden pour with a decent white head. Citrus aromas predominate – mostly orange and lemon. Very drinkable with the same fruity citrus palate, quite crisp on the finish as the fruit gets a bit sharper. Having said that, there’s some sticky sweetness in there at the same time – although not as much as the fruit. Great beer [12112011]

EdKing (1756) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Pours light cloudy orange. Not as murky as the IPAs. Nose is musky farmyard, grapefruit citrous. Taste is really nice and light. No pine resin. Citrousy and not too bitter. Maybe a bit of grapefruit, lemon etc, and finish is light and crisp citrous.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 pours a cloudy orange/amber. with a thin head that recedes quickly. lovely aroma, very fruity, moslty orange and lemon. a little sticky in the mouth, which complements the piney and limey notes. really clean and refreshing.
