Bottle at home picked up at the brewery and drank at home. Aroma is clean grassy hop, faint citrus, vanilla, Translucent golden / light orange coloured pour with a lasting steady off white head. Flavour is grainy base malts, , tangy orange peel, grassy, and a tiny hint of smokey nelson sauvin character. A little bit of lace on the glass. Palate is medium light, moderate carbonation. Mellow grassy bitterness. Very pleasent drinking pale.

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.

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.

Palme (3606) - 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

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.

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.

tommann (2921) - 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.

EdKing (2010) - 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.

[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]
