AdiBeer (1760) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Aroma: grain malts, straw, fruity, some yeast. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters linger on, not too intense, some malty sweets in the background, some floral aromas, light dry in the finish. Overall: surprisingly malty aroma, not really your typical Kernel APA. Pint at the brewery, Bermondsey.

On tap at Craft Clerkenwell. Cloudy pale gold lasting white head. Some lime some citrus some creaminess. Aroma may not be the best but in terms of drinkability its amazing. Super.

Darft sample @ ACBF 2015. Que du bonheur dans ce verre. Dorée légèrement trouble, col blanc. Arôme est juste fabuleux et je prends un plaisir non dissimulé à humé ce houblon qui laisse s’échapper de superbes effluves d’agrumes. Palais est également tout bonnement divin. Léger à en boire des lires. Hop goodness, le tout est sec, avec pas mal d’agrumes rappelant le pomello italien le tout sur une légère note épicée houblonnée. L’amertume reste modérée et douce. Simple, efficace, que du bonheur, surtout pour un single hop.

Sampled draft @ ACBF 2015. Hazy golden, little white. Nose is huge fresh onion & garlic hops. Taste is very fresh fruity onion hops, zest, garlic, some Kernel yeast in the back. Body is light Kernel yeast. Pretty awesome. (Thanks for sharing people!!!)

Hazy darker yellow, a 1 finger head. Aroma is light, some grape skins, blanch wine, Taste is more interesting. brewers are really letting the hop profile show. Light, aromatic, soft. Wish I like jade hops more.

Tap at ACBF. Liquid lemon juice, this is fenomenal, so fruity, would drink over and over.

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
50cl bottle from the Brewery. It pours a clear golden orange colour with a medium soapy white head. Aroma is grassy, flowery and resiny. Taste is moderately bitter with grass, violets and pine needles. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, a very nice and hoppy pale ale.

CraftBeerNick (1101) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle at home, 5th February 2012. Pours clear, not much head, aroma is nice, nothing much to speak of. Taste is a little watery, but pleasant, I have tried over 20 of the Kernel beers, this one was one that was disappointing by their standards, but nice.

wyzzywyz22 (2061) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wines, Brockley. Murky golden pour with a mid sized off white head. Piney hop and zesty citrus evident in the nose. Plenty more fruity character in the flavour, and a slightly less prominent hop profile than anticipated. Dry bitter finish. Tasty and downable but perhaps a little underwhelming by the Kernel’s exceedingly high standards.
