Scopey (8246) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle at the 2nd East Croydon Beer Tasting, thanks to Nate Dawg. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a decent foamy white head. The nose is pine, tangerine, clementine and mango. The taste is tangerine, orange pith, apricot, clementine, light spice and pine, with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and good balance. Yet another good easy drinking APA from Kernel!

Niall73 (2143) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Stunning aroma - sweet and juicy with lots of candy, tangerine, pineapple, a hint of coconut. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Toast, orange, lemon, light grapefruit, light apricot... It's tasty but the aroma sets it up for something slightly better than it is. Tasty though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/III/15 - on tap @ ACBF 2015 (Vichte) - BB: n/a (2015-319) Thanks to all for sharing today’s beers!

Clear pale milky yellow beer, irregular creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: lemony, bit soapy, like dish wash soap with lemon aroma, floral, little herbal. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very soapy, citrus, floral, notes, bit funky. Aftertaste: little bitter, citrus, funky touch, grapes, bit weird. Not bad, but weird.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle from an offie in Coventry- not telling you which one in case you head down there and sweep the shelves of MY Kernels. Weizen looks; clouded orange with a tight white foam. Heavily Jelly Tot and mango-accented aroma; earthy, unripe mango flavour with hints of grapefruit and chaffy malt. Full, slippery condition carrying the alcohol well. Soft, soapy bitterness. Good brew, but a bit watery and one-dimensional from The Kernel. Could use another hop as back up.
