3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 500ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Cloudy orange with white head, despite a very careful pour. A combination of New Zealand hops, presumably the orange sweet marmalade notes coming from the Pacifica, and maybe the malt. Hints of bittering from the Waimea, not too pronounced. A slightly disappointing offering from Kernel given others I have tried recently.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from SH Jones, Banbury, Thursday 9th January 2014 consumed Friday 10th January around Lynn & Barrys Egg yolk colour with white head. Hoppy but also sweet, curly with a little tropical fruitiness. Nice but perhaps would have preferred a little less sweetness and a bit more bitterness and hoppy complexity.
