Idiosynkrasie (5549) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with small to average, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Citrusy and slightly piney hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit. Taste is bitter and citrusy hoppy, biscuity malt basis. Dry and minimally grassy and mineral finish, slightly watery. A bit anaemic for Kernel standards.

tom10101 (4516) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Tap @ Craft Beer Co. Brixton (Greater London). Hazy golden/blond with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrusy with malt and light cat piss notes. Taste is also citrus with a decent malt backbone and hints of soap. Light/medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Mild and drinkable, but a tad bland. Probably my “worst” The Kernel Pale Ale so far.

McNeillR (2023) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Dull and cloudy golden, decent lacing white head. Blistering bitterness, fuzzy and stops short of being overpowering. Taught, fibrey tropical fruit meatiness and an ethereal sun warmed cut grapefruit lift throughout. Pine and suctionless malt boost to the middle - smooth tang to the overall mouthfeel. Creamy and still towards the finish, soft dry curtain call on a rich APA.

Bottle, Cornelius, Edinburgh

Doft: grape, citrus. Smak: snäll grape ton som fyller munnen med frukt smak. Eftersmak av lagom bitter grape. En trevlig öl.
