DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
"Kernel PA Simcoe Vs", 5.2%. Bottle(s) from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Slim topped misted ochre. Top juicy citrus pulp, pine, dragon fruit, mint, strawberry all chucked in the blender nose. Soapy, floral, stewed and tropical with that lingering deeply husky kernel thing in the tail. Slippery melon, guava, lavender. Hard to believe it contains alcohol. Just yet another very exceptional Kernel beer in the bottle.

Garrold (1113) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, sticky, lasting, white head. Huge, fresh, Simcoe hop leaf aroma. Very peachy, juicy and sweet, pine resin character. Taste is minty sweet, first off. Then pretty dry and bitter. Fresh, lightly oily palate. Dryness and bitterness last on the finish. Very quaffable.
