Bottle from Kernel Brewery Dec 2011, consumed at brothers, Dumbleton, Worcs, 13.01.12 Pours hazy yellow to gold, quite murky in fact. Soft but then an assured bitterness showing. Quite peppery in the mouth, in fact very peppery, with hoppy run across the gums, touch of light spiciness. Good beer. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle at the Kernel Brewery. It pours cloudy light orange, with a massive white head. The nose is tangerine, grass, wood and mozzarella. The taste is yeast, citrus pith, grapefruit, leather, spice, wood, hay, grass and creamy mozzarella, with a big dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good for sure, but not my favourite hop combo from the Kernel Crew.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours the usual hazy gold with a medium creamy white head. The aroma is gloriously inviting. Tons of fresh pineapple, grapefruit and bubblegum. Flavor follows up well. Light to medium sweet with a dry, woody bitterness, some citrus rind, zesty lemon and grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Quite dry on the finish with some pale malts, wood, grass, toasted straw, pithy citrus. The carbonation is actually quite mouth-filling now. A dry, grassy bitterness with subtle pine lingers on the tongue. An excellent beer overall.

Very hazy orange - gold beer. Decent white head. Palate is silky smooth and semi dry. Fine carbonation. A small amount of creamy malt. The hops provide fresh orange and lemon - not too aggressive. More smooth creamy malt and then grapefruit bitterness through the semi dry finish and beyond. A very nice pale ale as always from the Kernel. Very drinkable and with great flavoursome hops that don’t bite your head off.
