4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Kinda muddy-looking yellow beer with a very small white head. I guess I got the bottom of the bottle! Very hoppy aroma with loads of citrus-fruity and some herbal notes. Fresh-fruity sweet and bitter, very delicious and easy drinkable. Oily texture, medium body.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home, 2nd September 2012. Beautiful piney hop aroma on cracking. Pours perfectly clear, flavour is melon, citrus pine needles, oily mouth feel. Best of the Kernel Pale Ales, I have tried and that is saying something.
