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.

Leighton (18744) - 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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
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.
