3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 25/01/14. A light golden coloured beer with a white head. Tropical fruits in the mouth. Verging on delicate for The Kernel. Good balancing pale malts. Nice bitterness. Tasty. A late sting. The aroma is on the sharp side. Nice of course.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is quite citrusy, with some kind of fruityness I don’t recognize. Sort of a blend between lemon and orange, but still not that. Some maltyness in the back. It’s full to medium bodied, with a nice carbonation level. Quite dry, but there’s some sweetness still. Bitter, orange-peel flavor with a little maltyness in the back. Easy drinkable and quite interesting, but a tad boring I think. 131214

Che bella birrettina, forse bevuta un pò troppo fredda, ma mi ha soddisfatto, delicata e molto beverina. La mi moglie me l’ha finita...
