Disappointing, some vague hoppy notes and toiday flavours but nothing is fully asserted and it doesnt really work.

minutemat (5256) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie. Pours deep chestnut brown, small foamy tan head. Aroma of caramel, nutty malts. Smooth, exceptionally well balanced taste bringing forth warming caramel malts, hints of quadrupel-like dark fruits, mild hop bitterness, more caramel. Lovely Brown Ale.

Rhombic (130) - SPAIN - FEB 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with small pale tan head. Aromas are very nice: fruity -grape- but smoothly so, some malt and yeast and minimal hops really. The taste starts fruity but quickly merges into a chocolate, roasted coffee flavour with a somewhat hoppy finish. Very complex and interesting!! Medium body, oily, low to medium carbonation. I quite like it!

jjsint (2922) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle from St Pancras Sourced Market. Mid- to dark brown. Translucent with a tiny bit of beige head and lacing. Light aroma of oak and chestnut with a bit of Nutella. Gorgeous sweet taste,chewy and nutty. A nice earthy hop pervades all the way through but it noticeably present in the long finish. Perfectly judged carbonation. Very tasty although it isnt my favourite Kernel beer.

ianwelby (1328) - SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle, but 6.2%. Clear, dark brown beer with an off-white head. Smells of malt and caramel. Flavour follows suit. Malt, caramel, biscuit, a light fruitiness that carries through into the aftertaste. Surprisingly light and mellow for the strength. A bit too drinkable, perhaps!

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2017
On keg at the Bow Bar. At 6.2%. Appearance - dark brown to black and cloudy. Nose - light nuts and toffee. A bit cold for the style. Praline comes through strongly at the end. Taste - loads of praline again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet sweet texture and a long rich sweet finish. Overall - good brown ale ok.

gegwilson (3645) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Keg in the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Deep brown with a thin cream head. Mild fruity aroma. The taste is nutty with a little chocolate and light spice. Tasty enough, but this is a long way off the Kernels usual standards.
