Bottle at Hawksmoor Spitalfields. What can you say? Possibly one of the best Kernel pales yet. Funky as hell and I’ll stick my neck out and say cheesy as hell even if Evin doesn’t get that analogy. Top banana. Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Keg at the brewery - Bermondsey, London. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, foamy white head. Super solid IPA, lots of dank citrus, pee, sticky pine. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sticky, resinous on the finish with lots of juicy citrus. Lovely. Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Keg at Lyric Soho. It pours hazy pale golden with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, hay, orange, grapefruit and sherbet. The taste is crisp, orange rind, tangerine, sherbet, minerals, leaf, light grass and earthy bitterness with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tasty, well-balanced and highly drinkable. Great stuff! RichTheVillan (7852) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
