330ml bottle from The Good Spirits Co. Muddy medium brown, not much head. Biscuit & hop aroma. Sweet fruity hop flavour, smooth with Bitter sweet fruity hoppy aftertaste. Decent but Kernel do better.
Pours dark brown with thin off white head and good lacing.
Aroma is pine, dark caramel, spice, mahogany, lemon, burnt orange and apricot.
Taste has initial sweetness and then a nice medium length bitter finish with good mouthfeel.
Great example of the style. GoddamnNoise (174) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 4, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ Home.
Aroma: not very intense but very good aromas: citrus, floral, grapefruit, fruits, citric fruits, hints of maybe mango and passion fruit, resin.
Appearance: very good appearance. Very deep amber-deep orange color with a huge and above average head thickness. Above average retention. Slightly off-white super creamy head. Low Brussels’ lacing. Quite hazy beer.
Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, low-to-medium sourness. Very well balanced. The sour citric touch is very pleasant. Flavors: floral, citrus, grapefruit with hints of resin, caramel, fruits, grass.
Palate: light-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, low carbonation, very long dry bitter finish of citrus, caramel, grapefruit, floral, grassy, resin, fruits.
Overall: very well balanced beer, very drinkable and pleasant. Excellent appearance and aromas (but not very intense ones). Good flavors and very long dry bitter finish of citrus, floral, resin, grapefruit, grassy and fruity flavors. I couldn’t identify the rye, but it seems like a very good beer. rob19a (431) - - NOV 20, 2016
17/20 malty and hoppy but so well balanced. Has the hops, caramel but also a bitter aftertaste. Great job at 6.2% melush (4414) - SPAIN - NOV 17, 2016
@ La Linterna Ciega, Seville, Spain.
A: Hazy amber.
T: Hops, rye, citrus, resin, malt. kaserov (922) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
6,2%. Color ámbar oscuro, tirando a granate, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma cítrico, resinoso y algo maltoso si se agita. Sabor cítrico con bastante amargor, herbal, algo resinoso... La verdad es que me cuesta encontrar el centeno, la malta... Primera cerveza de The Kernel que me deja a medias. Para mí es una IPA y del montón.
