EdKing (2434) - London, Greater London, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Colour is a beautiful clear deep dark ruby red with an off white medium foam head. Nose is rich, malty, marmalade, pine kernels, caramel, with some tropical fruit pineapple and mango. Taste is ruby bitter, piney, marmalade, caramel, chocolate, tropical fruit. A lot going on in this. Like an American IPA meets a barley wine.

GoddamnNoise (73) - 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 couldnt identify the rye, but it seems like a very good beer.

17/20 malty and hoppy but so well balanced. Has the hops, caramel but also a bitter aftertaste. Great job at 6.2%

kaserov (286) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
6,2%. Color mbar oscuro, tirando a granate, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin mnima. Aroma ctrico, resinoso y algo maltoso si se agita. Sabor ctrico 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 m es una IPA y del montn.

Pours a hazy brown with a medium off white head. Aromas of apricot, caramel, peach, ripe apple, rye bread. Taste is a nice blend between fruitiness and malty backbone. Mouthfeel is quite substantial with moderate carbonation.
