MrTipple (4803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Aroma: grapefruit, lemons, straw, pale grains. Appearance: hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light biters continue, grain malts, bitter citrus fruits, some passion fruit, dry, bitter finish. Overall: decent APA, maybe not quite my Kernel favourite, lacks some complexity. Bottle from beermerchants.com, Larkfield.

jamestulloch (4063) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a thick white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma is very ’bright’ - notes of lemon zest, peach sherbet, sweet malt and a squeeze of lime. Flavour of lemongrass, passionfruit and melon rind. Medium body with a creamy, cask-like texture. Soft fizz. It’s easy to take these delicious Kernel beers for granted, such is their consistency of excellence. No gimmicks, just top quality, flavoursome ales.

The_Osprey (7883) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle share at Chriso’s, 5.3% bottled 21/07/15. Hazy yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is lime, passionfruit, straw. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is light, quite watery, celery, mint with a soft bitterness. Smooth, ’green’ flavour. Decent.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle, Rehills Newcastle. A little low in aroma, light yeast is about all there is, however some creamy peach comes in with a bit of swirling later on. Initially dry and papery, some slightly tart lemon flavour creeps in & a bit of bready yeast. Lovely dusty pale gold colour, good sticky sediment to give a clean pour, unfortunately it lacks the usual Kernel high standards.

mR_fr0g (11913) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle at home picked up from the brewery a week or two ago. Another Kernel Catch up rake. A translucent pale golden coloured pour with a lasting frothy white head. Aroma is sharp citrus, lemon zest, some mango fruit hops, grainy white bread and a little straw. A little alcohol note on the nose. Flavour is composed of grainy malts, grassy lemon citrus, peach and mango tropical fruits. A littl harsh hop bitterness bitein the finish with a little solvent note. Palate is medium light bodied,highish carbonation, semi-dry finish. ok, but not classic kernel.

3.8
gunnar (9019) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from Beermerchants.Pours hazy golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of fruity malts, with lots of peach and grapefruit hops. Taste is moderate bitter/sweeet, good dry hoppy citrus finish, nice and clean apa.
