jamestulloch (4521) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy orange/amber body with tiny yeast flecks floating beneath a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of peach and dried mango. Flavour of mint, peach and grass. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Pleasant but lacking body and hoppy punch.

Bottle from the brewery in Bermondsey and drunk at home. Hazy gold amber colour lasting white head. Some tropical fruit up front. Then some lemon and grapefruit. A little mango and passionfruit on the aroma. Again enormousy drinkable. The fruit is outrageous. Faultless. How can I score such a beautiful beer? Light bitterness on the finish but more bitter than most Kernel Pale Ales. I loved it. I can’t compete with other descriptions, all I can do is that this beer made me happy. It was exactly what I want. it’s beautiful. Can I have another please Sir? The_Osprey (10000) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2017
March 2017 - 330ml bottle at home in Richmond watching France U20 v Wales U20 as ’The Kernel Pale Ale Citra Mosaic Simcoe’. 5/5%, 3 months old. Pale amber orange, still, translucent, foamy off-white head leaves nice lacing. Aroma has some parma violet, some wet paper, some dead flowers. Not particularly inspiring here. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is more vibrant than the aroma with lots of floral hops, astringent and breathy hops, citrus peel with a drying finish, clean and crisp. Quite enjoyable overall. A good APA. tderoeck (11110) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2017

Note: just checking to make sure it’s not my taste buds or anything. Nope, this one had no diacetyl. :p
Clear pale blond to orange beer, small aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lovely smell, tropical fruits, citrus, zesty, hint of sulphur though. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits, bitter hops. Aftertaste: citrus, bit zesty, grassy, hoppy, fruity touch, grapefruit, nice bitter finish. Decent, not super though...
