Bottle sourced from Art & Craft SW16, Streatham, London - shared with the family (11/03/2017) - golden coloured pour with white head. Fruity and malty with citrus satsuma and lemon notes, clean fruity and light malty base, straw, light piney and floral hoppy into the finish.

A second bottle because the first was lacking carbonation and was quite appley. This bottle in much better nick. Light haze on this gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and fairly crisp. Light malts, mildly sweet. Hops bring mild pine, modest citrus fruits and a touch of citric peel. Light candy fruit and tropical fruits. Light smooth semi dry finish brings a little lemon peel. Nice showcase for this hop.

Theydon_Bois (21814) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle at home, 18/03/17. Lightly gazed amber pour with a well appointed off White head that retains well. Nose is bitter orange, caramel, toasted bread, melon, light perfume. Taste comprises tangerine, melon, toasted brioche, light spice, cheesecake base, grapefruit tingle. Medium bodied, fine massaging ccarbonation, dryish close sprinkled with hop bitterness. Decent well balanced easy drinking APA.

mR_fr0g (14242) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Bottle at home picked up from the brewery. A light hazed golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is initially a little grassy hop and caramel but this died down to reveal some some delicate fruits, blackberry and pear and soft doughy malts. Flavour is composed of soft bready malts with a rustic edge, mellow stone stone and berries, little woody, apricot . Firm grassy woody bitterness. Palate is grainy, soft malts, moderate carbonation. Nice delicate flavours.

harrisoni (19700) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Bottle from the brewery and drunk at home. Hazy dark gold dirty brown colour, lasting beige head. I love this pale ale. Sherbet citrus. A little earth in the mouth. Then just pure fruit juice. Lovely mouth feel. Some light grapefruit, some lemon. The finish goes on and on and I love the mouth feel. Just a delight of yellow grapefruit and light lemon.

3.5
Scopey (16528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle picked up at the brewery. It pours hazy orange - amber with a thick white head. The aroma is quite soft, bready, toasty grain, biscuit, cereal, stone fruit, pineapple and nectarine. The taste is initially dry, bitter, toasty grain, cereal, earth, bread, apricot, nectarine, pithy citrus, lime rind and light citric acidity with a drying finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not quite as expressive as some other Kernel pales. Decent enough nonetheless.

Leighton (23090) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - thanks to Fergus for hooking a brother up. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has dry citrus rind in the nose, a little dirty hay, pine needles, crispy pale malts. Light sweet flavour with a nip of flinty minerality, some grassy bitterness, more dry and crispy pale bread, lemon rind, tangerine. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Pretty clean in the finish, with notes of dried pale malts, some husky grain, more lemon rind, pithy tangerine, a little piney bitterness. Interesting stuff. More understated than most Kernel hoppy beers. Also perhaps a little more bitter. Not bad overall.

3.9
planky84 (3591) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Keg at the Pelt Trader, Cannon Street. Amber/gold pour with a white head. Nose of citrus, pineapple, mango. Flavours of tangerine, lime, grapefruit, apricot. Long citrus linger on the palate. Very tasty.
