Hazy gold - amber beer, good off white head. Smooth semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Mild starfruit, mild grapefruit and mellow tangerine - orange with a trace of lemon. A little creamy malt underneath. Semi dry finish. Well joined up, comparatively, for Kernel, mellow pale ale.

Leighton (20814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - picked up at the brewery. Pours clear, bright gold with a fine, creamy head. Lovely, light dry orange in the nose, hints of pine needles and grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with lightly sticky, piney bitterness, lots of tangerine and orange, strong piney and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly resinous to finish, some faintly toasted pale malts, lightly tangy tangerine, orange rind, a bit of grapefruit. Great APA. Lots of depth but still super quaffable.

Tap at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, 10/04/13 @ 5.4% badged as Centennial Simcoe. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that clears to a film. Nose is orange pith, hops, pine, light grapefruit, citrus notes. Taste comprises sweet mango, bitter grapefruit, orange, hops, pine, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitterness in the the finish. Decent but not my favourite Kernel APA.

Bottle, named Centennial Simcoe, 5.2 percent. Bottled on June 24 2014. Hoppy citrus and pine aroma, grass, grapes, floral, some mango and peach. Hoppy pine flavor, earthy, hay, grassy, floral, passion fruit, some mango. Quite complex and drinkable.

33cl bottle from Kernel Brewery. Well my bottle says Centennial Simcoe but the ABV is the same so Im not going to argue. Careful with the pouring so it comes out clearish orange gold typical of this style of beer from Kernel. Thin white head. Beautiful aroma. Not surprised I like it, it has 2 of my all time fav hops. Simcoe especially. Grapefruit, peach, apricot and satsuma. Great aroma. The flavour is sublime. One of the best pale ales from Kernel in many moons. Full. Some PAs dont have that fullness of flavour or intensity. This one does in bundles. OMG. Its great. Subtle bitterness on end. Its so jammy in the fruit. Like grapefruit and satsuma marmalade. That is remarkable. Give it a touch more bitterness and Id be giving this a 4.8. As it is, its just adorable. Once again Kernel makes my life a happier place to be.

Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Thanks, Colin. Hazed golden beer with some white foam. Starts off with a bready and toasty malt aroma. Theres a lot of peach, pineapple, and orange hop aromas. A touch of lime zest, too. Slight grass and pine bitterness to the flavor. Some juicy grapefruit to go with it all. Kind of a citric acidity to it that works nicely. Nice beer.

Scopey (14257) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Keg. A big dirty free pint of it at the Lyric, Soho. It pours hazy gold with a thick white, foamy head. The nose is soft, juicy, fruity, orange, tangerine, Five Alive fruit juice and lime sorbet. The taste is crisp, bitter, creamy, lime, lemon sherbet, juicy tangerine, pithy orange, minerals, lemongrass, cream soda and straw with a dry, citrussy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very well rounded and gloriously drinkable. Whats not to like?
