"Kernel PA Simcoe Vs", 5.2%. Bottle(s) from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Slim topped misted ochre. Top juicy citrus pulp, pine, dragon fruit, mint, strawberry all chucked in the blender nose. Soapy, floral, stewed and tropical with that lingering deeply husky kernel thing in the tail. Slippery melon, guava, lavender. Hard to believe it contains alcohol. Just yet another very exceptional Kernel beer in the bottle. thewolf (12703) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2010

Pours light hazy golden with a fine, creamy, white head. Long duration. Aroma has good notes of the Simcoe, light piney, hint of melon and grapefruit. Light oranges. Some malty sweetness. Highish carbonation, lovely creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very lovely. Lots of bitterness, lots of character from the Simcoe. Grapefruit, piney, orange zest, some lemons. Light sweetness in the middle before a long, lingering, hoppy bitterness. Impressive how the hops flavours are so clean compared to eg Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe because that is (afaik) dry-hopped as well as being an IPA... This malts recipe really makes the hops stand out in flavour.
Pours hazy orange with a creamy white head. Aroma and flavour of grapefruit, pine, hops. Nice creamy mouthfeel with at long hoppy aftertaste. viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Keg at Kernel. Awesome, a very accomplished pale ale, perfectly poised and elegant. Bags of flavour, kiwi, grapes, mango, wood and tropical fruit on the nose, a welcome sweetness. Underpinned by a smidgeon of feet/salami skin smell! Not too bitter, but a wonderfully satisfying drawn out finish. Get one asap.

On tap at the BeerTemple. Lightly hazy gold pour with foamy white head. Aroma of nice light simcoe hop, piney and citrusy, light dank. Taste is really grapefruit forward, almost sweet, really tasty, bright and fresh, light bitterness. Palate is light but not watery, nice smooth carbonation, very dry. Great stuff. sebletitje (10178) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2017
Draft @ ML Fontainas.
Dorée, col crémeux beige tenace.
Arôme superbement bien houblonné - très bel effet de pin avec des effluves légères d’agrumes. Malté se note juste en rétro tirant sur le pâle.
Palais rend très bien l’effet de Simcoe avec un petit effet huileux qui s’entrechoque dans les notes de pins et autres agrumes, restant dans un style classique mais superbement bien exploité pour un single hop. Le tout sur une base pâle demeurant agréable et permettant au houblon de bien être mis en avant. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Mario.Scopey (15261) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Clean amber gold with a thin white head. Big biiiig Simcoe. Lots of tangerine and grass and grapefruit. Really jammy feel. Light bitterness but plenty of length. Great stuff.
Keg, Euston Tap. It pours cloudy amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, sticky orange, marmalade, mango, tinned pineapple and some underlying sweetness. The taste is bitter pine, earth, zesty citrus, orange rind, marmalade, faint sherbet and a touch of resin with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice citrus, damn bitter and tasty. A classic kernel pale. mR_fr0g (12875) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle at home. 5.4% on the bottle. Slight hazed pour with a golden orange colour with persistent with white head. Aroma is punchy orange blossom, lemon rind with a crisp chalky edge. Flavour is bready malt, but it clears the way for the hops. Hops are more orange and lemon zest. Assertive clean bitterness. Body is smooth mid body oaty. Finish is slight resin pine. Damn tasty beer.
