The Kernel making a Pale Ale without the word India in front of it?
Is that right?
Isn’t there a law against this sort of thing?
What Nugget actually is is a Pale Ale like most breweries make IPA.
It sits lovely and golden in my glass with a soft head of foam and smells of Refreshers and other childhood delights.
The malts are all gooey toffee and slightly soft biscuits like when you leave a packet of your favourites open by accident for a couple of days.
Nugget seems to be a very light and, dare I say it, tame hop for The Kernel.
It has a black pepper spikiness and a good measure of satsuma juice and melon flesh, along with a feint resin edge and a very nice sapling wood freshness.
Right at the end the finish goes ultra dry, something of a trademark for this brewery in my eyes, and something that I love.
So there we have it, another brilliant beer form The Kernel.
