Yet another reason, if one were needed, to love The Kernel.
The aroma of this pale ale is fresh and juicy, full of kiwi fruit and peaches.
I love the zippy freshness Evin manages to cram into all his beers and this is no exception with a big blast of vanilla pod spiked grapefruit and mandarin, lemon peel and just picked bouquet garni.
There’s a very nice woodiness too, dry and brittle it’s like a big beery bench on which the soft toffee and shortbread of the malts are laid out.
The finish is tangy, bitter, dry and lingering.
I’m starting to wonder if we ever need bother reviewing any more Kernel beers.
Or do we do it in the vane hope of finding a bad one to write about?
