Oh Kernel, how do you do it?
Yet another Pale Ale that’s head and shoulders above just about everything else I’ve drunk over the last few weeks.
This one is packed with everything needed to give a beer geek the tingles.
The frothy head is bubbly and exciting and the smell is a dayglo sweet shop of fruity fun.
The malts are sticky caramel and shortbread, a pinch of brown sugar and a few crusty bread crumbs.
And then there are hops.
Orange rind and mandarin zest, lime juice, apricots and mango, pencil shavings, sherbet and a dab of battery acid.
What else can I say but I’m tingling all over.
