One of my all time favorites. I am a sucker for Amarillo hops and at this abv, you can really drink these for a while. Very refreshing

3.5/5  rDev -11.8%

Bottled on 14/08/2014, two and a half months ago. Only 3.1%. Brewed with Amarillo & Citra.

A: Orangey straw body with a small whitish head.
S: Tropical fruit.
T: Dry but plenty of tropical fruit. It's bitter and has a salty Alka-Seltzer feel. Also has an off flavour like that creamy flavour you get from rotting onions. Better with the yeast dumped in. Gets much earthier. Chugging the dregs it turns into grapefruit juice.
M: Soft mouthfeel. Not overly fizzy.
O: Like Alka-Seltzer mixed with a bit of tropical squash. Not the best offering from Kernel.

On tap at the brewery, Bermondsey, London.
Pale gold with snowy head that fades but leaves nice crust.
Straight mashed mango nose.
Some white pan then mad straight mango with touches of resin and grapefruit.
Tart finish and tingly linger.
Light, crisp, some creaminess.

Oats and Carapils, single Mosaic

Just packed with fruit. Uncomplicated, but doesn’t need more. Super quenching. At this strength, kinda blows up the whole Session IPA thing.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

On-tap at Draft House in London. My version was 3.1% ABV.

Pours a hazed, burnished golden colour, a fine but slightly filmy head of white. Proper English-style lacing. Fairly fine streaming carbonation through the very light body. Looks pretty good.

The nose is tops. Big citra-fresh characters bright, sharp and piercing. Mandarin comes through well, with some sweet, subtle orange notes and rounded hop characters giving a lot of breadth. It's big, aromatic and refreshing—certainly better than I expected.

Taste is light—at this weight it probably can't be otherwise. Plenty of good characters to it. Fragrant citrus, pithy but sweet with zesty lemonade notes. A bit of soda, very little malt character. Pretty clean and pleasant all up. Feel is very light, which isn't surprising.

This is very, very drinkable and very sessionable indeed. Perhaps the carbonation is a little too high—a smoother version would perhaps be excessively drinkable and addictive. It's maybe a good thing that it's not.

500ml bottle, 2.9%abv. Slightly cloudy light amber/gold appearance. Long-lasting pillowey thick head. Smell: intense citrus as with most Kernel beers. Taste: tropical citrus fruit. Medium sweetness with some dryness. Mouthfeel: lengthy with lengthy fruity citrus taste. Overall: Impressive low-gravity beer. I would prefer to drink this in quantity, than similar stronger beers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500ml bottle, bottled 10/17/13, into a juice glass, sadly all that's available in my hotel room. Note: this batch is labeled 2.9% abv
A: Dark yellow with a hint of orange, a bit hazy, 1/2-finger head that quickly dissipates
S: The citra hops are clear as day. Tons of grapefruit, a hint of fresh pine needles & tropical fruits
T: The review by this one by jazzyjeff nails everything I'm tasting. Incredibly complex given the low alcohol
M: Light-bodied, light carbonation but nice crispness
O: I really wish this were imported or someone in the states made a session beer that had this low abv that packed this much flavor. Truly an outstanding beer.
