4.5/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy appearance. Marmalade colour. Good head and lacing. Aroma is of citrus and grapefruit. The taste is bitter and citrusy. Grapefruit is noticeable. There is a tinge of candied fruit underlying the dominant bitterness.

Overall, a very tasty Pale Ale that could easily be described as an IPA as it is very hoppy. Kernel Pale Ales of different hop varieties have a consistent house style that is pretty darn good and very hoppy for an English Ale.

My mark out of 100 would be 93.

330cl bottle poured into a highball glass. The aroma is a blend of citrus, lemon, grapefruit, bread crust, and grass. It's a murky amber orange color with a mild, dense white head that has a mild retention and lace. The taste is a balanced, medium bittersweet. The medium bodied beer is oily in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit and herb stand out on the palate with a finish that's mildly spicy and clean leaving only a trace of an aftertaste.
