Pours a hazy straw with nice creamy head and lacing. Nose full on simcoe. Typical Kernel. Taste is fruity , light malt backbone, a bit watery compared to most kernel. The more I drink, the more I'm missing a little more body. Still super drinkable...almost chug able. Overall very good in part, but missing a piece.

500ml bottle bought online from Beermerchants.com

Poured a golden copper colour with a slight haze. White head with coppery hints poured big thick and foamy with a meringue like topping then faded slowly to good covering with thick edging... barely any carbonation bubbles... lots of sticky lacing...

Aroma - Lots of juicy mouth watering (slightly tropical ?) fruitiness (pears, grapefruits, oranges, magnoes), light sweet caramel malts, buttery, some bready notes, honey, citrus and grassy hops, light pine, quite floral, talcum powder traces, faint rubbery notes, some tobacco...

Taste is pretty similar to the aroma... slighty tropical tart fruits (grapefruits oranges, limes), good peppery and citrus hop bitterness balanced by caramel sweetness, chalky traces, light metallic notes, quite biscuity...

M&D - Smooth initially with a little sharpness underneath... medium bodied... an extremely quaffable brew...

Overall - An outstanding Pale Ale... one of the best i've had. If this was readily available i would always have it in my cupboard... highly recommended...
