Pale ale citra

A: super cloudy golden orange 4.75

S: subtle citrus and lemon. Very citra esque

T: subtle tropical floral notes fade into a an earthy hop bitterness. Citric and herbal hop notes abound, combined with a smooth crispy malt backbone create a light refreshing hoppy brew.

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation and medium body 4.5

Overall: very smooth balanced pale ale, a lot of earthy bitterness but not as good ad the Kernels other offerings, could benefit from more hop offerings as their Galaxy id one of the best hoppy beers i've ever had.

330ml Bottle: taken inside Shrewsbury Market Hall at a French Crepe outlet on 19th Oct 2013.

Pours a slightly hazy orange/yellow with a thin white covering.

As the name suggests, this is dominated by citrus notes throughout. Delicate but persistent in nature within both the aroma and taste. Mild malts below the surface give the beer a more balanced feel after the initial grapefruit and lemon esters hit.

Still not sure why so many people love this breweries beers: this was OK, nothing more.
