The 100 Word Breakfast Beer Tasting: Kernel Pale Ale Bravo Apollo

Basics: It’s 500ml, 5.5%, and bottle-conditioned. It poured amber with good carbonation and a large off-white head. Aroma was pine and grapefruit.

Taste: Medium bodied and soft on the palate. There’s a very enticing cluster of citrus hops: orange and grapefruit, in particular, that give it a dry edge without going overboard with bitterness levels. This in turn means it drinks well under its strength and is very moreish.

Finish: A medium level of lingering dryness.

Conclusion: No surprises here. Yet another winner from Kernel. A very tasty and accomplished beer. You could easily have two or more at breakfast...
