Kernel don’t make wheat beer for Boy Scouts. This is a man-size 500ml bottle and weighs in at 5.2%. It poured with good carbonation to form a hazy golden hue with a large white head. The aroma was strong citrus hops-lemon, grapefruit etc with a little freshly cut grass for good measure.
Taste wise, it was medium bodied with plenty of initial bitterness. There are lots of citrus flavours: orange, lemon and grapefruit, but also grass and, once the bitterness subsides, a touch of wheat. The finish is mainly dry with a little sweetness right at the death.
This is a strange one. It’s not like any wheat beer I’ve had before. In fact, it’s not really a wheat beer at all as it lacks sufficient, erm, wheat to be classed as such. It’s actually more of an American Pale Ale. However, I liked it and, served chilled, it would be quite refreshing.
