The Kernel Brewery Part 5: India Pale Ale Nelson Sauvin

January 9, 2013

At 7.4 per cent abv, bottled on 19.11.12 best before 19.3.13. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit juice, mango, those freshly-squeezed fruit coctail juices. Like being at the breakfast table in the tropics. The most aroma so far. The taste is more of the same, and then some extra grapefruit juice poured on top. Soft and round mouthfeel, the least bitter beer so far unless it’s hidden in all that balanced tropical freshness. I’m now done with all the pale beers of the bunch and this was the least beery and the softest – also “the best” – and gives a whole new meaning to that age-old lovely concept of “breakfast beer”. No wonder the Malt Miller was out of stock Nelson Sauvin hops, I was ready to blow my weekly allowance…
