This beer was fermented in foeder (5000 litre wooden barrel) for 8 weeks and then then lagered and carbonated in tank for 8 weeks. Hopped and dry hopped with Goldings.
The fermentation in wood seems to give a lovely roundness to the beer - this is full and creamy in texture. The flavours coming through are remarkably clear in the manner of a classic lager, with the Goldings bringing lemon pith, hay, sunshine into play. A touch of honeyed sweetness, enough bitterness to balance
Kernel brewery springs from their need to have more good beer. Beer deserving of a certain attention. Beer that forces you to confront and consider what you are drinking. Upfront hops, lingering bitternesses, warming alcohols, bodies of malt. Lengths and depths of flavour. Kernel makes Pale Ales, India Pale Ales and old school London Porters and Stouts towards these ends. Bottled alive, to give them time to grow.
