MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Harp.
Clean gold with a short lived white head and some lace. Quite a straight forward and innocent brew. Presume it’s called what it is as they keep the hops in their pocket rather than putting them in the brew. Some grass and citrus, faint biscuity malt and rather too much sulphur. Reasonably clean faintly bitter finish. Basic but ok.
