Cask handpull, The New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield- A Beer For Every Year crawl. Greenish pale gold, thick creamy top. Leafy hop and nettles aroma with a puff of sulphur. Fresh lemon zesty hop with lingering creamy cashew. Nothing fancy- classic pale citrusy sessions, in tip top nick.

harrisoni (13727) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask handpull at Market Porter. Very pale gold, thin off white head. Decent golden ale, more hops than most beers in this style. Only a touch of soapy hop, mostly good sherbert. OK golden ale. I like Acorn. Decent spritzey condition.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Market Porter. Clean gold with a thin white head. Standard bitter golden stuff with a hint of wheat and a clean bitter finish with some late mineral notes. Straight down the line but very tasty and hugely drinkable. Good stuff.
