harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, - JUL 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Kent bf 2012. clear gold i had it as Andrew said it was good. Cask beer is lovely stuff when done well. That lovely mouthfeel is sublime and unlike anything else in the beer world. This has pale malt and sufficient tangerine hop to keep your mouth interested. Decent beer. Good sharp tang on the finish.
