Blond-golden color. The aroma is grassy, with hay and manure, some cereals too. Dry mouthfeel, with some grassy malt, and strong bitterness; the hopping is a bit lemony. Good.

harrisoni (14584) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2005
500ml bottle from Real Ale shop. Golden with thick lasting white head. Really nice hop nose reminiscent of some US beers like Rogue. However, mouth is more subtle with a citric hop finish. Good beer. Bit of golden syrup in the mouth. Hop aroma is a real winner though.
