harrisoni (14852) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2007. Gold with lasting white head. Fragrant hop aroma. Litlle bit soft may, but sherberty hop is tasty. I liked it, very sessionalbe, I like the hop, some US hop maybe. Very drinkable and the barrel had just come on. Good to see Bowman coming out of the ashes of the Cheriton brewery which was always fantastic. The Quiver though is better.

Cask conditioned at The Eight Bells, Alton, Hampshire. Orange gold with white head. Quite still and soft in character but with a juicy, malty fullness, there is an orange citrus to it. Quite bitter in the close, very pleasant.
