harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Cask gravity Firkin Ale house Folkestone. Clear gold lasting white head. A good looking beer. Wow that’s properly good. Hoppy interesting hop and excellent condition and peppery and interesting and drinkable and basically a surprise and a giod one cos it’s lovely. Bristol BF produce good beers but this is excellent. Terrific hoppy golden bitter balanced.

rlgk (14695) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2011
Cask at Euston Tap, London. Golden, nice lasting offwhite head. Fruity aroma. Malty fruity, somewhat strange flavor. Guess there is something with this brewery that does not appeal to me.
