Has a red amber color. The aroma and flavour are strong with syrupy red fruit. Considering it’s sweetness it is quite smooth and easy to drink.

harrisoni (15009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Clear amber lasting white head. It’s pretty good. Drinkable 8% beer, bit of mustiness bit of oxidisation. Otherwise it’s fine. I’d have gone with strong French biere de garde, but didn’t know it was a lager. And wouldn’t taste it. might be an older bottle hence the oxidisation. Fine, it’s ok.
