harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. Drunk on the train to Ashford. Now I love me a biere de garde. There will also be a shed load of WWI beers released this year. Hoppy aroma with some Flanders yeast too. Sweeter in the mouth than I expected. Decent though. Decent hop on the finish. Reminds me of a low powered American Red. Decent. Bit too sweet maybe.
