harrisoni (14608) - Ashford, Kent, - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. I’ve just heard the phrase "my father would have killed for a rectum of a horse." which puts everything into context doesn’t it? Dark brown beer with a lasting thick dark beige head. This is a very good best bitter. Brilliant malts, great peppery hop on the end. This is really good. A very good best bitter.

From tap. It appears it is quite a good bitter: malty, caramel and with a decent amount of hops.
