harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Cask at brewery in Ramsgate, Kent When this is at its best it is a hoppy creamy strong ale of real class and extremely drinkable. When it isn’t at its best then it isn’t. I like Eddie’s beers though, they show character and are well made

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
Bottle, 5.0%. Slightly raggy, citric hoppiness in the aroma. Almost clear copper colour. Small tan head. The flavour is quite citric from the hops, like the aroma. Some yeast in the flavour, too. The bitterness starts rough, turns more cleansing. Good mouthfeel. Good, but not as good as I had hoped.
