Bottle drank in my stylish pastiche bar at home. Golden/amber pour with a light beige head. Itís frothy man! Well carbonated this one. Fresh citrus nose, predominantly lemon and grapefruit. Lemon zest, grapefruit and light herb flavours. Fresh hop tang. Strong, bitter finish. Nice.

harrisoni (15659) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2011
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Deep gold slight haze. No real head. Some hops on aroma fruit salad style. Better in mouth. A little syrupy but some decent pepper hop on finish. Quite tasty but funnily enough a little watery too. Some sherbert hop. Initialy I wasnt yhat keen but it did win me over

Peach aroma. Rich gold. Sweet, but quite bitter, and again peachy hops in the mouth. Nice carbonation for a real ale. You can tell that itís a pretty serious beer, but not stupidly so. Good one.

Bright clear gold beer, untidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with mild fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, mildly sweet, trace of cream. Hops start with a modestly bitter floralness. The mid brings mild pine, pith, citric fruits and a nice mild peach. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Mild bitter linger. Clean and pretty drinkable.
