harrisoni (14850) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2010
UPDATED: APR 23, 2011 Cask handpull at The Pilot, Maidstone. Whilst the rest of the London crew were enjoying the BrewDog Abstrakt event, I was in Maidstone being totally blown away. This cask had been on for 4 days, so could have been in better condition, hence the 3 for palate but the sweet malts are great. But the best thing is the dry hopping which gives it a really sharp full hoppy green English hop finish. So arresting. Stunnhing. Even if it is 4 days old, you can’t kill the brilliance of this beer. Utter amazing. Re-rate Cask handpull at Egham spring festival 2011. Still hoppy still drinkable as hell just one of my favourite beers.

Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 22/04/13. A mahogany coloured beer with an off-white bubbly head. Harveys mineral notes with a fruity sweetness. Medicinal notes, Not got the bosy I’d like but has the Harveys house funk. Good enough but not a World beater.
