harrisoni (13253) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. The 2nd beer of Saturday (I had a pint of Cains Bitter whilst everyone else settled in and started arriving). Golden, thin off white head. Good carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Bit of sickly malt. Finish is a bit disappointing. Odd bitter. Bit earthy I guess from the Goldings hops. Some juicy fruit.

Bottled. Golden coloured. Dusty. Fluffy off white head. Sweetness, light caramel and light spice in the aroma. Flaovur is herbal and sweet. Some fruity notes. Medium bodied. Light smooth bittterness in the end. Quite refreshing and easy to drink beer.
