A fiery pale bitter. Choicest hops and premium malt make for a fruity and well balanced beer with a full, dry finish.

harrisoni (14850) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2009
Cask conditioned handpull at Dragon Inn, Worcester. Pale gold, thin white head. Chilli beer I’d say. Spicy hop at least. Very spicy on the finish of a decent pale ale.

330ml bottle bought at Wine Rack in Leeds last summer. Tiny bubbly, white head to a bright amber coloured body. Caramel and citrus hops on the nose. Taste of leafy hops mingled with mid-sweet juicy malts. Sharp bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Good enough (shared with Finn, Tromsø 1012.2014).
