A very light ale, slighty fruity with quite a bitterish hop finish. Just a whisper of smoke. Inoffensive and easy to drink.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Golden pour withb a foamy, white head. Sharp, baked malts on the nose. Lightly sweet flavor, oddly smokey, lightly, with hints of ham and band-aids. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Modestly sweet finish, some bread and crisp malts, faint bitterness. I can dig it.

harrisoni (17336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2007 500ml bottle from the brewery. Having had 4 bottles of this I have decided that I like it. Chilled and filtered before bottling. Amber, rocky white head. Little bit estery on aroma on this bottle which I didn’t pick up on the previous bottles. Good sharp English hop aroma too. Decent malts in mouth, little bit biscuity. Peachy hop finish is very good. Bitter. Tasty, but would like to try on cask. I had this on cask at the Gardener’s Arms in Lewes and didn’t like it as much as the bottle version, fuller, but sweeter and less hoppy.
