harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2009 Cask conditioned handpull at The Knights Templar, JDW, Chancery Lane. Pale gold with thin white head. Trademark citrus hop aroma, not in best condition maybe. A little flat. But the insistent hop on the finish is impossible to ignore. Aroma and finish are excellent, malts are a little weak. 3.4/5. Re-rate Cask handpull at The Bull, Horton Kirby, Kent. Pale gold, lasting white head. Really quite tart, but a lovely light piercing citrus fruit beer. Almost lime like. Really great condition too. Wow, that lime/hop is exceptional. Stunning. The freshness on the new barrel was amazing with a harsh mango fruit edge.
