harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2006
Cask handpull at Fly in the Loaf, Liverpool. Copper colour with creamy head. Seem to use a tight sprinkler. Yeasty session bitter with goodish hop finish. Bit metallic. Even still tasty session beer. Bit thin around the edges but core yeast/caramel/hop falvours hold together well. A bitter that is bitter
