harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Gold, thin white. Thin, weedy. OK so it’s a mild and it is very mild. Decent condition, a little tingle on end. Pretty ok if you want a light beer, some citrus earthy finish. Nothing wrong with it at all. Very light.

Cask, handpump at The Hen & Chickens, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, 24-04-10 Pours light gold with a white creamy soft head. Some slight bitterness noted, lightly fruity, but again a soft easy drinking bitter that I tend to find crop up quite frequetly in the West Midlands and surrounding area. A5 A4 F7 P3 Ov12 3.1
