harrisoni (12651) - 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 conditioned gravity dispense Banbury Beer Festival 2010. A light blonde coloured beer with a whitish ring of head. A hint of toffee with lemony hops in the nose. Slightly sweet in the mouth which doesn’t balance as well with the hops as you’d like. It’s OK.
