harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Cask handpull at Borough Market. Dark copper colour with thin beige head. Cookie dough and hoppy aroma. Caramel and op in mouth. More hop on end but disappinting and a bit of muddle of flavours. Like so many beers at this pub, never sure that this is exactly how it should taste. 2.5/5 Re rate County Hotel Ashford. Decent hoppy pale ale. Good pink grapefruit hops.

Cask, 4.6%. Mild dusty aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Nice firm white head. Sweetish fruity flavour, red berries. Very well-balanced. Not like American IPA, but very good.
