harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Cask handpull at Parcel Yard Kings Cross. Clear pale brown lasting beige head. Given that it is a bitter and it is a bitter then it’s decent. Better than average as it has some ok malt in the middle of the flavour. Very drinkable and a good brown best bitter what lile we don’t get anymore as everyone wants to do a new world hop golden ale.
