harrisoni (13856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog drunk on a train. Hazy brown russet lasting thick beige head. Malty aroma slightly stale American beer aroma. We get that a lot in the UK but less so now. But I guess this is better when fresh. Although the flavour and finish on this is fine. It’s just that sticky toffee aroma. Ok. Just a little stale ok strawberry jam.
