Slightly hazy amber beer. Toffee on the nose. Light crispy palate. Toffee malt, crisp. Just a little hop fruit and bitterness coming through before the dry finish. Not bad.

Amber color. Some malt aroma. Malt and caramel flavor, with a light but nice hoppy touch, and a reasonable ending bitterness.

Golden to amber color. Some fudge aroma, light caramel and paper. The flavor is lacking of malt and hop, but the body is quite strong and the bitterness high.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2009
33cl bottle from GBBF 09, Well this isn’t too interesting. Some toasty notes, some caramel. Pretty empty on the finish too. Probably some diacetyl as well. Not really any hop either. In an English style? Well if you wanted to make a beer with diacetyl and not much flavour then yes, it is in an English style.
