ACBF. Very pale gold beer, little white head. Light palate, crisp and dry. Dry pale malt with good bittering hops. Finishes dry - in fact it’s too dry overall but the flavour is alright.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
500ml bottle drunk at home thanks to Chriso who picked it up at Battersea BF. I’d had a sample of this at ACBF ’11 so I more or less knew what to expect. Very pale gold with a slight haze and lasting white head. Hoppy citrus lemon zesty aroma. Yes a tasty enough pilsner with only a slight hint of cardboard on the malts. Zesty hoppy finish is pleasant. Quite a fragrant finish. Not quite the finished article but getting there.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Clear yellow - white head. Soapy, zesty, herbal, fruity, light malty, hay, straw, nice medium bitterness, citrus. Pleasant.
