harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear pale gold colour lasting white head. Pasteurised aroma no doubt. Some light dusty hay hop. A little hop character I suppose but it’s mostly pasteurised and light in flavour and character. Hmmm.
