Tasted 22/4/2013 draught "The Harrison", Kings Cross, London. Poured a clear amber colour with a 5mm thick off-white bubbly head that laced OK. Aroma sweet citrus and faintly of hops. Tasted slightly sweet (citrus, orange) fading to a mild bitterness. Light body. A smooth, soft, light ale with a sweet and very faint bitter finish. Refreshing; easy drinking.

Weak on the nose. Creamy texture with a light fizz. Horrible soggy-cornflakey flavour going on. Would not buy again.

One of the most reliable pints you can get in a good London pub. Very smooth and delicate taste with traces of orange, citrus. Refreshing for an ale.

Good beer depends on how it is kept and served, not just the brew itself. This, however, is one of the most consistently excellent beers with truly great taste.

Great beer and would usually choose this as my first beer when available as you know what your getting. 2nd and 3rd may choose something else as I get more adventurous

Normally a plain style. However, this is the best pint Iíve ever found in Scotland. Kept ordering up more. Pour was golden to orange, a typical handpulled smooth head thay sustains itself quite well. Lacing smooth. Aroma of earthiness and some citrus and fruits. Flavor is citrusy, woody, earthy, fruity, with a nice grainy malt base balanced in there. Nothing sticky, caramel-like, toffee, etc.... Just a nice clean smooth brew. Hats off to TT. Enjoyed in Braughty Ferry area.

Cask@Blue Stoops Chesterfield. Apparently not the easiest of beers to keep,but this pub knows how to look after it,s ales. golden brown with tight head,nice combination of malt and fruits with a good balance all round. A very good session beer that ticks all the right boxes. I am struggling to find any reason to criticise it.

This can be so variable. On form, it is great. Kept badly this is a poor pint. Fortunately mein host (at the Old Red Lion Theatre, Angel) kept it well. It pours a nice orang/gold colour, with a decent íNortherní head of off white foam....and you still get this, even though we are now in the South. The aroma is of crisp British hops - nothing tropical here, but still fruity. On the palate, this is crisp and fresh, but with a good counterbalance of sweetness to balance out the (what is for a ítraditionalí British hop) quite complex hop profile. As I say, when itís good, itís very good.
