harrisoni (16056) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2007
568ml bottle from Sainsbury. Deep gold colour with thin white head. Cut grass aroma with thin lemon citrusy hop. Well, if this is what an Englishman wants, "bring me my fields of burning gold," then I’m emigrating. Over carbonated, filtered, pasteurised, like most beers that undergo that treatment the malt is stripped and non existant which leaves only the hop to enjoy. and although it’s acceptable the rest of the beer is watery and non existant.
