harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Cask handpull at Thomas Ingoldsby Spoons Canterbury. Pale brown bitter colour. Soft in mouth. Not very bitter. Some tomato sauce from somewhere. Not great. No real hop. A little metallic on the finish due to the green hops but otherwise not very interesting. 2.7/5. Re-rate 2014 version Cask gravity at the Berry Walmer. Clear gold lasting white head. OK golden ale. Bit of green hop oilyness. Fine
