harrisoni (13712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2007
Cask gravity at Kingston BF 2007. Copper colour with lasting beige head. Citrusy bitter. Slightly creamy in mouth. Hop on finish is reasonably harsh. I like the York beers, but this is only slightly better than ordinary. Earthy strongish hop lifts it.

Light copper colour. Very dry and quite bitter. Not much malt character that I could discern. Finishes clean and dry. A good straightforward session bitter from a very reliable and go-ahead microbrewery. Handpump, The Speaker, London SW1, June 2003
