harrisoni's rating

harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. I’ve just heard the phrase "my father would have killed for a rectum of a horse." which puts everything into context doesn’t it? Dark brown beer with a lasting thick dark beige head. This is a very good best bitter. Brilliant malts, great peppery hop on the end. This is really good. A very good best bitter.

Flasche 0,5l: Kastanienbraun, dunkles Kupfer, leichte Trübung, etwas mittelporiger Schaum; würzige Nase, Röstmalz, Malzzucker, dunkle/eingelegte Früchte, dezente Hopfennoten; frischer würziger Körper, Kräuter, Röstmalz, kräftige Röstaromen, eingelegte Früchte, recht sauer, cremig, deutliche Kohlensäure, leicht rauchig; angenehmer säuerlich-würziger Nachgang

Aroma: herbal notes and toasty caramel. Flavour similar added with some dark berries/fruit. Very smooth mouth-feel indeed. A bit weird, as I am not that familiar with proper English bitters. Good though.
