Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy amber beer. Residual off white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Green apple note. Mild rye spice and toffee malt. A little tropical fruit underneath. Semi dry finish with mild spice and bitter linger. Alright, the apple note soon fades.

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask handpull at Baker Street Spoons. Clear pale brown with sparse off white head. Some tropical fruit on the aroma. Peculiar as i get some liquorice. Spicy rye is there. Needs more hops. Spicy rye finish. Ok. Just a bit interesting but doesnt go the whole hog. A little restrained but the rye is definitely present
