harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle at the Porterhouse in Covent Garden. Clear chestnut colour lasting beige head. Sour hoppy malty alcoholic aroma. Pine hops. Very malty. A little thin. That’s a surprise. Big wild not exactly subtle or balanced but certainly entertainment in a glass.
