harrisoni (18437) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Cask at Shakespeare Head Spoons. Very drinkable golden ale. Good mouthfeel good condition good hops. Just a little watery on the finish. Could be bitterer. Re rate yes mouthfeel still best thing about it. Bit perfumed just needs a bitterer finish. i want to like it more than i do due to the mouthfeel and condition
