COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: pasteurised. Bottled by Marston’s.
Combined Harvest is a unique combination of brewing worts, or extracts from a variety of cereals. Most premium ales are brewed only using malted barley, but this multigrained beer has a unique multigrain blend of malted barley, oats, rye and wheat. Grainy tasting with a delightful floral start and finish.

Not too sure about this one. Drinkable, not totally awful, but somehow soapy? Prefumed? Waxy? Light in colour and light on flavour too.

Aug 2012 - slightly floral, which I wasn’t expecting. Quite light, but not watery. Biscuity finish. Not bad.

pivnizub (9167) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle: Almost clear, deep golden with a orangey sheen, stable creamy off-white foamy layer, honeyish and hoppy nose with a light tinge of vegetables; spicy sweetish-bitter flavour,relatively light bodied, but pretty soft; getting drier and hoppier towards the malty-bitter finish. Just O.K. ...

Suttree (5432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Clear copper, big but loose white head. Bready, toasty, lightly spicy aroma. Very malty. Lots grainy, toasty flavors. Hints of spicy, peppery flavors, too. Not bad...

Dendroid (6) - Bawtry, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012 does not count
Bottle bought 28 Dec 12, Best Before 28 Feb 13. Clear dark golden honey colour, thick white head which settles gradually, visible light effervescence. Citrusy* sour and slight biscuity smell. Watery mouthfeel, predominant cereal taste**, bitterness doesn’t last. Not hoppy enough. First taste of Batemans, underwhelming but pleasant enough, will try some of their other beers when given the chance. Having read Marko’s review, I think he hits the nail on the head: *and Apricot **also, slight sweet Apricot and Yeast

Bottled 500ml. -from Bieres Cultes, Paris. Shared with Marko and luttonm. Dark golden coloured, small off-white head, grainy bready nose. Malty, acidic yeasty and moderate grainy with notes of fruits. Rather watery finish. Nothing special here.

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2012
.5l bottle, with the most ridiculous label I’ve ever seen. "A unique combination of grains. Barley, oats, wheat and rye combine to give a superb aroma of freshly harvested grain. It has equal appeal to male and female drinkers. It goes well with MOST FOOD DISHES. World’s Best Pale Ale at the World Beer Awards." (emphasis theirs). Rusty gole-brown. Big soapy head. Grainy, fruit cake, (multigrain) bread. Medium carbonated body. Odd fruits, mish-mash of mash. Ginger ale, sweet cola, rye bread. Ok, but doesn’t live up the the label (*wink)

The commercial description on this one was a blast, but can’t be bothered to quote from it. Ogi’s. Poured a nicely full golden body with a small white head. Apricot juice/fruitcake aroma, grainy. The taste is light apricot struggling in a crappy yeastiness. Perfumey and I love the fruity touch, but it’s so spoiled by the yeastiness that I can’t take a liking to it. Ok but not ok.
