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.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours turbid dull orangy with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is oats, rye, barley, corn flakes, citrus. Tastes bitter, hoppy, with grainy corn flakey flavors. Overall is a bit too bitter for me without enough hops and has an odd aftertaste.

mile (2730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle. Light amber, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light fruitiness and some caramel and toffee, faint roasted malt. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light fruitiness, caramel and some toffee, faint roasted malt. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light roasted malt, light hoppyness. Bitter with caramel and toffee - OK, but nothing special.

Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Fucker gushed on me despite having a reasonable carbonation level. Didnít shake it up at all. Weird. Lightly hazed orange-amber-brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention isnít too great and small touches of lacing are left. 4.0 S: The barley, rye, and oats come through well. The wheat is a bit harder to find. Large mineral component. Spicy earthiness from the rye and supple graininess from the oats. This combination is unique for me and I rather like it. Strong lemongrass and pear fruitiness. 3.5 T: The taste, while still good, isnít as exciting as the nose. The individuals mesh a little too well and are softened. Still earthy and spicy with the mineral component. Pear and ripe apple fruits. Lemongrass herbalness. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy. Not bad here. 3.5 D: Decent brew with a lovely nose. Easy enough to drink. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-02-2012 01:56:41

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Oct 2006: Very drinkable bottle of English Pale Ale. Pale bronze in colour, with a a tight almost white head, it looke the part. The blend of barley, wheat, oats and rye give it a sweet aroma, with hops just about winning the battle for top dog in the smelling stakes. Hops and fruit flavours fill your mouth, again a sweet taste, like the aroma, although, matliness also forces its way into the reckoning when mouthfeel and overall flavour is searched for. This will not be everyones idea of a classic English Pale Ale, far to sweet for most, but as a beer for drinking with friends, it is ideal. I like it very much.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Present notes of caramel in the nose with subtle fruity notes. Sweet-bitter flavour, rather light bodied with a prickly carbonation. Mildly bready cara-malty taste with notes of popcorn; moderately dry, quite slim and mildly bitter hoppy finish with slightly sourish wheaty notes. Likeable, but not overly impressive. 08.IV.12

Idiosynkrasie (3232) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 21, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear copper colour with small macropore white head. Unspecific grainy aroma. Not really delightful monotonous grainy taste, dry, sourish, weird.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium amber color with a medium sized soapy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy pepper, wheat, bread and was a touch grainy. The flavor was tangy, dryish and somewhat bitter with a grainy wheat presence, faint pepper, citrus, bread and anise. The finish was medium length tangy, bready and grainy. Medium body. Ok.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Orange colored pour. Small, soapy, off-white head. Not much staying power and no lacing. Malty sweet aroma with a slight caramel note. Sweet malt flavor with a tiny bit of rye pepper bite. Bitter in the back. Not bad, but a little too sweet.

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
standard, clear light amber coloured liquid, head settles into a thin white lacing on the edges of the glass. the aromascape is light and refreshing with a very solid, crispy malt base and light fruity hops. pleasant to sniff and reminds me of spring. the taste manages to remain fresh and still bring out those tasty malty tones. the sweetness almost reminds me of some belgian wheat beers with subtle fruit hops from an esb.. this meeting the lightly sour bread character and mild bitterness works very well. the medium body is in balance with this , keeping the texture grainy and surprisingly full, fresh and solid. reminds me of spring, very enjoyable and would be great to enjoy on a porch some spring evening.
