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.

This beer has a fruity taste. The strength is deceptive and could be mistaken for a session beer. This beer will appeal lager & bitter drinkers alike. A good all-year-round drink.

Pours a golden orange colour and has a light fruity aroma and you certainly taste all 4 grains plus hints of fruit a very good beer.

As you might expect, a grainy aroma, and a bright golden body with a Rocky white head. Light tasty flavour, I was prepared to dislike this beer, thinking it was a bit of a gimmick from Batemans, but it doesnít disappoint. A delicious golden summer beer. Yum Yum!

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.

Very pleasant and appealing sweet fruity aroma. Reminds me of summer in a bottle. Decent frothy head, orange golden appearance. Very nice texture, rich yet perfect balance of fruits and hops. Lovely bitterness. Really enjoyed this ale. Excellent.

Bottle found at Half-time by the wife...Zoinks. Ahh bless her heart, she got me a healthy multi-grain beer for heart health and lowering my cholesterol. It worked! A lovely deeper amber in the glass. Wavy oily head. Malt rich body as one would assume, bready and smooth not grainy. Nose is malt as well. A well presented and balanced brew. Welcome after a hot day of work.

Appearance: clear brassy amber, with a medium white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: solid malt presence with a pleasantly subtle whiff of rye bread and notes of dark fruits. Taste: whole grain brown bread, caramel, toffee, a little spice from the rye, with notes of cherry and some mellow, smooth hoppyness. Finish: clean, crisp, and short, with a bit of lingering toasty malts. Notes: Iím not terribly famliar with ESBs, but I canít believe this isnít more highly rated. This thing practically defines drinkable. The balance between sweet, bready malts (with a lovely bit of rye spice), a hint of sweet fruits, then a leveler of mellow, slightly herbal and floral hops made this wonderful drinking. Gone before I knew it.

Nothing like a good English ESB. Love the multigrain malt body, a very complex malt body, complimented by Belgian yeast notes.

I tried a Spring Breeze lately and it was flat as a pancake and so skunked that I couldn't drink it(but I did) The Combined Harvest could not have been more different.Nice off-white fizzy head with delicate lacing.Sweet white wine aroma with pears.Lovely amber colour.Great barley flavour with some caramel.I really enjoyed this brew and drunk it all before I finished rating it.

Orange color with no head. Aroma of oranges and peaches. Very fruity flavor, mostly pear and peach. A little grainy quality. Quite sweet.
