COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Occasional. Has also been available in bottle.
Harvest Zest is a unique flavour combination of exciting malts, hops and fruit. This beer is brewed with malted barley, oats, wheat and rye, and to impart a little "zest" grapefruit peel is added to the mash. The flavours combine tremendously well to give a smooth, well balanced citrus style beer. A beer with appeal to more than just the main stream premium ale drinker.

rauchbier (3612) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, - JUL 16, 2002
Bottled. Gold colour, moderate head and condition with some lacing on the glass. Citrusy lemon nose, more citrus in the mouth along with a delicate pepperiness. Finish starts bitterly and becomes harsh and astringent at the end.

StueyD (1165) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2006
Tasted in 2002. A dark, yellowy golden beer with a weak white head. The nose is of sweet roasted malt and toasted wheat with just a hint of lemon in the finish. The taste is of a wonderfully smooth hoppiness, the toasted wheat and malt are present again, as is the citrusy finish that lingers on the tongue. (Bottle).

imdownthepub (10325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2003
Bottled, Pastuerised. Pale orange colour small head. Lemon zest with hops, smooth and drinkable but overall leaves you unimpressed.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2003
Amber in appearance, pours with virually no head. Light, refreshing, zesty nose. Grapefruit give it a wonderful zesty taste that enhances the good flavour of this beer.

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2002
Another light and refreshing type of summer beer, this time with the addition of grapefruit zest. I enjoyed it, although its light appearance, and lack of any real depth of flavour makes for a easily forgetable drink. Not bad though.
