2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hand-pulled pint in the brewery owned Royal Oak, Borough, London. The Sussex Best Bitter was very poor on my visit on 11th Sep 2014 so I got my little party this next: it was in worse condition if anything. Really disappointed with the cask quality and i should have taken every beer I bought back to the bar, but others around us seemed to be drinking their pints. This rate will be altered (hopefully) on my next trip to London although I doubt my wife, son and his father-in-law will ever venture into a Harvey’s pub ever again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ GBBF 2014. Smooth fresh beginning. The mainpart has caramel, smooth malt, nice fresh hops but sadly not such a nice ale character. The aftertaste is smooth, fresh. Malt, slightly bitter, caramel with hints of earthy bitterness. Fresh, hoppy bitter and caramelly malty aftertaste that stays relatively long on the tongue!
