2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet malt, a hint of some nut and hop to balance. Decent session beer, but a touch too sweet and slightly cloying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a foamy, white head. Nose holds some toasty bread, light berries, some twigs. Light to medium sweet flavor with mellow, leafy bitterness, some jammy fruits, modest berries, a bit of bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Lightly sticky sweet finish with some dull berries, toasted sugars, bread, leaves. A pretty classic bitter served well.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this at the Boswell Hotel, Glasgow in June 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Hint of caramel in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a maltloaf flavour with syrupy sultanas and toffee notes prevailing. Spicy prickle of hop resins give a dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is fruity with sweet blood oranges evident. A decent session bitter and well recommended.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Royal Oak. Orange amber colour with small white head. Aroma is quite fruity, blood orange mainly. Slightly boozy too, almost a bit orange liqueur like. Taste has the same strong orange taste, quite full on in the mouth, maybe a bit too much over the course of a whole pint. Quite slick, with a fruity end. Liked it, but probably would have preferred to just have a half.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the White Rock Hotel, Hastings. Amber with a thin white head; fresh, hoppy aroma; clean bitter flavour with floral English hops - not what our American cousins would call hoppy - but hoppy nevertheless; the hops become peppery towards the finish, letting the malts come through with a handful of raisins tossed in for good measure. An excellent bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Elephant’s Head, Lamberhurst, Kent. Pours a deep orange-amber with a spare fizzy white head. Mild aroma, slightly sweet, of light hops, fruit and caramel malt. Flavour’s also a bit sweet along with a decent amount of floral hops which mostly show up in the finish. Average bodied. Pretty good, not "this is really hoppy" like the bartender said but still a good beer.

A lovely strong pale ale, I have tried this in both Bottle and Cask and it is such a nice ale from Harveys. Superb drink
