COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal (June). Also available in 500ml bottles.

Copperwheat is named after the fictitious Lewes brewers in Mrs. Dudeny’s novel ’Seed Pods’ (1927). Originally inspired by SIBA’s Wheat Beer challenge in 2001. It is best served chilled.

Brewed with malted wheat and barley, this ’Kristal Weissbier’ contains only English hops. Harveys own brewing liquor and yeast strain are employed but the result is a very continental flavour. It has been described as "wheat and sweet" but it still retains the typical dry palate and is extremely moreish.

Contains: Barley and Wheat

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Cask at the Royal Oak, Borough. It pours clear deepish amber with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is earthy, bitter-sweet, cereal, spicy action, toffee, dusty basement, apple pie and clove rock. The taste is bitter, wood, grassy notes, spicy hops, caramel, cereal, wheaten bread, banana bread and apple with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Way better than the bottled version. Quaffable stuff.
