BeerViking (4211) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Cask/gravity at Kingston BF, dark red-tinged brown with little head, aromas of hop leaf, a little wet wood and a touch of red fruit. Notably hoppy without being more than lightly bitter, earthy and leafy, hints of nuttiness and burnt treacle.

EdKing (2410) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2016
UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 Cask in the Royal Oak, Borough. Dark mahogany to chestnut town, hints of red, clear with a slight off white head. Nose is yeasty Harvey’s: mushroom, rhubarb, fruity, then toffee and caramel, nutty and earthy. It’s all in the yeast. The base beer is fairly standard in terms of being an ESB but the yeast is taking it to another level.

Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 22/04/13. A mahogany coloured beer with an off-white bubbly head. Harveys mineral notes with a fruity sweetness. Medicinal notes, Not got the bosy I’d like but has the Harveys house funk. Good enough but not a World beater.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Egham Beer Festival on 23 April 2011. Good rich amber colour -not sure I’d call it ruby. Harveys are not always known for piling in the aromatic hops but don’t seem to have stinted here. As well as a firm earthy hop presence, there’s also a fair amount of sappy, grassy hop character and maybe a light, floral note too. More on the palate than in the aroma. Malt backup if fruity and vaguely nutty. Well balanced, satisfying and very drinkable. Very well put together indeed.
