4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2011 Cask handpull at The Pilot, Maidstone. Whilst the rest of the London crew were enjoying the BrewDog Abstrakt event, I was in Maidstone being totally blown away. This cask had been on for 4 days, so could have been in better condition, hence the 3 for palate but the sweet malts are great. But the best thing is the dry hopping which gives it a really sharp full hoppy green English hop finish. So arresting. Stunnhing. Even if it is 4 days old, you can’t kill the brilliance of this beer. Utter amazing. Re-rate Cask handpull at Egham spring festival 2011. Still hoppy still drinkable as hell just one of my favourite beers.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
