Copper colour. Quite a light easy drinking session bitter. Nice hoppy aroma, not massive flavours but nice slightly resinous hops on the finish

Cask at The Wenlock Arms. Floral/fruit hop aroma? Reddish amber color. White head. Started tasteless for a second, then there was an immense burst of fresh, fruity flavor. Medium mouthfeel. The finish is dry, fresh, bitter. Excellent. Malt? What’s that?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Cask conditioned - handpump - Lord Nelson, Brighton. An amber coloured beer with white lacing. The aroma is typical Harveys. Peppery hops. Same with the taste. Harveys can do little wrong with their cask beers for me, and even though this is not one of their better beers, it’s still excellent. More alcohol would be a help, but this is deliberately just 3.5%.Score 3.3
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5, 3.4 and 3.3. Average becomes 3.4

Golden glowing copper ale with a very small bubbly head. Not much pale character, very mild in this respect at best, but certainly an easy to drink session ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Garland, Redhill. Amber pint domed with bathfoam. Burton sulphur, peppery hop, touch of apple fruit on snout. Caramel, earthily fruity hop, chalky smoothness. Op-Ale? Drinks like a bottled Belgian ale of modest strength - plenty of mellow English hop character and dusty sherbet fruit from the yeast. Sulphur throughout. Assertively bitter finish lingering with vanilla malty afters. Big flavour at 3.5. Tasty sessions, nothing special.
