3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Clear, mid-amber, with very little head. Aroma is sweet with malt and a touch of syrup. Flavours are refreshing and clean. Slightly thin, but overall thereís more going on than you expect given the low strength.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with no head at all, malty and fruity aroma, the taste is a bit sour and watery, but some fruit present, with a dry finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
250ml bottle at Royal Oak(Borough). Slightly hazy amber with a smallish off white head. Smells like pretty much nothing - very sweet a bit grassy no booze. Taste is like watery corn syrup and vaguely weedy. Thin and syrupy and quick finishing. This is in NO WAY an IPA. Poor.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
No head. One of the weakest beers Iíve ever had. Stale caramel flavor. A must miss. Tried with the parents in London in 2012.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, cakey ale aroma. Clear, burnt orange color, OK label. Inoffensive, but not a whole lot of anything really going on - lightly sweet, low hopping for my taste, a bit woody. Goes flat, thin mouthfeel. Rather quick, slightly briny finish. Thanks to Triock for hauling this back from East Sussex.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours copper brown. Very little head. Nose is first chocolate and caramel malt and then fruit bouquet. Taste is disappointing. Very little going on. Bit of fruit, bit of caramel malt, but on the palate there is very little other than a watery and fizzy mouthful. Bit cardboardy. Worst Harveys Iíve had - just very little flavour in there. I try to keep an open mind about pasteurisation but this oneís been nuked of flavour.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thin, watery palate. Dry hops are the main character here but itís not really an IPA and not something Iíd particularly look for again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
275ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. More a traditional English Pale Ale than an IPA, as used as a mixer in the traditional "Light and Bitter". Amber, little head and heavily carbonated; aroma of stewed malts; similar flavour; some reasonable dry hops to finish.
