3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Lord Nelson, Brighton. Gold with white head. Basic malty golden beer with a sharp fruitiness overlaid, quite apricot in character. Slightly thin. It’s ok but just a little dull.

10th July 2012
Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer, suddy white head. Light palate, a little dry and a mildly crispy. Fresh tangy palate, malty and dry. Crisp citrus with mild nettle like hops, some pine as well. Dry finish with a little marmalade.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. Summer ale. Golden color. The nose is subpar - a little too light. There’s hints of honey, grassy hops and pears. The taste is watery sweet with a little but of dry earthiness from the hops. The palate is a little unstructured, watery and simple. Not great, Harveys does much better than this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Elephant’s Head, Lamberhurst, Kent. Pours a hazy copper with a spare diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of light hops, apples, more fruit and malt. Flavour’s the same, and quite light, with light leafy hops, apples, caramel malt and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Simple and pleasant, an O.K. beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Lord Nelson, Brighton.
Clear golden with some white bubbles on top.
Slight resiny and perfumy hoppy but quite nasty citrus fruity aroma with some peach that is embedded in a funky sewer aroma. Euch! (After a bit down in the glass the smelll disappeared. The problem might have been the tap and not the beer).
Taste is pale caramel malty with toffee and a decent citrus fruity hop punch.
Medium body with some light tickeling carbonation.
Refreshing and light but with a nasty smell.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Royal Oak, Borough, May 2007. Yes it is golden in colour but seems to lack the fresh, vibrant feel that I enjoy in this style of beer. Very little aroma. Soft on the palate. Some hops but not a lot of bite. Pleasant enough, and certainly easy-drinking but a bit dull. Not one of Harveys better beers for me.
