UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Oct, 2005 Garland, Redhill. Prominent malt and hops, fully integrated and balanced. Splendid fresh flavours. A scintillating and fascinating beer, with that wonderful oaky Harveys note. Awesome. If only all beers could be this good. It is the freshness, the balance, the harmony, and the individual Harveys character that mark this out. [4.5]
Oct, 2011 Victoria, Eastbourne Beers don’t get much better than this. A stronger version of the classic Harvey’s Best. Good fruit base, lots of character and flavour, the distinctive Harvey’s hop blend, and that wonderful unique Harvey’s yeast. Yummyness abounds! [4.7]

This is a delightful beer. This by far was one of my favourites at the Eastbourne beer festival last year.
Harveys keep on coming with very good quality ales

(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Light amber colour. Spicy, hoppy, typical Harveys nose. Crisp, clean, spicy hoppy taste, with a slight malty dry sweetness at the end,- Extremely delicate. Another great one from Harveys !

Cask, four pint take out from the brewery shop, 2nd Oct 2010. Perfectly clear bright amber with no head. Lovely citrus and raisin nose. Good dry flavour behind a palate that is full without being too heavy. Perhaps it could do with a little more spice and quirkiness but overall a lovely pint.

Royal Oak, Borough 13/08/07 Golden yellow. Satisfyingly firm head. Although an ESB seemed very much like a golden ale. Light, well hopped with a bitter finish. Refrshing. Definitely a good summer beer in a old IPA style. My favourite Harveys.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 (Cask at Royal Oak, Borough, London, 19 Nov 2008) Copper colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with dried fruit, peaches and hints of yeast.
