4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of the great British beers! Sampled on draught - a clear copper colour with a foaming white head. Wonderful aroma of hops and that dry-hopped flavour giving this beer a superlative fruity and earthy flavour. Refreshingly bitter, which makes it very more-ish. Hints of citrus in the flavour and an excellent mouthfeel. Long hoopy finish. First class.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On gravity cask at The John Harvey Tavern in Lewes. Pours amber with white head. It is nicely balanced a bit fruity and some nice bitterness to counter. I had two pints and could have keep going for a few more. Great flavor for 4%.

Beautiful very distinctive hoppy bitter, unmistakeable individual aroma and flavor from the Harvey’s yeast strain.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange from the cask with fluffy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is faint, biscuit grain and fruit yeast. Taste is more prominent but still lacking a bit, hops come out a little bit more and the mineral properties of the water help this. Not bad, but kind of just average, like most British beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a cask at the 2016 Atlanta Cask Ale Festival.
Orange Amber body that’s slightly hazy and topped with a bubbly white head.
Mild but earthy aroma.
Much better and much stronger flavor although it takes a moment for the flavor to build up.
Mild+ bitterness. Good and lasting aftertaste.

Taps clear ambr with a thin ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but fruity and malty notes are OK. Flavor adds some bitter hops to the mix. Body and fizz are average. Worth trying.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is my favourite cask bitter in the entire world. Standard dark-gold clear appearance with light frothy lacing. The aroma is pleasantly hoppy and cheesy. It’s instantly noticeable that this beer is much more heavily dry-hopped than most cask ales. The malt character is deep and pleasing and well-rounded. The hop character is quite bitter and refreshing - not bitingly bitter, just slakes the thirst. Well worth trying.
