Tasting at Leighton’s Flat. Thanks to Scopes for this one. Bright clear gold beer, bubbly white head. Palate is light and crisp and semi dry. Dry pale malts, trace of sweet grain. Mild floralness. A little insipid orangey fruit. Light semi dry finish. Clean and fairly drinkable.

Scopey (7869) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle picked up at Harvey’s. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is simple, clean, toasty grain, sweet cereal and faint peach. The taste is toasty, cereal, light lemony citrus, soap, grainy and some underlying sweetness with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Really easy going. Simple and crushable.

Bottle shared at Leightons pre Christmas tasting. Thanks to Paul. Very pale yellow, very clear, loose white head. Aroma is classic harvey’s house nose. Some grassy green leaf hop, touch of sulphur. Flavour is composed of dirty green hop, fresh grass / silage, pale grains, straw. Touch of egg. Palate is clean and grainy, light body, moderate carbonation. Decent beer. Characterful and drinkable.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Fine and classic with hops, medium and balanced bitterness, some citrus in the aroma and cripsy mouthfeel. Not bad.

Bottle from the Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes - Firle. Pours out in a deep golden-light amber colour with airy low head and medium body. Aroma of hops, straw and flowers. Taste of bitter hops, light barley, straw, mild fruits and light citrus. Refreshing. Not a bad one.

From cask at White Hart, Crawley 22 Jan 14. 4,3%. Deep, deep amber. Low head with some color. The flavor is caramel with spicy notes. The typical Harvey’s flavor shines through. More spice in the finish. Good!

Rating from 2010 as Quids In: Harveys ist die einzige Brauerei Großbritanniens die ich kenne, die ihr Bier vorbildhaft in Mehrwegflaschen abfüllt. Da dies in England unüblich ist trägt die Flasche extra den netten Hinweis "Please return - we will wash and refill this bottle". Dunkelgolden ist das Bier im Glas, süßlich-voluminöser Geruch nach gelben Früchten. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-süßlich, sehr mild. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier etwas süßlich ale-typisch, durch die 4% bei weitem nicht so voluminös wie sein Geruch, aber sehr lecker und süffig. Fast gar nicht wässrig. In Hauptteil kommt neben der leicht süßlich-"aletypischen" Grundnote auch eine leichte Herbe zur Geltung, die sich gegen Ende weiter durchsetzt. Leichte Malztöne begleiten das leichte Bier. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, ale-typisch und herb mit angenehmer Malzsüße und einer mild-weichen Note. --> Ein ideales Sommerbier. Leicht, aber nicht geschmacklos; süffig, aber nicht wässrig; Mild, aber trotzdem aromenreich! Eine sehr zu empfehlende Golden Ale! --> 12,12,13,12,12,13 - 12,55
