MichaelAwesome (4447) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Fine and classic with hops, medium and balanced bitterness, some citrus in the aroma and cripsy mouthfeel. Not bad.

McTapps (4464) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
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.

Finn (4363) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
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

worldbeertaste (1676) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Clear orange with a thin fizzy white head. Smells of malt, toffee, grain (woody), toasted malt. Medium oily body. Taste of malt, grain, toasted grain, with a light sweet start and hop bitter finish. The finish has sor peachy fruit with some citrus. Though there is some complexity there is a hint of cardboard which makes it a bit chewey. Not bad but forgettable.

Mad_Ferret (658) - SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2011 Bottle. Clear golden with a short off white leaving some lacings. Aroma is grassy and a bit sourish and floral hoppy with some pale malts and a touch of butterscotch. Taste is sweet malty with some butterscotch and a grassy floral bitterness. Medium to thinner body with low carbonation. A bit buttery and creamy. Ok, but pretty boring.

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle, Pale amber with no head and moderate carbonation. Sweetish, yeasty aroma with a touch of peach and orange fruit. Earthy flavour, with some more fruit and bitter finish. Ok.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2010
Bottle as Harveys Quidsin. The aroma has flowery hops, some toffee/caramel. Clear, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is fairly bitter, has some malty sweetness and flowers. Light-medium bodied. Okay.

Bottle from the brewery shop, consumed on 30 July 2009. Gold colour but more like a bitter in character than a golden ale. Albeit a fairly soft and easy drinking one. Decent balance of mild earthy hops and toasty malt. Clean enough. Does its job without fuss. A pleasant quaffer.
