3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Royal Oak. Dark red/brown with a small beige/slightly grey head. Aroma is oaky and fruity, bit of cherry in there I think. Quite creamy malty with a slight sourness. Bit thin in the mouth, and but with a nice fruity finish. For me one of the better Harveys beers, but still not wild about it.
