Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Cask at the Royal Oak, London. Dark reddish brown color. Dryish chocolate, toffee and nuts taste with fruity wine gums and peppery hops in the background. Easy mild taste, reminds Finnish low alcohol table beer (kotikalja).

shoulderbroken (3452) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 26, 2011
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.

Scopey (11555) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Cask at the Royal Oak. It pours dark brown, with pretty much no head. The nose is caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and a touch of vinegar. The taste is caramel, light vinegar, nut, wood, leather, roast malt and charcoal, with a big dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent.

Cask - The Royal Oak, Borough, London. Poured a hazy, deep ruddy brown with a fine though lasting tan head leaving a moderate, soapy lace. Mild sweet roasty, fruity notes on the aroma. Delicate roast on the tongue, a hint of chocolate, nutty, house yeast and a finishing berry tang. Dry medium length bitterness, light body with softish carbonation.
