Bottle at home. Picked up at Harvey’s. It pours clear amber with a tiny white head. The nose is malt-driven, toasty, brown bread, biscuit, earth, damp basement and leaf. The taste is smooth, toasty grain, bitter, biscuit, brown bread, cereal, earthy, leaf and light spice with a pretty bitter finish. Medium body and light carbonation. Earthy bitter. Pretty decent considering its pasteurised. Interesting.

Bottled, 275ml with thanks from Bill, cheers. Gold to amber with slight head. Slightly thinnish beer with a tinny, metallic edge on a grainy malt. There is a softening caramel note, a little boiled then a leafy dry hop element. Ok.

Pours a amber brown colour with a thin white head, plenty of fruit and malt in the aroma, the taste is bitter at first then has a long dry finish.

Bottle at home (Harveys online) - 22/09/12.
Pours a crystal clear golden amber with a very thin off-white head that moves quickly towards the edge of the glass and soon vanishes without trace.
Nose comprises caramel malt, biscuit, orange, citrus fruit.
Tastes follow, a little hops and grain.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation with a bitter finish.
Drinkable and average.

Clear amber beer. Slightly dry and slightly crisp palate. Crisp malt well integrated with light fruity hop. Finish is a little over dry for me but this is an easy drinking light ale. Fruit is peach and light orange.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle found in Hastings. Golden amber with a ring of white head; rich malty aroma with a touch of sozzled raisins; full and fruity malt aroma; with a dry, solidly bitter finish with lingering hops. A rather good ESB.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating from an old notebook. 275ml bottle. Delightful deep chestnut colour, no head, very low carbonation. Unmistakeable Harveys aroma, berry fruit, caramel. A distinctive sweet bitter, little in the way of hopping. Bitters don’t usually work in bottles, especially when they are pasteurised but as with the Armada these are among the very best examples. I really enjoyed this and look forward to drinking this on cask.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear redish chestnut with a short head that lace.
Sweet nutty caramel roasted aroma with faint fruits and flowery hops.
Sweet nutty and sligt roasted toffee flavour with some fruit and a vague note of chocolate and mild hops. Syrup.
Medium body with smooth carbonation.
Tasty but way too sweet for me.
