3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, light caramel & biscuit malts, nuanced citrus over grassy, pilsner like notes. Well crafted, balanced very nicely with a mild bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nothing original, classic aromas. Good stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted (Bottle)) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into an english pint glass. ABV 4.2%
Deep golden colour on the body, just some bubbles rising to the top. A thin line of white foam as head, low retention, leaves a foam island on the surface and minimal lacing around the glass.
Nice aroma though, citrus, floral notes.
Same on the taste, light hops, citrus, floral notes, some peaches maybe. Aftertaste is medicinal.
Thin body, too thin actually, low carbonation.
Slightly disappointing this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco Winchester. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin, long-lasting, white head. The aroma is citrus, light grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth dry mineral, light butter, hop bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation. A perfectly drinkable session ale, but nothing too special.
