3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm 30 June, 2005.
Dark amber to brown. Unusually unhoppy/unflowery for a Harvie. Almost on the border to a brown ale to me, haven’t it been for the quite sharp and hoppy finish. Hints of chocolate and roasted barley.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Darkish amber. Citric, lightly roasty aroma. Sweet and fairly light bodied with rich grapefruity hop character. Bitter, lightly resiny finish. Good, but Harviestoun can do better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Orange tinged brown, and small soapy head. Good fresh, grassy aroma. Silky mouthfeel, for a Bitter, a tinge of carbonation maybe. Hoppy flavour all the way throug, not overtly aggressive, just flavoursome, and holds to the finish. Slightly watery, slightly planty, but overall fresh and very refreshing. Good stuff.
