omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2005
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Bronze colour. Grapefruity hop aroma. Dry and light bodied with rounded mouthfeel. The rich hoppiness creates a near shampoolike flavour. Feels fresh. Lingering bitter finish. A weird cross of styles with it’s very american style hop character and British style malt character.

harrisoni (14139) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2005
Gravity cask at Red Lion, Snargate. Amber coloured, with typical Harviestoun hop nose, some lemon citrus fruit, then the reminiscent american dry hop finish. Not my favourite Harviestoun, but nice enough

Clear pale gold colour. Spritzy citric aroma. Flavour is similar - fresh zesty citrus. Clean finish. Nothing too complex, but very impressive for what it is. Rather reminiscent of Bitter & Twisted. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London SW1.
