pilsnerrogge (2413) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2005
(Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm 3,8 %) Pale amber with a slight haze. The head is nothing but a thin lid. Fruity aroma. Medium-bodied with a fruity apricot-bitter flavour. I really wish I could get cask-conditioned ales where I live.

Aroma was typical of harviestoun, grassy and citrus. Taste was similar reasonably dry and bitter, very drinkable, and good amount of flavour for the %.

omhper (18963) - 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.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2010
Cask - The Cider Shed, Norwich. Poured with a huge lasting, frothy and doming off-white head atop a golden orange body. Crisp lemon and grassy hops with some sweet peach and orange. A lovely grapefruit citrus quality about the flavour that lasted well, complimented by sweet tangerine notes. Bright & refreshing yet soft palate texture, light to medium body and a lingering bitter hop finish. Another good Harviestoun golden.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2004
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.
