BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
[cask at the 2008 SRAF] One of Harviestoun’s lesser-seen seasonals, given a run out at the 2008 Scottish Real Ale Festival. Pale amber beer with a decent head, aromas of grapefruit and sweet malt. It reminded me of a touch of Bitter&Twisted and a touch of Schiehallion – quite zingy on the palate from the hops, but fading into a long, slightly sweet aftertaste. Nice enough though [21062008] 700th rating

Clear gold beer. Dry and crisp palate. Nice level of hops. Spicy bitterness with a trace of grapefruit. Quite a bitter aftertaste.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at Baker Street ‘Sporks.
Clean dark gold with a thin white head. Very bready with a slight hint of diacetyl giving it a wholemeal and butter character. Decent hops but they are just not supported well. Harviestoun can do a LOT better.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Pale amber with a decent white head that left plenty of lacing. Citrus hop aroma with a touch of summer fruit. Flavour had some grapefruit, elderflowers and a decent dry finish.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2009
Cask, half pint at JDWs Unit 5,Victoria. Copper-golden. Lacing head. Dry fruit hoppy aroma. Fine blend of fruits like grapefruit, lemon and orange in flavour. Dry bittersweet endnotes. Refreshing and easy to drink (London, 05.05.2009).

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Cask handpull at Hinckley Spoons. Red gold with a flat white lid and speckled with lace. Good wring of lychee and nettley hop in the nose with added caramel. Totally flat with a pleasant mellow rub of soapy citrus hop; lychee and stewed tea wth a punchy bitterness softening into slate, oats and lingering malted milk biscuit. Robustly hopped and balanced but not their best.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2009
Cask handpull at The Hope Tap, JDW, Reading. Paleish gold, thick creeam head. Nettle hop blond beer. Quite harsh on finish. It’s an ok slightly sweaty beer, but very bitter hoppy finish, especially for the ABV, quite spicy.
