3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel/bright orange in appearance. Aromas are fruity, citrus and dry with some hops bite. Flavours are spicy oranges, sulphur and the bitterness of orange skin on finish. A good Summer drink (even though it was raining at the time of drinking).

My favourite Harviestoun (cask conditioned at The Commercial Inn, Dunfermline, Scotland). Hoppy, tart, spicy, slightly metallic. And again: hoppy, tart...

Golden, small head. Sour aroma with citrus and elder. Falvor brings foral touches, with elder and citrus. A little thin and with a watery finish.

Beer #25 at Dartford Beer Festival, with SilkTork and Duff. Good aroma balance between malt and hops. Much the same on the palate. A pleasant clean and refreshing beer, but nothing special. Cask (gravity dispense).

Cask@Dartford BF. A bit dissaponting to be honest. Thin and grainy, with a touch of tangy hops in the finish, pretty grainy. Light salty finish, a bit thin.

Cask @ Viking Gabriella (ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki)
Golden/amber with a small but creamy head. Grassy, herbal aroma with some citrus notes. Nice hoppy flavour with good bitterness in the aftertaste and a fruity note adds to complexity. Light refreshing palate

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Hoppy aroma, fruity flavour, nice body... uhm, sorry that’s the waitress ... sweet (the beer too). Nice hoppy, flowery aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask Conditioned, at Hamilton Hall, London.
Cloudy orange coloured body with a detergent styled head (patchy froth). Crappy aroma, strong bitterness. Americans would die if they were handed this and told it was an IPA. It miles away from the hoppy style that they’re used to and quite frankly its crap beer regardless. Don’t care for the venue either.

Amber color with small but steady creamy head. Aroma is grassy hops. Freshing hop bitterness, balanced palate with bitter aftertaste. Welldone IPA but a bit watery.
