Cask (backlog). Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and grassy hops along with some sweet bready and caramel malts. Flavour is fruity, floral, herbal and quite sweet maltyness.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with a tang of marmalade. Thin and resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong juicy fruit component with watermelon, kiwi fruit and overipe redcurrants. Dry hop flowers give a bitter resiny aftertaste. Tart redcurrant fruit present in the malty finish. A Golden Ale in appearance but more of an autumnal ale in taste. Reminded me of Kelburns Red Smiddy in flavour. Well recommended.

Aniela (2412) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2011
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm in december 2010. Golden beer with a dark beer taste :-) A nice beer.

TEJA (1306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2011
Thick white foam that lasts till the pint is finnished. Light golden but a litle opque. Small hop aroma with pears. Big fresh bitterness but a litle too long lasting. Good but not as good as some of their other beers.

finol (2192) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2010
Cask at Oliver Twist. Harviestoun delivers just what you expect from a casked golden ale, smooth and refreshing.

KnutAlbert (6136) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
Cask at the Standing Order, Edinburgh. Smooth and easy, might be the sparkler, yet a spledid bitter tail. Herbal and malty.
