COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust, flavoursome beer is brewed from a blend of pale, crystal and wheat malts. The strong, fruity character is finely balanced by an overlying hoppiness.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2007
Cask, The Highcross., Leicester. Hazy gold with a white head. Aromas are light, spicy and fruity with clean hops. Flavours are fruity with soft malts. Marmalade with some oranges. Spritzy and fresh with some yeastiness. Decent.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Clean light brown with a thin and bubbly head. Fruity aroma with lots of strawberry and slight sweet malt underneath. Similar flavour but including strong bitter hops. Slight bacon fat note lets it down. Bitter yet sweet finish. A little odd but ok.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Clear copper with thick head. Raspberry and hop aroma. Smooth is a little watery in mouth. And served too cold. Then a good aggressive herby hop on the finish. This is how I remember Harviestoun beers being like. Good easy drinking hoppy beers. Particularly the hoppy finish. Just needs a bit more body to be very good. And then I asked for the sparkler to be taken off for the second pint. My god, what a difference. Suddenly more herby hop on aroma. Still a little watery in mouth but the stinging finishing hop is a lot more characterful with better hop flavours and some sweaty sox.
