Nice lasting white head. Light fruity aroma with some hoppiness. Clear pale color. Nice light malty taste with a litle bitterness than normal real ale. Tutti frutti taste and some typical english hoppiness. Medium body and big drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate. Gravicask at Le Gothique.
Golden brown with a thin, bubbly off white head. Struggly a little for condition. Nice sharp hoppage with some pale lager like malt. A pleasing faint sourness that is probably not supposed to be there but a this point it’s working pretty well. Faint smoky notes in the finish. Nice enough but it’s right on the boarderline of being tired.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Priory Arms, Stockwell, London, 17 Apr 2009) Dark copper colour with brief, white head. Malty nose with apricots, dusty hops and a hint of sulphur. Malty taste with notes of apricots, biscuits and dusty hops in a fairly dry finish. A decent bitter, but on the boring side. I expect more from this excellent brewer.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden. Slight appley nose. Light bodied with slender, yet chewy malt. Carefully hopped with green apples disturbing the delicate balance. Growing late piney bitterness. Not the best brew from Harviestoun ever.

On cask at the Rake. Glad i popped in for this one! doesn’t look much in the glass but flavours and aromas are great! I’m guessing this is another brit brewery experimenting with US hops, fruity zesty aroma followed by solid lemon passionfruit flavours and a solid bitterness....would love to drink this a lot!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 18/03/09. Copper coloured with a decent white head that left lacing down the glass. Aroma of summer fruits and citrus hops. Flavour began with a touch of malty sweetness, before more citrus and leafy hops leading to a decent dry finish. Another good Harviestoun beer.
