BeardedAvenger (743) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle at Billís, Guildford. Aroma of malts and apple cider. Gold. No head. Flat looking. A light but sharp bitter with sweet highlights. Acidic fruit. Sugary. Some hops and malts. Light bodied. Watery. Light carbonation. Low key finish. Pretty standard gold but at least it has a bit of bite to it.

The_Osprey (7883) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
275ml bottle at Billís, Cardiff. As íBillís Beerí, brewed at Harveyís Sussex at 4%. Branded very much like a Harveyís beer in its small bottle with the bearded gent on front. Amber orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small ring of off-white head. Aroma is musty rug and stewed apple. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is semisweet toffee, light apple, yeast, tonic water, light metallics in the finish. Has that Harveyís yeast stamp on it. An alright way to wash down some halloumi sticks.

zacgillbanks (5128) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from Mam and Dadís Holiday, Lewes. Pale golden coloured with no head and little carbonation. It has a sweet toffee and floral fruity flavour with a gentle grassy, malty and earthy finish.

Bottle. Pours a light gold colour with a thin white head, light malt aroma with a hint of fruit, taste is light bitterness and with some fruit with a dry fruity finish.

Dopeyngrumpy (3) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015 does not count
Not for me - lacked distinctive flavour and was not fresh enough to be truly refreshing, reminded me mostly of the lower end lagers popular in Spain and Portugal

Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle at Billís on my quest for Harveyís domination.... It pours clear golden with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is clean, toasty pale grain, soft fruits, apple and a touch of stewed orange. The taste is pretty tame...clean, slightly watery, mild bitterness, toasted grain, dry grass, earth, citrus peel and not a whole lot else. Is sort of dry on the finish. Light body and average carbonation. Another one of the poor bottled offerings from Harveyís.

DwarfeD (3450) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
275ml bottle at Billís. Clear golden with a small white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice sweetness with some bitter tones. Caramel, hops, honey and citrus. A nice golden ale.

Bottle at Billís. Jesus this is clean. Almost too clean. A dash of beer with your sparkling water sir? Cheers

Bottle split at JFís, cheers James for this Harveys whale, 23/08/13. Clear pale golden with a thin off white covering. Nose is light yeast, citrus, toasted malts, cereals. Taste comprises grass, citrus fruit, apple skins, toasted malts, earthy. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish with a little bitterness. Ok GB affair - not one Iíd bother revisiting though ... whelmed!

imdownthepub (14468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Bottled 275ml from Bill, cheers. Gold with short lived head. Slightly thin, fruity, orange like beer, there is a grainy vanilla note too. Some grassy notes. Just a little underwhelming.
