COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled: 500ml only. Also available on draught throughout February.

Kiss was first brewed in 1999 to celebrate the return of Rodin’s famous sculpture to Lewes (from where it was commissioned) for a summer-long exhibition.

A Valentine beer brewed with malted barley, pinhead oats and a marriage of English and continental hops. It is the only beer that Harveys produce using oats in the mash, creating a unique mealy character.

Contains: Barley and Oats

EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Bottle from the brewery shop, Lewes. Clear chestnut brown beer with a medium off white head which dissipates quickly. Nose is biscuit malt, gingernut snaps, fruity rhubarb, caramel, toasted grains, spice. Taste is dried ginger powder, caramel, biscuit malt, spice, slight fruitiness, slight rhubarb. Not as immense as the cask version but this is not a bad approximation.

Erzengel (9497) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle from the brewery shop in Lewes. Smooth and round malty beginning. Fresh smooth, nice with hints of grain. Not too sweetish, round with a nice and intense bitterness. The Golden Ale aromatic is smooth, mild grainy sweetish in the aftertaste. Nice.

AshtonMcCobb (6913) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Harvey’s online. Appearance - golden with nice lace. Nose - pungent citrus, maybe getting towards tamarind. Taste - loads of green herby notes Palate - medium bodied or so. Creamy and fairly fresh on the finish. Overall - it’s not bad, it’s not good, it has more character than plain water.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from the Harvey’s bottle shop. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is toasty, grainy, buttered cheap white bread and straw. The taste is crisp, lightly bitter, straw, floral, sweet dough, pale grain, earth and light lemon rind with a dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Pretty basic stuff. Not bad, just plain. One of my least favourite from Harvey’s.

2.8
worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Clear medium to light amber with a thin light lacy fair slightly lasting white head. Smells of pale malt with fruit, caramel and light herbal tones. Medium watery body. Not too sweet but nice with brown sugar, malt and fruit. Smooth and buttery. Not sure if this is now conditioned but it doesn’t seem to have any carbonation. Nice beer.
