Scopey (13010) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Cask at Royal Oak, Borough. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The aroma is rich, wood, earth, old leather sofa, pretty fruity actually, loads of soft red berry and musty basement The taste is rich, earthy, bitter, leather, biscuit, red berry, leaves, bit of spice, chewy malt, cereal and wood with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and lightly oily mouth - feel. Good depth, especially apparent on the aroma. Enjoyable stuff.

EdKing (2435) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Half on cask in Cats Back, Wandsworth. Clear pale light chestnut brown, with a medium soft cream foam head which stays. Nose is big fruity Harveys yeast character (rhubarb, English berry, earthiness) with toasted malt grains, cereal chaff, nutty, biscuity malt. Taste is fruity, rhubarb, citrus hop, tropical fruit, biscuit malt, berry tangy, dry-ish acidic hop, grapefruit rind. Perfect cask condition. Another brilliant Harveys beer.
