imdownthepub (13872) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest 08. Gold to brown with white head. This packs one powerful punch to the tastebuds for the ABV. Light malty body carrying a big grapefruity hop, refreshingly dry and bitter, an excellent beer in my book and could well be my beer of this festival.

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2009
On cask at the Rake. Glad i popped in for this one! doesnt look much in the glass but flavours and aromas are great! Im 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!

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2008
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel, Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma is hoppy with notes of grapefruit. The taste is quite bitter and has some sharp hoppy notes. A pretty good beer as we would expect from Harviestoun.

TEJA (2780) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2009
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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
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 its working pretty well. Faint smoky notes in the finish. Nice enough but its right on the boarderline of being tired.

downender (8286) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
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.
