IanGood18 May 2010 Harvey's yeast and malt on aroma. Lovely light mlaty beer. Stunning. So downable.
Martin the MildmanExcellent13 May 2010 Light red/amber mild with soft hoppiness and biscuity malt and the characteristic Harveys yeasty flavour. My score 16/20.
IanExceptional20 Jun 2008 Reddy amber colour. Farty Harvey's yeast aroma, then this lovely light mild flavour. Oh this is scintillating. So drinkable it's untrue. Foret Brew Dog Edge or Thornbridge Hall Sapphire, this is how to make a low ABV beer. Brilliant. Lovely toffee malt and then some hop on finish. Brilliant.

Martin the MildmanExcellent09 Jun 2011 Sweet and fruity with some cereal malt flavours. Good easy drinking light mild. My score 16/20.
Martin the MildmanGood04 Jun 2009 More fruity than last year, from 3 different pub samples recently. Now has a dry, appley finish. Seems to have lost the characteristic Harvey's maltiness. My score 15/20, down from 16-17 last year.

WittendenExceptional21 May 2011 An excellent light mild:that Harveys tang, followed by a subtle hop aspect.I could drink this all day (and remain coherent). Wonderful. It reminded me a bit of a Rayment's light mild from years back.On gravity, too!
