Cricketers Arms, Berwick Village, East Sussex

Martin the MildmanGood28 Jul 2012 An appropriate choice I thought. Yellow in colour with soft hoppiness, biscuity malt and a hint of citrus fruit. My score 15/20.
WittendenExcellent21 May 2011 A fine golden ale, with a decent floral hop. Harveys seem to be firing on all cylinders at the moment.

IanGood23 Jun 2006 Gold with thinnish white head. Harveys yeast aroma. Good malts in mouth. Hoppy dry finish. Don’t underestimate that Harvey’s aroma. Toffee malt which is light and delightful. Good supping beer. Light toffee flavour is a classic
