Purchased at Harvey's Brewery Shop, coming in a 500ml brown bottle, BB 02/2011, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pale amber in colour, coming with great clarity, light and constant carbonation and a thin off-white beer head settling to a thin rim to last.
S: very much like most Harveys' paler ales, the melted-sugar like sweet edge of maltiness is inseparable from the yeasty influence, underlined by an intense flow of citric fruitiness and steamed sweet taro. Quite simple, and the combination doesn't stand out as a different ale from many of Harveys' products...
T: a softly carbonated swallow of mild malts, sour-ish fruitiness, taro, and dry-ish yeastiness leads towards a pleasantly dry-ish finish with a bit more aftertaste of boiled taro and random hop bitterness. It's very pleasant, simple, and also well-made, but not quite interesting due to the static drinking experience.
M&D: refreshingly carbonated, light bodied, easy to drink. Although the flavour is almost... neutral, the overall drinking experience comes pleasant enough, perhaps due to the yeasty elements in the taste. An understated product all in all.
