Beer Review: Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted

Since trying Harviestoun's Old Engine Oil, I have been looking forward to sampling some of their other beers. Their blonde beer, Bitter & Twisted, was next up for sampling and I have to say that it did not dissapoint.

The beer pours a brilliant clear strawberry blond colour with a small white head. The aroma is dominated by lovely Hallertau Hersbruker noble hops with a nice citrussy background. Light bodied with a very clean taste and very refreshing on the palate. A very smooth refreshing taste, nicely balanced hop profile with a nice smooth background bitterness.

A great summer session beer (only 4.2% ABV). Not surprising that this beer was a WBA (World Beer Awards) winner for best ale in 2007. Highly recommended. This and Old Engine Oil are two great beers from Harviestoun and I look forward to sampling their other wares.
