Beer Review – Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted

During the summer, I had the good fortune to try the Harviestoun Old Engine Oil, so when I saw the Bitter & Twisted at Roger Wilco, I jumped at the chance to try another Harviestoun product. Here is what Harviestoun has to say about their Bitter & Twisted:

It is a delightfully refreshing blond beer with a finish that is like a twist of lemon. Bitter & Twisted has a very fresh hoppy profile and the judicious use of aromatic Hersbrucker and the spicy Challenger. The distinctive finish comes from late hopping with Stryian Goldings, making Bitter & Twisted very drinkable indeed.

I found the Bitter & Twisted to have the following characteristics…

  • Appearance: Cloudy golden with good foam.
  • Aroma: Smells like a beer.
  • Taste: Average taste with an interesting finish.
  • ABV: 4.2%

While not in a class with the Old Engine Oil, the Bitter & Twisted was a very drinkable beer. I would envision this as a very respectable session beer.
