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.
