Not the Champion Beer of Britan

I spotted in Morrisons a bottled version of the current Champion Beer of Britain Castle Rock Harvest Pale. In the bottled it's 4.3% ABV compared to the draught at 3.8. I found it nice but unexciting (am I the new Jilly Goolden or what?). It's hard to get bottled beers as good as the cask version and even with the increase in strength the Harvest Pale wasn't outstanding. I would buy it again though, but I really need to find it on draught. 


  1. I rather like it, personally. I'll admit it's definitely not as good as the cask version, but as a beer in its own right I think it's a good one.

  2. I did enjoy it but you can't beat cask for sessionable strength beers.
