Beer Review – Harviestoun’s Bitter and Twisted

May 13th, 2014 by in Beer Reviews, Everything


Well, it has been quite a while since there was a beer review, and now that we are coming into the summer months, yes I know spring has just started, but we can hope summer is around the corner, it just seems to be good timing to do another beer review.


This beer review is from a beer that many people probably haven’t heard of, Bitter and Twisted, from Harviestoun brewery.  This beer comes to us care of Scotland, and it is worth the trip over for us to enjoy.  Bitter and Twisted is an IPA, with an alcohol percentage of 4.2%, so it’s not that heavy at all, and great for that nice beverage after a long day ride..


When the beer is poured into a glass, if you are classy like that to pour into a glass, has a golden yellow colour.  Imagine a golden yellow colour, and that’s what the beer looks like in a glass….   When you smell the beer, and it is completely normal to do a smell test prior to drinking a beer, but it has somewhat of a citrusy type of smell.  Almost like shoving your face into a lemon, orange mix and taking a big whiff of air….


Now to the most important part of the beer.  The bottle.  It is brown.  When you drink the beer it also has a taste which comes in handy from time to time.  When you take a swig of the beer, you are first hit with a hint of lemon, and hops taste.  Not overpowering hops, but they were there for sure.  The Bitter name isn’t fully represented in the beer, but it’s just a name.  The taste of the beer overall was awesome, not much else to say about that.


Rating:  4.75 out of 5


Would you buy a case of this beer:  Yes I would, they are hard to come by but if you can find a case I’d do it for sure.

Would you recommend this to a friend?  With a rating of 4.75 out of 5, I would assume that speaks for itself.

Was the beer hoppy?  It had a hint of hops, not a lot but subtle.

Why are there no ‘B’ batteries?  That is a great question….
