DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
’Kingstone Gold’, cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton. Dusty blonde with a pure white foam. Honeycomb and lemon lockets aroma; flavour distinctly honeyed and lingeringly biscuity with a good bite of bittering hop. Clean and crisp but ends up tasting far too like H+L Lockets for its own good.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head. ARoma is very fruity and slightly wooden. Flavour is grass, hoppy fruit and some vanillaish notes. Not very exciting.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF2007. A golden coloured beer with a decent hoppy aroma at first but then a bit of cream and a bit of fart creep in. The taste is also suffering from sulphur notes. Malts are not good. Disappointing.

Although this ale has some of the tastes you would expect it fails to deliver them in a coherent and sustained manner. Overall a not unpleasant ale but not in any way memorable, should have tried harder.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Bottled. Fresh citrus aroma, slight hint of hops. Golden in colour with a thin white head. Slight hint of honey, clean crisp taste. Smooth texture with a pleasant finish. I found this beer hard to describe, High in carbonation yet smooth, fresh and easy to drink. A very enjoyable beer. Once again another impressive ale from Kingstone.
