Very drinkable ale but not as good as Stone the Crows which I’ve previously had from Lymestone. Peppery, slightly fruityness, a dry finish, refreshing and average.

On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A quite dark blonde colour with a pillowy white head. Aroma of peppery hops, caramel and malt. Quite malty flavour also with quite prominent bitterness and a dry finish. Just OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’10, gravity dispensed. Reddish copper with white head. The first thing you notice with this is how strongly bitter it is, cheek drawing, lip pursing bitterness with a dry malty background. The Amarillo’s give hints of the wild west. A decent brew.
