Piana: Biała, drobnopęcherzykowa. Bardzo ładnie oblepia szkło. Kolor: Opalizujące złote. Zapach: Kwiatowy zmieszany z zapachem starego potu. Chmielowe nuty cytrusowe. Spora estrowość w typie świeżych śliwek, moreli. Smak: Stosunkowo spora podbudowa. Sporo przyjemnej cytrusowej kwiatowości. Dość intensywne nuty rozpuszczalnikowe. Tekstura: Bardzo gładkie. Nie pozostawia osadu ani ściągania. Nasycenie: Minimalne. Goryczka: Umiarkowanie ponad średnią. Pijalność: Ponad średnią. Pierwsze festiwalowe piwo nie położyło mnie na łopatki, aczkolwiek było dość ciekawe. Na plus należy zaliczyć ciekawy kwiatowo-cytrusowy aromat chmielowy. Niestety jego odbiór zakłócał dość wyraźny zapach "skarpetkowego" potu, świadczący prawdopodobnie o użyciu chmielu kiepskiej jakości. W smaku bardzo łatwe w odbiorze - dzięki miłej owocowości i lekkiej konsystencji. Nuty rozpuszczalnika kojarzące się też z lakierem do podłogi nie były tak bardzo uciążliwe, jak można by sądzić.

(cask) pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a creamy white head. aroma of grapefruit and lemons, slightly husky, with a hint of green tea and yeast. flavour is mostly the same, lots of herbal hops, with hints of green tea, honey and muesli in the light-bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] My first beer from this brewery pours an attractive solid yellow gold with a moderate white head & middling fizz. There’s lots of hops here- an explosion of different flavours when the beer hits your tongue. There’s pine, melon, salt and seaweed, kiwi, lime and grapefruit. There’s lots of fruitiness, but defintiely a big hit of a rocky Cornish bay on a warm day - an unusual impression for a beer from a landlocked county! This is really good - an exciting, unusual beer that’s complex and stuffed full of flavour with a tingly mouth-puckering dryness and bitterness in the finish. A bold assertion of where British brewing is now at, which really needs a more modern, vibrant pump clip to draw attention to it. Well done - are all Lymestone’s beers this good? If so, I want more!

Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 18/04/13. A blonde beer with a white head and lace. Nice citrussy NZ hopping. Oranges, limes and a little soap in the mouth. Nice malt backbone gives good body. Hoppy aroma is good too. Tasty and well put together.
