Cask; Seasonal - October. Also available bottled all year round.

Up on the roof of the Lymestone Brewery, the Lymestone bees have been busy making the sweetest honey from local fields and gardens. Literally stung into action, Brad the Brewer has created this rich, dark beer from the Lymestone bees honey and the finest chocolate malt. Velvety chocolate gives way to a balanced bittersweet finish. Easy drinking and very moreish.

Towey1989 (341) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a thin off white head. Light aroma of chocolate, caramel and some fruity malt. Taste of light chocolate, some roasted malts, caramel and raisins. Light bodied, soft carbonation but a watery texture. A bittersweet, fruit, chocolate finish. Tastes similar to a chocolate covered raisin, no honey detected. Little thin too, Lymestone do better beers than this.

Cask@blackcountry arms, walsall. Copper beer with medium head. Aroma of malts, fruit and a little honey. Taste is same with maybe a trace of vinegar. Not sure if this one was at the limits of its life, but still ok ish.

Bottle. Brown with a small head. Slightly sweet with traces of honey as you would expect. Got better the longer I drank it but still not that impressed. Amusing label though.

Situations do change perceptions. It was so hot my hands were sliding over the fretboard due to a slick layer of sweat. So, this may have been better sampled in cooler climes. I love Stone though, beautiful place, nice bike shop I recall.
