COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - MAR 14, 2013
A strange example of a honey beer, there is no real aroma apart from the classic roasted malts but this is not the case for the taste. There are strong caramel and malty flavours which are mellowed by the addition of the lymestone breweries honey. The honey makes the beer slicker than some similar beer and reduces the bitterness, with hints of sweetness. A great amber to brown beer.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle; red amber; flavours of roast and caramel malt, coffee, developing into a fairly rich, warm, bitter and slightly dry finish; the unobtrusive honey is in the background throughout and helps to develop a smooth mouthfeel; not what Iíd expect from a honey beer. Itís the beeís knees.

BlackHaddock (4370) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Tall brown 500ml bottle Best Before End of June 2012: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 2nd May 2012. Looked good: red/amber body, clear and clean, on top a biege foaming head of closely knit bubbles. Pleasant malty smell, no honey aroma though (honey is within the ingrediants). The taste also has malty front (hints of dark chocolate): a hop bitterness soon arrives though and this isnít a sweet brew at all. Full bodied and filling: a fine beer.
