COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Christmas.
It may be cold outside, but there’s no time like the present to try Stone Cold (4.7%), this seasons copper coloured cracker from the Lymestone Brewery. Sacks full of Finest Pale malt, Crystal, Wheat and Oats deliver crisp biscuit flavours with light toast and toffee notes. Sweetness is balanced by spicy, bitter Millennium and Styrian Goldings hops giving pine, lemon and citrus flavours.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Mar 2013 - Amber/Copper in colour. Malty; biscuity malts and caramel. Fruity; lemon and orange citrus. Hoppy; earthy and spicy peppery hops. Malty fruity with a mild hop bitterness. OK. Drinkable.

Finn (4263) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
NWAF 23 Jan 13. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum. Svak aroma. Litt frukt. Smaken er som et søtt sukkertøy med antydning til flatbrød i ettersmaken.

Martin243 (785) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Pint at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Clear dark gold with a dense white head. Barely discernible aroma. Slightly fruity with some demerara sugar sweetness, balanced by hop bitterness, but ultimately dull. The promised flavours are quite muted, as if they’re afraid of giving offence.

evergreen0199 (2072) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Cask at Metropolitan Bar(W’Spoons), Baker Street, London. An amber/brown coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Malty, fruity aroma. Tastes of caramel, malty, fruity, spice, almost peppery. Quite an interesting brew this one.

BlackHaddock (3895) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons on 12 Feb 2013. Mahogany body, bright and clean looking with a deep creamy head: the head was both creamy in texture as well as colour. The head left some good, thick lacing as the beer level fell away. The smell and taste were of roasted malts. Brown bread and home-made biscuity sort of aroma really. Dry and almost unsweetened feel to the flavours and mouthfeel. Mild bitterness towards the end but otherwise a weird mixed fruit/malt combination that didn’t really excite me.

Rune (8180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2013
Half pint shared with Finn, hand pulled cask at The National Winter Ales Festival. A golden-brown body to a bright, naked surface. Aroma of bread-like malts, semi-sweet. Spiced fruity taste joined by brown sugar. Bittersweet malty finish, long-lived. Likable (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

wimpyjoe (4152) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Cold served clear golden ale. Full bodied with small head. Has a very mild pale aroma and character in its taste but also malty. Mainly a bitterness for flavour.

mr_h (2930) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Cask by handpump at Counting House, Glasgow - clear yellow, thin off-white head, some lacing, bit watery, bland, floral hop

Cask (CWAF2012)
Honey aroma, bright - nice and uplifting. Gold, small head. Straw-ey hop taste. Quite dry. Pretty good. Slightly dusty hop finish. Not fancy, but nice.

Nocturne (833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Cask at JDW. Lovely deep amber bitter with a small head that leaves plenty of lacing. Smooth toffee, a hint of fruit and a traces of spices. Enjoyable.
