COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Als available bottled.
Pale and Dark Crystal Maris Otter malts unite to embrace a motherland of chewy toffee while fruits and berry flavours rush in. Styrian Goldings from the East and Nugget Hops from the West are allied in perfect harmony as pine and citrus hop flavours caress the taste buds.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - APR 10, 2013
A golden hoppy ale, not too bitter and very refreshing, a complex balance of citrus, toffee and berries make for a smooth beer, with a slight bitter finish. There are strong aromas of hop and toffee with this beer, less head than some of the other beers from Lymestone but that helps maintain the balance with this take on a classic bitter. This ale would make a great session beer for the pale bitter lovers.
