This strong and dark ruby beer is one of Lymestones finest, deservingly winning awards three years in a row! Chocolate and fruit flavours create a mild stout taste with a bitter finish, there is a moderate head with this beer. Unlike some dark beers the malt is not overpowering and compliments the chocolate flavour perfectly. A very refreshing pint and a good session beer, not overpowering like some of the stronger beers.

Traditional ale that stands up well against the designer styles. Dark ruby coloured ale, lacks a decent head but its mild sweet character makes up for it. Medium bodied with a medium bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2012. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark garnet in colour with a thin but creamy off white head. Hints of roast malt and bitter chocolate notes in the slight aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex give a rich maltloaf base with juicy berry fruits evident. Bramble, plum and then tart woody redcurrants come to the fore as they start to intensify. Strong hop presence noted with resiny bitterness coming through in the dry almost peppery aftertaste. Finish has the malt just about edging it with roast malt, oak cask and chocolate flavours rolling in the mouth. A decent Old Ale in style and well recommended.
