Got it to drink at home from the cancelled "beer on the wye" festival. Clear golden, Smells like bubblegum, tastes sharp, fruity, hoppy. Very refreshing and easy drinking

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’08. Clear gold with white head. I have enjoyed Millstone beers ever since i first came across them 4 years ago. This is a big floral beer, a good strong but restrained body, light malts carrying the floral, zesty, grapefruit hops. Really very good and my beer of this festival.

Cask at NWAF, 2011. Golden pour with a white head. Nice aromas of citrus, peach, mango. Flavours of orange zest, lemon peel, a little toffee, cloves and crisp red apples. Great hop laden mouthfeel. Full on fruity-hoppy finish. Good stuff.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Delicious hoppy, clean beer. Citrus hops, quite strong and full. Good nettley finish, and the overall impression here is like a very good APA. This is excellent, beautiful stuff.

Handpulled at the Cask & Cutler, Sheffield. Fierce competition for this, locals at the bar were sinking this all lunchtime. And why not; golden body with an aroma just the right side of sweet perfume, fresh sorbet body, crunchy hopped finish. Beer of the trip for me.

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 8, 2011
Cask @ 12th Ayrshire Real Ale Festival, Troon 2011. Clear golden colour, white head. Nose is grapefruit, hoppy, passion fruit, bit of sourness. Flavour is hoppy, grapefruit, smooth maltiness, bit of candy, slightly sour and fairly bitter. Smooth and well balanced. This is a cracker.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Marble. Clean gold with a thin white head, plenty of lace and really good condition. Assertive dusky hoppage and some really good supporting malt. Very well balanced. Very drinkable. Excellent stuff and certainly the best I’ve had from millstone.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Pure gold, level Persil head. Aroma of grated citrus rind- grapefruit and lemon. My kind of beer. Some fruit syrup sweetness as from a can recently vacated by mandarins, grapefruit and lychees..but balanced by husky, shampoo bitterness. Biscuit and flowers finish squeezed with lemon. Lovely.
