Next to no head raspberries dominate well rounded but something synthetic about the taste bottle.

Cimbasso (558) - - DEC 29, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head.Raspberry aroma, and a taste of biscuity malts with raspberries. Some grassy notes and a dry, bitter finish. The dryness of the hop taste is slightly at odds with the sweetness of the raspberries, but this is, nevertheless, a quite drinkable beer.

jackafholmes (883) - - AUG 25, 2014
Pint from York pub, golden lion I think. Light amber ale with white frothy head. Reeks of raspberries, like the raspberry icecream syrup. Taste is same, nice amount of bitterness to offset the sweet. Bit of a shock at first, but it grew on me as the slurps piled up.
