On the lighter end of winter ales. Malty, hoppy. Hints of pepper. Fairly understated really.

Cask hand pulled in JDW Southampton Subtle Caramel aroma thin white head golden copper colour. Cold and dry to sweet salty seaweed like a day at the beach in winter takes your breath away and leaves you lingering on a oyster with orange sauce

The_Osprey (7998) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Lymestone Stone Cold’, 4.7%. Pale golden yellow, still and clear with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma is a little sulphurous and farty, mossy stones and grains. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is buttery malt, straw, touch of vanilla, light grains, sugary. A little gluey in the finish. Not fantastic overall.

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.

2.4
Finn (7547) - 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.

2.8
Martin243 (1159) - 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.

3.4
evergreen0199 (3369) - 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.
