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.

Martin243 (1065) - 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 theyre afraid of giving offence.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons on 12 Feb 2013. Mahogany body, bright and clean looking with a deep creamy head: the head was both creamy in texture as well as colour. The head left some good, thick lacing as the beer level fell away. The smell and taste were of roasted malts. Brown bread and home-made biscuity sort of aroma really. Dry and almost unsweetened feel to the flavours and mouthfeel. Mild bitterness towards the end but otherwise a weird mixed fruit/malt combination that didnt really excite me.
