Cask at the Claude Du Vall, Camberley, 01/02/14. Lightly hazed copper with a moderately appointed light beige covering. Nose is stoned fruit, biscuit, earthy, nutty, bready malt. Taste comprises bitter orange, bread dough, earthy, toffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter pangs in a semi drying closure. Drinkable but not much in the way of depth or character.

Cask in the Tilley Shilling, Farnborough. A mahogany coloured ale with a good cream head. Bittersweet flavour with toffee, pear drop and some pine notes on the finish. Quite full flavoured. Drinkable and quite refreshing for a darker ale.

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.

2.6
ManVsBeer (10251) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
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.
