Lymestone Brewery – Pudding Stone 4.8%
The Lymestone Brewery is a micro-brewery near Stone, Staffordshire.
This Christmas ale is a pale lemon colour, with a malt aroma. It has a strong grapefruit taste, typical of the use of American hops and is like one of the new craft American Pale Ales.
The, in spite of its name, is not really what I would expect of a Christmas ale, lacking the seasonal spiciness and darker malty colour and taste that makes one think of Chrstmas.
