Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.75/pint.
Pours clear light golden with a smooth, white head. Muted aroma of wheat, straw and a touch of citrus. The taste is slightly bitter, especially on the finish with earthy, grassy flavours, but on the whole it’s a dull golden ale. Mediocrity in a glass.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - golden with a thin lacy head.
Nose - honey and lemon, but honey dominates.
Taste - more lemon but again honey dominates. A bit of astringent malt in the background.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a dry tangy, yet cloying finish.
Overall - this is like a cream ale, in actual fact.
