Cask at Bishop’s Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint.
Pours pale golden with thick white head. Malty and biscuity strong pale ale. Easy to drink but lacking in bitterness and hop character and therefore equally easily forgettable.

Taste of grain, bread, barley, light citrus notes of lemon and earthy hops, light bitterness. Light bodied and flat carbonation. A light vegetable and earthy bitterness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Excellent beer. Can see why it was a Champion. Vanilla aroma pale golden appearance. Subtle in taste as bitterness starts low and builds. Lovely citrus flavours. Seems mild on palate but as you down the pint it gets better. Very moreish. Lovely beer and will definitely drink again. Surprisingly score went down on second pint for aroma and overall. Still very good though.
