Cask; Very occasional.
A partner to Canny Lad. This is a ruby coloured malty beer in the local North East style. Six different malts, English and American hops give a satisfying ruby beer.

Cask. Deep ruby ale with a thick light tan head. Nose is incredibly malty with a light grassy hop. First mouthful is full of malt with some hay/strawlike notes but then out bursts the hoppiness. Really well balanced and makes the sweetness get blasted by the bitterness and then finish with a nice bittersweet dryness.

[Cask from The Three Judges] Deep amber colour with a small head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt, lots of esters, berry fruits. body feels on the watery side, fruity palate, touch of dryness.

Aroma guives honey a touch of roasted malts, grassy. Taste gives more grass than expected, but to be honest this beer is durhamed out its nut.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2003
(Cask conditioned). A brand new beer from the enterprising brewers of Durham, sampled at the Wear Valley CAMRA beer festival. (Room temperature). CAMRA stated the ABV to be 4.2%, brewery website says 3.9% (possibly not updated - they speak of the beer as a project in the making). CAMRA write "Bonnie" (which is logical), brewery website says "Bonny" - I guess they have their reasons. Low (natural) carbonation. Reddish brown colour. Malty aroma and flavour, moderate hops. The North East English style is really a marriage between English bitter and Scottish "heavy". Not a bad brew (quite good, actually), but a beer as malty as this would profit on a higher ABV.
