Cimbasso (741) - - NOV 21, 2014
Sampled from a 500ml bottle ordered from the brewery. Pale golden colour with a slight white head. This bottle conditioned beer has pleasant floral hops in the aroma. The taste is only slightly malty with wheat giving some extra freshness. Lovely hop tastes, including lemon, lime and grapefruit. Long, mildly bitter finish. Complex and refreshing - all from a beer which is only 3.8%! My first taste of Durham Brewery, and it bodes well for future sampling.

Even though I'm drinking this is in Winter, it tastes of Summer. It's a lovely Golden colour with a light apart lemony aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tom303 (119) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
This beer pours a lovely light golden colour, looks quite lively with a nice creamy tight head. Smells fresh and sweet fruity, suprisingly pungent for a lighter ale. Taste is a overall nice sweet malt with gentle fruit flavours and slight dry bitterness. This is a really tasty light easy drinking ale.

simonblaine (571) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours very light straw colour. Frothy head. Aroma is a weak grainy straw. Taste is much the same, but slightly bitter. Goes down easy, not Durhams best, but easy drinking and passable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
