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

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 (271) - 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

jmgreenuk (4022) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013
Cask at the Birmingham Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak stale malt with a hint of creamy caramel. The flavour is weak bitter with a light bodied watery palate and not much else. I feel that this beer has the potential to be so much more but didnít quite make it.

jamesie1857 (1335) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Hazy yellow body, pillowy white head. Nose is a mix of citrus and pepper, with a nice spicy first hit in the taste. A bit more body in this and it would be great.
