Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, 3.50/pint. Very pale, straw-coloured beer with a smooth, white head. The aroma is lightly citrusy, while the taste is driven by lemon and floral tones. Its a little watery and overly inoffensive. I know Durham can do much better than this.

No gusher here, nice head. Smells good, looks good amd it has the light bitter taste you would expect from a 4% beer. Gift from uckelman

Many thanks to bobinlondon for this bottle!! A huge gusher upon opening, Obviously a huge head and some time to pour it as it is extremely active. Pours a light golden yellow with an enormous off-white head. The smell is fruit, citrus, grain, grass. The taste is citrus, grain, grass ending crisp and dry. Light in body with carbonation that is quite above average in intensity. Im sure an off bottle but the beer tasted quite nice.

uckelman (652) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Hazy pale yellow, almost the color of grapefruit juce. Wow, extremely lively. The yeast in this bottle must have been busy, because it was just a fountain when I popped the cap. Huge foamy white structural head.Mildly bitter. Medium, slightly oily body. A little bit of lemongrass on the finish. Not bad.

Bottle. Pale lemon/golden hazy with big, semi-densed, white head. Very good lasting. Medium lacing. Aroma of pale malts, citrus, little grassy. Taste is light bitter and sweet malts. Also some lemon, zesty accents noticable. Light body, watery texture, medium carbonation. Finish is semi-bitter and dry.

Bottle from the brewery. Appearance - pale lemon gold with a thin lacy head. Nose - lemon barley water. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish. Overall - not particularly exciting but it does the job.
