Bottle at home ... very pale yellow ... thin white head ... light fruity lemon nose ... soapy lemon fruits ... light juicy ... light bitter linger ... quite hoppy ... very clean and refreshing ... probably should have had this a little colder ... but quite nice

harrisoni (13793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Golden with thin white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus. Blond style of beer. I like this, but then again I think that Durham make some good beers. Nice blond citrus hoppy beer. Drinkable and moreish. Has enough hop on the end to make you want to take another taste.

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Cask, 3.8% at GBBF08. OK dusty malt aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Good frothy white head. Thin mouthfeel. Grainy fruitiness, hint of dust. Quite boring.
