AshtonMcCobb (2939) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
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.

Cimbasso (253) - - 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
