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. It’s 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.

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. I’m sure an off bottle but the beer tasted quite nice.

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.

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.
