berkshirejohn (5304) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Amber with a thin white head; rather muted, gentle aroma, piney, citrus, and spicy; full bodied and hoppy from the start, quite spritzy in the mouth, with a rough, woody flavour; and a rather nettley finish.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Clear blonde covered by a sticky white lasting cover, hugely effervescent looks. A fresh aroma that blends floral, grainy and herbal notes. A bit straightforward and despite the aroma’s apparent freshness, it does not keep up in mouth and this feels unusual for Durham. Perfumey, mineral, fruity palate with a firm bitterness in the finish – lilac and citrus fruits. Medium bodied and refreshing.

fiulijn (16659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2008
Hazy golden color; big frothy head, persistent. Dubious aroma, with paper, wet soil, country fields and grass, glue; then grassy hops. Medium body strength, but quite dry mouthfeel; it has a dry toffee flavor that along with the strong bitterness creates the effect of liquorice, mainly at the end. Strongly hopped, but not impressive.
