Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint.
Very pale amber beer with a smooth white head. The nose promises sweet tropical fruit but surprisingly the flavour is far more led by crisp, bitter cereal grains. Smooth and clean it is, but really nothing special. I know Durham can do better than this.

[Cask at Horseshore Hotel, Egton Bridge, N Yorks] Pale, slightly cloudy gold with a moderate white head. Lemony with some grass. Smooth & pleasant enough to drink, but rather bland and forgettable.

Cask at Fanny’s Ale and Cider House, Shipley/Saltaire 04-05-07. Very, very pale golden colour, with a huge Yorkshire head that was topped up straight away. Decent hoppy bitter beer that I tried alongside the Outlaw Mayflower (Roosters brewery) both good breweries. This one just nicked it for me it was in very good nick and had good citrus flavours and nice bitterness, not as good as some of theirs but still a very good effort.

Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival, April 2006. Pale gold colour. Light citrus aroma. Quite soft palate with gentle citrus, subtle fruit and just a touch of dry malt. Clean rather than crisp. Decent balance but, perhaps lacks a bit of depth. Not one of Durham’s stand-out beers but a pleasant, easy-drinking brew.
