Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.55/pint.
Very pale, straw-coloured beer with a smooth, white head. Weakly floral and sweet tropical fruit aroma and taste, with the taste also have a little crisp, biscuity, grainy backing. Light, refreshing and perfectly drinkable, but oh so dull.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Yellow gold with white head. Quite a thin beer, slightly watery with a certain flowery, perfumed note. Some fruitiness later but little more than moving it from bland. Pretty average.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1/2 at the Tilley stone Gateshead. Very light yellow with a white head. Floral aroma. Citrus and cereal flavour. Light bodied, slightly sour. Quite refreshing, but seems at odds with the season: Shouldn’t Christmas beer be dark and comforting?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow coloured ale with a small golden glow. Has a very small head and full of citrus notes that give it a tangy sour taste.
