A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Light gold colour with large white head that lasted throughout. Nice Citrus (grapefruit) and malt aroma with a hint of flowers. Good balance of malt and hop in the taste with the hoppiness just winning out. Good long, dry finish. An excellent all-rounder.

Sigmund (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. ABV is 4.5%. Bottle conditioned. Deep golden colour, huge white head. Lovely hoppy aroma with notes of citrus / grapefruit and pineapple. The flavour is also distinctly hoppy throughout, with grapefruity notes, but there is also a tolerable malty base. Refreshing, even though I drank it a bit too warm. The excellent Durham Brewery proves they can brew good beers with a moderate ABV too.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Deep amber colovur nice tanned thick head. Aroma is lovely sweet orange fruit taste to follow with a fresh zesty spicy thing and a slight dry bitterness. Well balanced with a good body :-) Great beer

Good pale ale appearance with a malty/lemony/alcoholic aroma. The flavour is hopped with a dry and slightly citric finish. A very good beer.

Another cracking beer from Durham. Bottle conditioned from Open All Hours, Keswick. Sparkling, golden, rocky persistant head. Aroma delightful - grapefruit, spice, hint of yeast. Goes down a treat with a long dry finish. Yummy.

3.9
Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - APR 26, 2010
Golden with orange hues and a creamy lasting white head. Nice hoppy nose, fresh and inviting, very quenching and perfectly balanced between a sweet fruity and a bitter peppery end.
