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. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2007
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear amber colour with a little stable foam; dynamic aroma showing bitter almonds, yeast and grapefruit; highly carbonated; solidly malty with a robust bitterness; dry and long hoppy fruity finish - a nice one MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2007
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle thanks to Chris. Golden blonde with a slim white head, The expected spice and sweet notes all the way, typical of this brewer. Nice grassy hops to with just a lick of the alcohol. Long bitter finish. Pretty tasty. ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle -- NIce cloudy golden yellow typical of the style with a medium fluffy white head with a little retention and lacing. Lots of fruit in the aroma: passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus in general, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. Vaguely creamy palate with some noticeable carbonation. The flavour is a repeat of the aroma but with a nice bitter finish and quite prominent alcohol. Quite good. kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2007
Exceedingly disappointing beer for the price and previous ratings. Poured a golden colour with a poor head, fairly hop driven but without the spiciness you usually get from APA’s thin body with an overwhelming flavour of bad homebrew. In fact i threw it out and opened up a homebrew and enjoyed it much more.

Golden, with a nice head. The aroma has fruity, hoppy, caramel and alcohol notes, and I find the same in the flavour, that has a lot of fruit notes. The finish is nice and bitter. The alcohol is a bit too dominant IMO. thewolf (12535) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a pale orange with a big foamy white head. Aroma is ligtly sweet, but with quite a lot of woody hops. Creamy mouthfeel and low carbonated. Taste is round, sweet, malty, but finishes quite bitter with a nice flowery, oaky and beechy edge. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2006
