Bottle. Amber colour with a big tan head. Malty, grassy, florel aroma and a sweet malty, florel, hop taste. Medium body with a very dry finish.

Holmen1 (5843) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en lett og god, velbalansert ipa med fin aroma. Noe kort ettersmak. Ikke totalt overbevisende men med sin lettdrikkelighet kan den fort gi ganglag for sjelen. Skulle vært gøy å prøve den fra cask. Med litt flaks, neste gang på Charlie’s?

SilkTork (5729) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2011 March, 2002 Bottle conditioned. Muddy orange. Citric fruit aroma. Pleasant tingle, though I prefer a softer feel. Muddled yeast and citric fruit flavours, finishing with a bold citric hop bite. Some honey notes. Decent beer. [3.0]
June, 2003 Bottle Conditioned, with Duff & Nuffield. Creamy mouthfeel - smooth. Sweet malt predominant - finish is dry and citric. Not great. [2.9] This was Durham’s first bottled beer and was originally called Millennium City because Durham was 1,000 years old in the year 2000. [3.1]
Oct, 2011 500ml bottle from Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop in Durham. Bottle conditioned. A strong pale ale with a range of hop notes - citric and earthy. Toffee notes in the malt. A pleasant strong ale. Hoppier than average for English ales, but not as hoppy as American. [3.3]

johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2004
This was the first beer this excellent brewery bottled. A bit dissapointing as it was cloudy.This is something I dont mind in a wheat beer but dont feel too comfortable with it in a pale ale.Pleasant hoppiness with some citrus seeping through but the cloudiness still put me of.

Bamsen78 (5336) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours slitly hazy golden with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of citrus and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with citric notes, touches of lemon peel and hints of grass. Bitter finish. A decent, unpretentious IPA.

3.5
Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 25, 2013
[email protected] from beer Ritz
hazy mid amber gold, fluffy off-white head. Herbal earthy hops, full bodied, dry spicey bitterness.
