Cask at The Bishop Langley, Durham, £3.10/pint. Copper beer with a thin but smooth, off-white head. The aroma is sharp and grassy with damp leaf notes, The taste is largely similar, with grassy, earthy flavours and a long dry finish, slightly improved by a lurking sweetness that comes to the fore late on. A little harsh and not one I enjoyed much.
