County Durham Signature Ale

My bro hosted me for board games shortly after moving into his new apartment, and like a good host, he had a fridge full of beer.  Like a good host who's brother writes a beer blog, he had his fridge full of delicious microbrews.  Before game time, managed to get in a quick review of County Durham Signature Ale.

CDSA is brewed by the Durham Brewing Company out of Pickering, Ontario. It's sold in 341mL bottles and contains the standard 5% slcohol. It pours an ever-so-slightly hazy brass colour.
This beer has a genuinely excellent aroma.  It's sweet and warm with some soft peachy notes over a slight hop bitterness. The flavour is mild and well-rounded. It starts with some sweet fruit notes and builds to a pleasant almost bitter finish.

County Durham Signature Ale is a nice, well balanced ale. Great, subtle flavours make this a beer well worth trying. It's got enough character for a beer nerd, but it's approachable enough to suit less discriminating tastes.
 Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
