The Durham Brewery - Cloister

I have had one beer from the Durham Brewery before, a bottle of St. Cuthbert, which was a very enjoyable very hoppy IPA.
Cloister is a 4.5% bitter, a lovely golden yellow in colour with beautiful fluffy big head, see the picture below.
There is a bright fresh hoppy aroma, a little floral too. Wonderful citrus hops and balanced malt undertone, and bitterness that flows down the throat. This is a really good beer, although it kinda cooled down with all its intensity as the pint went on quite noticeably. Still very enjoyable and i'll keep an eye out for their beer's.


  1. I normally actively avoid bottle conditioned beers as I've had so many bad experiences, but Durham's are some of the best BC ales you can get. If you can get hold of some Temptation (10.5% stout) you really must try it!

  2. Hello brewers, that this Christmas will bring much happiness to all and many beers ...
    Happy Christmas ...........
