Welcome to the Drink in the Sights Magus from Durham Brewery Beer Review. That's right I'm still working my way through my latest gluten free beer selection and this is, I think, my second Durham Brewery beer review. Rather predictably the brewery is based in Durham where they've been happily brewing away and winning awards since 1994. They have a couple of gluten free beers so no doubt I'll be trying them at some point too. Magus from Durham Brewery contains a nice mild 3.8% alcohol which makes it a sensible choice if you're planning a fairly long session. The beer pours a really light, clear straw colour with a pretty impressive fluffy white head, it doesn't look bad to be fair, and that's coming from a dark beer lover. You'll get a pretty strong hoppy fruits aroma with a bit of citrus and some biscuit malt notes.
Magus from Durham Brewery has an unsurprisingly light, crisp, and refreshing texture, making it a good summer barbecue choice, which is a shame as I had it in mid January. The taste wont surprise, excite, or upset anyone in all honesty as it's a fairly standard pale ale, that said though is if I was going to have a gluten free summer drinking session I'd certainly put Magus on the list. There's plenty of light citrus fruits notes, but just enough malts to keep them under control. Magus from Durham Brewery is a very good example of what a pale ale should taste like. 7.5 out of 10.
