Cask; Special (One Hop series) - August 2005.
Mount Hood hops from USA.
Each beer features a single variety of hop from around the world. Every beer in the series undergoes five separate additions of the particular hop into the brew kettle. Whole hops are then added to the “hopback”, in which the hot brew passes on its way to the fermenter. All the beers will have the same degree of hoppy bitterness, and drinkers are able to compare the aroma, flavour, and pleasing aftertaste of each of the varieties. Instead of using specialty malts that might mask the flavour of the hop, only Maris Otter pale malt is used. Maris Otter is the finest strain of malt available. With only pale malt used, there is little to come between the hop lover and the hop.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Harbury BF. A straw gold coloured beer with a hoppy fruity aroma. I picked up mandarin and pineapple. The taste is hoppy with more nice fruits. A bit creamy in the body. Nice and tasty.

Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’05. Brownish corn with whisped head. Delicate, light aromatic pale ale. Lemony and spicy, an interesting project to show the different characteristics of hops. Only wish I could get to try more of them.
