Very lively out of the pump and slow to clear. Quite a thick cream head. Wasn’t convinced about the quality of the barrel at first as there was some vinegar in the scent, but afterwards in the mouth it was hoppy, with a good bitterness.

Cask handpull at The Rake, Borough Market. Gold, thin white head. Bit yeasty on aroma. Decent citrus hops, bit of diacetyl possibly. Not good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Cask, Chequers Inn, Bulkington. Creamily milky pint resolving into a lagery amber. Lacework aplenty. Crisply leafy green hop snout. Robust grapefruit bitterness with a biscuity malt background. A hint of shampoo in the finish. Straightforward and easy-drinking but pretty good. (Bottled) Fresh leafy hop and sweet crackerbread malt. 4.3%. Sweet citrussy refreshment.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Cask at the Maltings, York. Pours a classic golden amber with a dense half-inch white head that lasts and laces significantly. Aroma is very indistinct and subtle, with citrus the only major player I could make out. Taste is upfront nice citrus hop character with lemon and orange, through the middle there is a distinct toffee malt presence that blends well. This is slightly sour (but not in an infected sort of way) in the finish, and slightly metallic. Medium bitterness with a faint rasping presence on the tongue.

No head, no taste, I wish I had chosen the one ale that actually took my first fancy MHB. So purity but I know your a new brewery but this pint was a let down.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at London Drinker Beer Festival (Friday session), March 2006. Definitely gold in colour, but seemed to lack the vibrant aromatic character that I look for in a golden beer. Dry and clean but the mouthfeel was a touch dull. A shame, as this was my first beer from a new brewery. I suspect this beer was a bit tired, as was I after spending all the previous day at the festival and having to endure ludicrously crowded conditions on the Friday evening session. Time to go home.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Quite a good Golden beer. Some nice, hoppy notes in a fizzy coat. Not the strongest flavour, but OK.

Half pint pulled at The Old Thatched Tavern in Stratford-upon-Avon, a slightly hazy golden colour with a filmy white head (nice glass though). A punchy fruity hop aroma with plenty of citrus. Some extremely complex flavours - flowery and citrus, some honey, and also a smoked taste - maybe too many flavours. Smooth at the front of the tongue with a sharpish bittter finish, dry throughout. Certainly didn’t cause me any problems for the Half-Marathon the next day.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival Fri 21-04-06. I was very impressed with both of the Purity beers served at this event. Tasted wonderfully fresh much like the other Purity beer. A golden beer that is full of hops and taste, this would make a super session beer, lovely lingering finish an excellent beer.
