Kent Beer fest July 2007. Malty. Almonds and bananas. Touch of iron and butter. Yummy.

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.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2007
Cask handpull at The Rake, Borough Market. Gold, thin white head. Bit yeasty on aroma. Decent citrus hops, bit of diacetyl possibly. Not good.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2007
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.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2007
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.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2006
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.

DanielBrown (3625) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2006
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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 7, 2006
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.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2006
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.
