Bottle, 500ml. An amber-coloured pour with almost no head. A strong, room-filling aroma of floral aromatic hops with some malt and biscuity notes. A nice hoppy, malty taste with some honey, banana and a hint of biscuit. A nice sweet, hoppy finish. Very light carbonation. Pretty good, but rather similar to Doom Bar... dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2006
Gravity at Plymouth Beer Festival. Amber with no head. Scent is honey, maybe slightly vinegary. Taste is predominantly of malts. OK but average.

It says "Pure" also in the name, so maybe the name is wrong. But what counts is the flavour, it was not annoying and nice in aroma. The foam was bubbling and the colour nice. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
Bottle. Pleasant toasty, cereal nose. Orangey amber hue with a weak head and some lace. Flavour takes the standard run from initial sweet malt to a bitter finish that refreshes but doesn’t inspire. That said, it’s very drinkable. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2006

Wheat and some hop aroma. Golden amber coloured hoppy and floral with a crisp bitter and slightly dry wheat and malt finish. Ungstrup (37625) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2006
[Cask at GBBF 2005] An orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty - but quite light. The flavor is boring with light notes of caramel, leading to a light hoppy dry end. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Jan 07 Cask conditioned @ South Western Arms, Soton. I tried this again as I only remembered having the bottled version of this. Sllight banana nose with caramelly malts. Uninteresting hops lurking in the background. Over sweetly malty for me. 2.7
May 06 Cask conditioned @ The Crown, Old Basing. Slightly fruity banana hint to the malts. Not lots going on, mostly malty. 2.8
Oct 05Bottle (from Tescos). Malt focussed bitter. Light slighty sweet malt - not overly interesting. 2.6
