berkshirejohn (4400) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2008
500ml bottle from Tesco, Ashford, Kent. Copper with a thin ring of white head; rich malt aroma; quite lively in the mouth with a sweet blackberry fruitiness, and a dry and nicely bitter finish. Very pleasant.

joe19612 (1813) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours a murky dark brown colour with a medium white head. The aroma is of malt the taste is has a bit of sweetness in and more than a hint of fruit, and a slight dry finish. Not a bad beer.

sm89walt (1750) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2008
Bottle. A deep amber colour with a handsome, fairly large white head. A strong, yet single-minded aroma of caramel malts. Sweet malty taste with an earthy and occasionally citric hop flavour coming through. Good, but straightforward body.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
Bottle from Tesco. Deep amber with next to no head. Light malt and earthy hop aroma. Slightly sweet, biscuit malt flavour with a touch of fruit and a decent bitter finish. Good.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
This commemorative brew was always going to be staid and unremarkable. Having said that, it’s actually quite good. Amber. Slightly roasty caramel malt aroma. Sweet malt taste with some citric backing and a mid bitter finish. Straightforward and solid.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2008
Bottle from the Woolpack, Banbury, Oxon had this 02-04-08 Amber pour with a busy white head. Reasonable bitterness, plenty of caramel, I kept thinking that this really doesn’t have the depth of flavour or keeps me interested in the way that other Purity beers do, but it was ok finished off a bit dry.

imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, from The Woolpack, Banbury. Orange amber with white head. A premium bitter which stays true to style, a fullish body with caramel malts giving a touch of roast and depth, dryness then good bittering hops that give an underlying greenness and a sweeter lighter note too. Well balanced and rounded, not bad.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle, from Tesco Cleethorpes. Amber gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Pleasant flowery, peppery hops, sweet caramel and melon fruitiness in the nose. Earthy and slightly roasted in the mouth with a hint of toffee sweetness, gentle toasted bitterness in the finish with a little lingering sweetness.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
Steadily fizzing dark amber with layers of lace. Head going nowhere. Nose musty, citrussy, packed with sweaty green hop resins. Succulent bitter citrus hop flavour with a big long sweet freshbread aftertaste, marmalade, lemon rind and gentle sulphur. Clean soft and lemony with assertively bitter hops. Quite a well-conditioned characterful bottled ale.

Garrat (1255) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2008
