3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Cask at the Bulls Head, Barston, Solihull. Clear amber pour with a big frothy head, typical of an English bitter. The hops are very evident in the aroma which isnít overpowering. For me, this beer is as close as you can get to the perfect English pint. The bitterness is refreshing, smooth and well handled. It sits nicely on the palate just to remind you itís still there for just the right period of time. At 4.7% itís the right ABV to qualify as a great session ale and good for hot summer days or cold winter nights. Itís well-kept ales like this that make me miss my homeland more than is good for me and hastens my eventual return. I only wished that Purity would expand their small range of excellent ales.

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours golden with a slight haze and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grapefruit and pine. The taste is just wall to wall grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied and creamily textured with a tangy fresh finish. Overall, the grapefruit aspect is a little one-dimensional but itís well executed.

Handpull at The Eagle (Shepherdess Walk). Clear gold with average white frothy head. Smells and tastes like citrus zest, floral bitterness and cereal non-sweetness. Solid body, astringent and solidly carbonated. Pretty good!!

On cask at the Haymarket. Pours a light golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, barley and yeast. Similar flavours, quite grainy overall. Mildly dry and bitter with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Nice.

Cask @ The Volunteer. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Minimal resin aroma. Resin, tropical & citrus fruit flavour. Fruity aftertaste. A bit watery & I think a slightly over-rated blonde beer.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle.Wen first opend the aroma was generally weak but when allowed to breathe a lovely orange nose. Appearance is of a darker than average golden beer with a thick white head that becomes increasingly lacey. Taste is of biscuity malts giving way to a citrusy then bitter finish. Not sure why i held off tasting this one for so long but it aint too shabby!
