ianwelby (546) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
An amber beer with a thick head. A slight zesty aroma and the flavour is similar but slightly sweeter than I expected from the smell. Itís not particularly strong-tasting but itís quite refreshing anyway.

JorgeLee (1271) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Cask at the Redan W2. Pale gold coloured bitter. Very pleasant hop bitterness, hints of grapefruit and other citrus. Slips down very easily. A good example of this style.

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Cask; amber-gold, thin white head; malty and very bitter; this has way too much of an alcoholic grapefruit juice feel to it to be enjoyable; a disappointment.

AWS9 (506) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
On tap. Frothy golden pour, meh. Mild hop aroma. Generally smooth hop taste with a dissipating finish. Grass and floral notes. Bready. Nothing too of note here...

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.
