Pint in the Almanack, Leicester. Tasted pretty damn good. Bitter and hoppy but perhaps not quite deserving of midlands best beer?

Beermack (684) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Beautiful hazy gold with big, lasting white head and plenty of thick lacing. Aroma is citrus (grapefruit especially), touch of tangerine, lovely pale malts too. Taste is exactly as you'd want a session golden ale to be - beautiful pale malt character - full of biscuity notes, grapefruit, lemon, grassy hop notes, touch of spice. Mouthfeel medium/light. Aftertaste brief but with a lovely tingle of citrus zest. You could literally drink this from dawn to dusk. And then session on it throughout the night as well. Delicious.

jmgreenuk (5151) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle from Connolly’s wines, Solihull. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a broken white head. The aroma is of toffee and it just hits you the moment you smell it. The flavour is medium bitter, with a hint of grapefruit, slightly floral and with a smooth palate. This really is a lovely and very drinkable session beer. One thing that annoys me about Purity above anything else is that they only brew their three regular beers and no specials. Their standard ales are so good that it’s sad they don’t give us something special to look forward to every once in a while. I’d love to see what they were capable of.

Arve_Christian (3368) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
Cask ale at The Meridian at Birmingham Airport- part of 3 pc Guest ale sampling set, 1/3 of a pint. Golden color, good foam. Good fruitiness combined with distinct hops- medium aroma intensity. Medium/light body & medium complexity. Solid bitterness- nicely balanced Very enjoyable

SarkyNorthener (2484) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask@thefoxglove, kirkburton. Hazy gold colour. Small fruit aroma. Taste is of mild grapefruit and bitter with a sourish aftertaste. An ok bitter but not one of the best purity brews.

AshtonMcCobb (3119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden as expected with a nice frothy head. The nose has a creamy meadowsweet note and the taste confirms this and in fact there is a note that approaches custard. The palate is light to medium in structure and texture with a zingy finish. Overall, nice ale.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Cask by handpump at Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh (8 Sep 12) - clear golden diminishing white head, cereal malt aroma and flavour, bitter taste and aftertaste, more a bitter than golden ale

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Cask at GBBF, 7/8/12. Clear, light gold. Grainy tasting pale malt. Slightly herby hops, but not much in the way of hops. Mostly cereally taste, fairly clean. Light body. Faint floral aroma.
