4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 27th Apr 2009, drank 10 Mar 2009. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint glass.
Looked like a Lager/Pilsner, Pure Gold by name and looks it would seem.
Good English beery smell, hops and barley mixing togethr like they should. A sweetness is present but not enough to turn the aroma sickly, just a hint of summer gardens and flowers.
English Maris Otter and Cara Gold malts, hence the clour, the blend of Northern Brewer, Fuggles, Hereford Goldings and Styrian Goldings Hops ensure the taste follows the aroma to give a truely English feel to the taste and drinkability. The label goes on to say it has dry, bitter notes, it certainly does and it does it very well.
I am rapidly likeing this breweries products. The body is solid for a 4.3% bitter and it has a lot more flavour than the colour suggests. This is one very well balanced beer and very easy to drink. Pity I couldn’t get the head to stay on the beer as I drank it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at The Old Fourpenny Shop Hotel, Warwick. Pure Gold colour with stable white head. Fresh hoppy sizzler, music to the tastebuds with a pleasant grainy malt base. The flavour is long, proving what you can do with good English hops. After a while there is a sweet, bakers yeast note coming through. Very decent beer.

Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival Fri 21-04-06. I was very impressed with both of the Purity beers served at this event. Tasted wonderfully fresh much like the other Purity beer. A golden beer that is full of hops and taste, this would make a super session beer, lovely lingering finish an excellent beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at the Wellington, Birmingham] Clear golden colour, long-lasting white head with no real rising carbonation to speak of. Slight aroma of hops, on the palate tastes like an easy-drinking golden ale – good balance of hops and malt with citrus flavours coming to the fore. Dry at the finish but not really biscuity. Highly sessionable and very, very nice

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
