UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Cask handpull at The Wellington, Birmingham. Copper colour and as clear as a bell. Lasting beige head. Earthy fruity malty aroma. OK condition, quite rounded in mouth, with a nutty fruitiness in mouth. Nice strawberry jam. Finish has caramel and a slight earthy hop sting. Rather nice.
500ml pasteurised bottle 4.8%. Copper with lasting beige head. Very biscuity bitter, decent hop malt balance with some yeasty character. Not much in mouth, some biscuit, some candy sugar on swallow. Faint hop finish. No real kick. It’s a bitter. imdownthepub (15160) - 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. Fin (10840) - 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.

Bottle. Amber gold with a white head. Aromas are grain and honey with caramel malts. Floral with citrus and pear. Flavours are grain with toffee malts. Some citrus with peppery, soapy notes. Dry on the finish. JorisPPattyn (10060) - BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2009
Medium yellowish, fine & dense head over pale foxy-amber beer. Sweet nose, pineapple ester, some discreet hops, freshly baked bread. Good British bitter characteristics, well-hopped; some dry, non-sweet malts and very diluted caramel. Refreshing. Light to medium bodied (which probably turns it into a strong ale, UK perception willing). Dry finish & aftertaste. Good one, for sure! Thanks to DeanS!

Fruit and hop aromas. White head. Some carbonation. Golden coloured and hoppy with a little dryness and bitterness in an earthy malt finish. downender (8774) - 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. DruncanVeasey (8259) - Nr NUNEATON, 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.
