First impressions can last a life time and our farms maverick hound UBU certainly made his mark when Purity built their new brewhouse; by running across the freshly poured courtyard concrete. Those paw prints are here to this day. UBU’s notoriety as a bit of a nuisance carried from day to day with ‘tails’ of obstructing the dray, sleeping in the brewery and growling at guests. No one could really get angry at UBU though as with all the exasperating exploits came a faithful friend, brim-full of real character. Pure UBU Amber Ale is a brilliant beer, dedicated to those who dare to be different and stand out from the crowd.
Pure UBU is a distinctive, full flavoured beer with a sweeter finish and dark fruit notes. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Crystal, Black and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim and Cascade hops with an IBU 36.Purity Brewing Co.
The 3rd in a series of IPAs exploring the depths and breadths of modern IPA brewing. Ekuanot, Ella and Enigma hops are used in the kettle, whirlpool and dry hop delivering a complex hop profile of tropical fruit, over ripe mango, red currants and spice. A slightly more complex malt bill including oats and a small portion of Cara Red gives a little balancing sweetness, whilst an American Ale yeast strain keeps the beer clean, precise and bright.
Developed as a style by brewers in the Baltic states when trying to emulate the exported Porters of the UK, bottom fermenting Lager yeast and cold fermentations were used in place of warm, Ale fermentations. Aromas of chocolate and roasted coffee dominate the nose, along with notes of herbs & spice. The palate is smooth and chocolatey, with a touch of sweetness balanced by a gentle bitterness.
