3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11th September 2009
Cask at Chapel Beer Festival. Very slight haze on this pale gold beer. Light crisp palate. Smooth and juicy hops. Sweetish pineapple, grapefruit and other yellow fruits. More sweet than bitter until the aftertaste when it turns pretty bitter. Fresh and tasty!

Cask at the Rake, 21st Sept 2010. Golden straw colour with not much head. Dry, quite light aroma. Intense grassy hops in the mouth with lemon and ganja hints. Very dry lemony finish. Not too heavy, very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at St Albans BF 2010. Been waiting ages to try this. Pale gold. Twards the end of the barrel. Quite ascetic hop aroma but just right side of sharp. Yes not a lot of condition, makes a difference. Bu the hops are indestructable. Hoppy, sharp and palate dancing. Hoppy as hell. Lovely sharp and bitter beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Pub, Leicester. Brilliant gold, uneven white top. A beer in rare condition. Stewed green mango, lemon zest, pissy toilet rug aroma of huge beauty. Still, creamy, shot through with soft tropical pink/green fruit-aromatised cream, harshened with grapefruit and nut husk. More bollocks and balance than Mikkeller’s single hop IPAs. Honeyed white toast and cashew. Getting very close to total beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Poured with a medium sized & lasting fluffy white head. A nice & bright golden yellow body. The aroma is fantastic, loaded with grapefruit, lemon sherbet & peach with an underlying creamy strawberry cheesecake quality about it. Lemon zest & a brilliant though subtle pale malt sweetness leads to a piney, grapefruity finish. So crisp & hoppy, light bodied & superbly quaffable. Finishes slightly dry with a great length to the end. Really fantastic, I’m still waiting for Oakham to put a foot wrong.

Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Golden with an off-white foam. Aromas are lots of grapefruit and kiwi with light biscuit malts. Floral and peppery with yeast. Flavours are bitter grapefruit with green piney notes. Some sweet biscuit malts on the base. Really fresh and fruity with a peppery, dry, bitter finish. Really good.

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cast, The White Hart, St Albans. Pale in colour. Childish aroma, think Lilt/Um-Bongo. Fruity blast on initial taste, sweet at first followed by bitter lemon. Dry finish. A grower that packs a punch...(fruit).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. The Pub, Leicester. Mmmm. I liked this one a lot. Thin white head, pale gold body. Good lacing. Grapefruit, biscuit and hoppy aroma. Astringent. Bitter dry finish. Soft mouthfeel.
