Cask; Seasonal - September & October. Originally brewed as a Special for Peterborough beer festival 2009.
Pharaoh’s Gold in colour with an aroma rich with kiwi fruit. A powerful taste of lime zest and citrus flavours yield to a hop resin background, before you pay homage to a long, bitter finish that’s drier than a camel’s toe!

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!

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
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.

harrisoni (16051) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
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.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2010
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.

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.

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010
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.

Ale_Imp (1) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010 does not count
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).

planky84 (2644) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Cask at the ’Grape and Grain’ beer festival, Crystal Palace. Gold pour with a white head. Citrus, pineapple and hop aromas. Nice citrus burst in the taste with a bit of caramel and herbs. Sharp hop finish. Refreshing.

dynamiteninja (1709) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2010
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.
