3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The Old Fountain. The pour’s deep gold with a tiny head. The nose is syrupy cereal sweetness, some peaches and apricot. Summery fruits. The taste is more mild grain. Honey and plenty of summery orchard fruit. Baked bread. Medium body, a bit too syrupy on the palate. Overall, not bad, though Oakham make some much better stuff than this.

Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage. Straw with a thin cream head; sweet and grainy aroma; smooth oily texture, swet and grainy flavour with a hint of tropical fruit; the finish is dry with some quinine bitterness and warming, spicy, alcohol. More of a Barley Wine in my opinion.

Hand-pulled half-pint in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 25th Sep 2014. Pale golden body with a white crown. Fairly sweet yet citrusy feel to both the aroma and taste. Lemon and pineapple flavours combine and contradict each other while the alcohol hides in the background.
