BenOver (145) - SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours hazy golden with minimum head. Aroma is a bit citrusy, masked with a hoppy freshness. After a while the caramel malt smell comes to you too. Taste is very fresh. At first you do’nt feel anything, but right after the carbonation kicks in, you get a very refreshing hop kick, that does not stay with you too long. A very fine beer.

leaparsons (8635) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Golden with an off white foam. Aromas are restrained mixed tropical fruit with oranges. Quite a malty backbone for an Oakham, with toast and caramel. Some pithy grapefruit with dusty yeast. Flavours are sweet toasted malts with pineapple and lemon. Grapefruit with green hops. Spicy on the finish. Good.

Another fabulous beer from Oakham. Packed with flavour from the off, starting with tropical fruits, working it’s way towards a hoppy punch at the end. Will buy again.

Holmen1 (3191) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal okt-14: dentredje første fra Oakham denne kvelden. Klar og lys gylden med kort hvitt skum. Mer malt og mindre humle i aroma og smak enn av de foregående (Citra og Inferno), men også denne er en elegant og behagelig øl med en fint balansert bitterhet i den tørre avslutningen. Ingen grunn til å ta farvel.

Holmen2 (1546) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 13.10.14. Very pale golden. Small and diminishing white head. Small, but fruity aroma reminiscent of a Belgian blond. Well-balanced taste with pale malt and citrusy hops. Bitterness lingers on in aftertaste. Good drinkability.
