BenOver (175) - 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 (8837) - 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.

spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 25, 2014
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.
