500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent head and good lacing. Flavours of stone fruits - peach, apricot and nectarine. A good citrus background with a little grass and mild grain. Sweetness and bitterness in very good balance here, leaving a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very nice indeed, this would make an excellent session beer.

Pale golden coloured ale with an ugly bubbly head. Its character is hoppy tropical fruits in both aroma and taste but with a bitter aftertaste.

Cask. Pale golden beer. Smells like its gonna be hoppy! Tastes like it is hoppy but a nice amount, like you expect from Oakham beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
