3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Whalebone, Norwich. Pours a clear, bright golden colour with a one finger frothy & lasting white head. Rounded & firm citrus profile, all tangerine, peach & lemon. Some woody, nuttiness on the mid palate. Not quite a JHB on ’roids, but it’s a fuller bodied, though still lightish, juicy & quaffable approach. Soft mouthfeel and a nice finishing bitterness. Ever so drinkable and ever relaiable when a new scoop evades.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Cloisters. Love this brewery but the retired Nelson Sauvin single hop and the Citra are my favourites. Great to see it on in Bonnie Scotland though! A blonde ale with a fair white head. Aroma of grassy hops, yeast and barley. Flavours of passion fruit, grassy notes with barley again and a little caramel. Light bitterness and a dry finish. Highly sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow colour, minimal white head. Intense, hoppy nose with juicy citrus fruits, a hint of passion fruit and light herbal touch. Bitter taste, balancing pale caramel malts. Almost too sweet. Bitter aftertaste with some herbs and light breadiness. Medium body, oily and low carbonated palate.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013 On cask at The Wharf Inn, Welford, Northants. A great golden coloured summer drink with strong citrus taste. Very smooth and an excellent beer for it’s style. --- 08/05/13 - cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Not as outstanding as before, however, this may because there is so much good stuff around at the moment.

Pours a clear yellow colour without a head. Aroma of very strong citrus and orange peel with grass. Flavour of bitter hops, grass, citrus and some sourness. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, citrusy bitter, finish. Yet another pleasant golden ale from Oakham.

0.5 l bottle at Kitty’s, Helsinki, thanks Jukka S! Golden to copper color with quickly vanishing head. The aromas of caramel, green apple and tart resiny hops. The flavor is biscuity and caramelly with some green apple and resiny hops. Low carbonation, reminds very much a cask ale.
